Patrol Division

Our Patrol Division is our largest component of the Plover Police Department with 12 Patrol Officers Supervised by 2 Sergeants.  Our Patrol division responds to calls 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Duties

Typical duties of a patrol officer include residential and business patrols, enforcement of state, local and traffic offenses, investigation of motor vehicle crashes, and responses to calls for service and crimes in progress.   Officers conduct patrols in marked and unmarked vehicles, bicycles and occasional foot patrols.

Special Units

UAV Program

The Plover Police Department also operates the Inspire 1 UAV Platform for Search and Rescue, tactical operations, Fire Ground oversight, and public relations activities as required.

SWAT

The Plover Police Department works in collaboration with the Stevens Point Police Department and together they form a joint Special Weapons and Tactics Team.

K-9

The Plover Police Department has one K-9 Unit.  K-9 Ice is a German Shepherd who was trained at the Haus Von Stoltz Kennel is Lomira Wisconsin.  Officer Seth Pionke is a certified Trainer and Handler.  The department K-9 unit was funded completed by donations reflecting the true testament of the generosity of the entire community. 

Bike Patrol

The Bicycle Patrol Unit is able to field a number of officers trained and equipped for bicycle patrol on specialized bikes with police markings and equipment. Each of these officers has a primary job responsibility separate from bicycle patrol. The officers are deployed at various times from late spring to early fall.

The Bicycle Patrol has been successfully deployed to attend to special police problems throughout Plover. This method of patrol is advantageous when compared to traditional motorized patrol or foot patrol. Bicycle patrols are faster than foot patrols, less obtrusive than motorized patrols, can go to places motorized patrols cannot while providing greater face-to-face interaction with the community.

Tactical Training House

Most patrols officers are Basic SWAT trained and undergoing CIT training, while also holding various instructor level certifications from firearms, DAAT and other police topics.   On average Plover Police Officers receive well above average annual training hours while some teach regularly at Mid State Technical College.
