News Release

From October 6th through October 8th, 2020, a team of assessors from the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group (WILEAG), came to the Milton Police Department to examine all aspects of the department’s policy and procedures, management, operation, and support service. WILEAG accreditation is a voluntary process available to Wisconsin policing agencies. To be accredited, more than 200 specific standards must be reflected both in the policy and the practice of the organization throughout a three year assessment period. Following their visit, the assessors delivered a report to the WILEAG Board for their review and consideration.

On November 9, 2020, the WILEAG Board met and unanimously voted to grant accreditation status to the Milton Police Department for a three year term, expiring on November 9, 2023. This is the department’s second WILEAG reaccreditation. The department first received accreditation in 2014 and was reaccredited in 2017.

I remain tremendously proud of the men and women in this department. It is their work throughout a three year accreditation period that has once again been recognized. I would like to specifically thank our accreditation manager, Detective Ryan Justice, for his work and dedication monitoring our compliance with the standards.

During a time of intense focus on policing in this country, it is important to achieve public trust. Having an independent review body confirm our compliance with our profession’s best practices can help to maintain that trust. We will remain committed to excellence during this next three year cycle and will welcome our next assessment in the fall of 2023.

Scott Marquardt
Chief of Police
