Summit Police Department

Chief’s Message

Welcome to the Summit Police Department’s Website.

I’m proud to serve the communities of Summit and Dousman. Our police department operates 24 hours a day, as well as providing lake patrols during the summer months. The men and women of this department are truly dedicated to these communities.

Recently, we placed an increased emphasis on training – both internally and externally, with neighboring departments, with business partners, and with county, state, and federal agencies. I believe the result of this on-going commitment to knowledge and skill building will propel our agency to the highest levels of professionalism and proactive problem solving.

We are launching these newly designed webpages as part of our community outreach program. We hope to provide a central location that residents, visitors, and business owners can browse and find the information they seek. This site will also contain information on some of the services we provide, such as vacation house checks, auto lock-out service, community appearances and education, and ride-alongs.

We welcome any input for making this site, our department, and our community a better place to live, work and play. Please remember that we are here to serve you. Your safety and security are our main objectives.
