Welcome to the Somerset Police Department website and thank you for your interest in us. I hope our site will satisfy your curiosity about out department and its procedures, but if it does not please feel free to contact any of our staff. You will find information about contacting us further into the site.
If you are visiting us from afar please allow me to tell you about our community and our department. Somerset is a village of 2,400 located in St. Croix County. We are minutes from the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area in one of the most dynamic regions of Wisconsin.
The department is staffed with two sergeants, three patrol officers and a complement of part-time officers. One of our officers is assigned as a full-time school liaison officer. Our liaison officer serves our school campus area, which is comprised of an elementary school, middle school, and high school. Our full time officers are expected to maintain instructor status in critical areas of law enforcement such as emergency vehicle operation, firearms and emergency medical services. Several are also instructors for local community college’s law enforcement programs.
Every one of our officers is a dedicated professional committed to serving their community. I am proud to say that the majority of our residents know our officers by their first name and our officers actively seek opportunities to make positive contacts with our citizens. Our department is a small group of professionals who take to heart the responsibilities of being a police officer. We are privileged in having the support of our community and we will continue to do our best to earn that support.
