What's Happening Around the PD?!

First of all, long time department member, Christine Dobbs, has been selected as the Eagle River Chief of  Police and has already assumed her new duties. She replaces Mark Vander Bloomen who has recently retired. We wish Mark and Kara well in their future endeavors.

We are holding an informational meeting at 5:00 p.m., on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at Eagle River City Hall. This is partnered with Vilas County Health Department and the Vilas County Sheriff's Department. This meeting will be about what drugs trends are current in our communities. 


We are holding a Concealed Carry course at 8:00 a.m., on May 18, 2019 at the Eagle River City Hall. Pre-registration is required. Registrations forms are available at the department. Contact (715)479-1941 for more information.

We will be hiring a new full time officer in the near future. Check back for application dates and deadlines.

Projects ahead include festival planning for traffic flow, influx of traffic from our returning residents and area visitors. Our goal is to make our community roads as safe as they can be for our motoring public and pedestrians. Please drive slowly in the downtown area, watching out for pedestrians, kids on bicycles and many other hazards out there. Lock vehicles when unattended. 

Do not leave dogs in your vehicle while shopping or visiting area attractions. We receive many complaints during the warm or hot months about dogs in vehicles. There are serious consequences to this if your dog is found to be in distress. Unless  you can take Fido with you to the places your visiting, the best place is at home during the hot, dog days of summer.
