The Fox Point Police Department is recognized by the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group (WILEAG) as having met standards for a professional police organization. This recognition includes a review of our agency policies to ensure they meet current standards and legal principles.
This portion of our website provides access to select agency directives and General Orders as outlined in Wisconsin law. We encourage members of the public who have questions about agency policy or practices to contact the department and meet with a member of the command staff to answer questions or provide clarification.
The department General Orders manual is reviewed annually for corrections or necessary modifications and is re-published in June. Directives that require updates will note the date of the last update on the document header. Special Orders are issued when a General Order is updated mid-year and are subsequently incorporated into the General Orders manual during the following review cycle.
