Our Department

The Seymour Police Department is comprised of a Chief of Police, a Patrol Investigator and four patrol officers.  The full time staff is complemented by three part time patrol officers and support staff.  Our minimum staffing is one patrol officer for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Our department operates on a 12 hour shift schedule, with two officers assigned to the day shift and two officers assigned to the night shift on rotating schedules.    

The patrol division is the backbone and most visible part of a law enforcement agency.  Patrol is responsible for responding to calls for service from the public, including a rapid response to emergency situations.  Some examples of a call for service include traffic crashes, reports of criminal activity, city ordinance violations, domestic violence, general complaints, traffic complaints, property disputes, suspicious persons, medical assistance, and many other calls for service.  Our narcotics detection/search and rescue canine is assigned to night shift patrol, and is on-call for emergencies or detection work as required.  

Additionally, traffic enforcement and preventive patrols are vital parts of patrol's responsibility.  Traffic problems are an important issue being addressed by law enforcement today.  This is mainly due to the large number of traffic fatalities, injuries, and the ever-increasing volume of traffic on our public streets and highways in the United States.  Current Department of Transportation DOT statistics indicate that approximately 12,000 vehicles pass through Seymour weekly.  Preventive and highly visible patrol vehicles are instrumental in crime control and providing police services.  The marked patrol unit provides accessibility by the public to law enforcement personnel and a rapid response to emergency situations. The patrol division provides traffic enforcement and responds to approximately 3,100 calls for service a year.

Ford Police Interceptor Utility

Our fleet consists of four Ford Police Interceptor Utility vehicles.  Two of the vehicles are designated for patrol, one as a specialized K9 unit and one as an unmarked unit for investigations. 

The Seymour Police Department now has the ability to comprise an eye witness account of our calls for service. The Police Department has implemented the AXON wearable video camera system effective January 2018. AXON has allowed the recording of audio and video of both the officer and the citizen he/she has contact with. AXON is very noticeable when it is recording. When the camera is in the operational mode AXONwill display a red light as demonstrated in the attached photograph worn by Officer.

This will inform the citizen that the unit is in the recording mode. The AXON camera system will convey major benefits to the Department and the community. First and foremost, this equipment will provide enhanced transparency for the Department. It leaves no room for question because it will encapsulate an exact playback of what occurred on the call for service. AXON will also be used as valuable training tool for the education of department personnel and for the purpose of evaluating use of force incidents. This system has been supported with a solid policy.

Support Services Trailer

In Partnership with the Outagamie County Sheriff's Department, the Seymour Police Department provides bicycles for safety education.

Annually our Officers provide the 3rd grade Rockledge Intermediate children with bicycle safety education.  We also provide bicycle education safety lessons during the annual Safety Day event in May.

Bike Patrol

Bicycle patrol is utilized during special events, including the annual “Burgerfest” celebration in early August.  Bicycle patrol allows an officer to navigate large crowds and interact with the community during these events.
