I would like to inform you about your police department. First and foremost, the Menomonee Falls Police Department (MFPD) is an organization of professional individuals dedicated to the safety of all citizens who live, work and recreate in the Village. We strive to be fair in our interactions with our citizens and to treat all with dignity and respect. We do not condone bias, or use of excessive force. A safe community is built on the mutual trust and respect between the officers and the citizens. That is the goal of our police department.
The mission statement of our department along with our values are as listed:
