OPD Policies

Thank you for your interest in the policies of the Oregon Police Department. It is one of our goals to make ourselves accessible to the community that we serve, and we believe it is important for our citizens to know what they can expect from their police department. We are proud of our policies and hope by publishing these documents that it will benefit our citizens.


The policies contained herein are rules that all members of the Oregon Police Department follow while carrying out the mission of the department. The policies posted on this site contain the same information that is provided to all department employees. As changes in society and technology emerge, our policies will also evolve in order to best serve and protect our community. Future changes to these policies will be updated on this site periodically.


While this manual represents most of our administrative and operational policies, it is important to note that a few policies are not shared here and/or some information has been redacted due to concerns for public safety, officer safety and investigative tactics. Please also bear in mind when it comes to police response that each situation is different. It is not possible to anticipate every situation that may arise or prescribe a specific course of action appropriate for every scenario. Therefore, it is necessary that all employees routinely exercise discretion, common sense and good judgment.


Disclaimer:  These online copies may not be the most current version of our policies, as the online copies are only updated a couple times a year.  If you want to verify if a policy listed here is the most current or if you have any questions about any of the policies, please contact the Oregon Police Department at 608-835-3111 or email oregonpolice@vil.oregon.wi.us.
