Chief's Welcome

Professional & Courteous Service


Chief Ruzinski.jpgWelcome to the Menomonee Falls Police Department website. As the Chief of Police, I am both honored and privileged to serve this great community. Our department consists of approximately 78 full-time employees, including 58 sworn officers. An additional variable number of part-time employees brings the overall employment to around 94 employees at any given time.

The Menomonee Falls Police Department polices the Village of Menomonee Falls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The men and women of the Menomonee Falls Police Department are dedicated to keeping this a safe community in which to live, work and recreate. Our members, both law enforcement and civilian personnel will strive to treat all citizens with dignity and respect and carry on their duties in a professional and courteous manner. We focus our patrol strategies on knowing our community and problem solving.

Community Partnerships


The Village of Menomonee Falls is a rich community where all residents take a vested interest in their neighborhoods. This is proven through citizen involvement in the Neighborhood Watch program and Citizen's Police Academy. Law Enforcement is dependent upon the citizens it serves to assist in maintaining a safe environment. The citizens of the Village of Menomonee Falls rise to that challenge. In 2009, our Neighborhood Watch was voted #1 block watch in the country by the National Sheriff's Association. Our corporate partners are just as dedicated to the community, In 2010 through a generous donation by Kohl's Corporate, the Menomonee Falls Police Department received our first K-9 unit.
 
Whether it is functions sanctioned through organized entities such as the Optimist and Rotary Clubs, or the sponsorship of local businesses to support the police department, we are truly all partners in keeping this community safe, while allowing it to grow. Furthermore, our children are one of our most precious resources.

DARE & Other Programs


The Menomonee Falls Police Department will continue to work closely with our school system protecting that resource and mentoring our children to become educated, productive leaders of the future. Continuing with such programs as D.A.R.E., the School Resource Officers, and Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) the Menomonee Falls Police Department is dedicated to the children of this community.

I will continue to serve this community, upholding the tradition of this great police department. We are truly a close knit community keeping alive the traditions of a small hometown, yet welcoming new residents and businesses. Thank you for visiting this website. I hope you find it both informative and helpful. Stay safe and enjoy everything this great community, the Village of Menomonee Falls, has to offer.

Sincerely,
Anna M. Ruzinski
Chief of Police
