Chief's Welcome

Welcome to the City of Kiel Police Department’s website.

The City of Kiel is a beautiful community located in both Manitowoc and Calumet Counties with a population of just over 3,700 people. Kiel has a long standing tradition of having its citizens experience a high quality of life and the community prides itself on its cleanliness and community support for its citizens.

As sworn officers we are responsible for providing law enforcement services in the city and our staff works hard to maintain a harmonious relationship with our citizens, our businesses, visitors, and both our public and private schools to ensure that our community continues to enjoy a nice quality of life.

On our website you will find information about our police department; including information about our staff, department statistics, our community relations programs, our equipment, department news, and more. You will also find various links to other areas of interest including a link to sites with information about the City of Kiel.

We’ve come a long way in the past five years and our future looks even brighter.  Beginning in 2011, our police department implemented a 5 year plan developed to enhance nearly every aspect of our profession.

The plan includes continued policy development and education including written testing procedures for our officers of the primary policies we work under.  The plan also includes significant increases in our police department training, including specialization training in areas such as evidence/photography and more.  The plan also focuses on our goal to continue to build on our past successes in public relations.  Traditionally, "public relations" was held out for special events and for only specific members of an organization.  Our new motto is "Every officer.  Every day.  Every Call."

I sincerely welcome any comments, suggestions, or questions about our police department or this website. You can contact me directly at or at 920-894-2211 (Option 3)

Enjoy your visit.
