About the West Salem Police Department
The West Salem Police Department has been proudly serving our community for many years. We, the members of the West Salem Police Department, are guided by the highest ethical standards. We provide the highest quality of personalized services to all who live, work, visit, and travel through our village. This is accomplished by empowering employees to build partnerships with the community and other service providers to prevent and solve crime, lessen fear, and reduce neighborhood problems.
We are committed to enhancing our community’s safety and quality of life through continuous improvement of our work. We are a community-oriented police department as defined by the people we serve. We believe in the dignity of all people and respect individual and constitutional rights in fulfilling this mission.
We are constantly evaluating the quality of our service and what, if any, new services we can provide, all while maintaining fiscal responsibility. Whether it is bicycle or foot patrol, vehicle registration / renewal services, equipping squads with automatic defibrillators (AED’s), active participation and commitment with the Coulee Region Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce (CRICACT), or the creation of this website, the entire staff of the West Salem Police Department is committed to this mission.
