Wadena Police Department

Chief's Message

I would like to personally welcome you to the Wadena Police Department's web page. Our department has seen many changes over the recent years, including personnel and technology.

With these changes come different ideas and a new direction in how law enforcement interacts with the community. We are dedicated to serving our citizens in the best way possible while keeping up with the changes of the world too.

Our office is made up of six patrol officers, one Sergeant/Investigator, one Chief, one School Resource Officer, and one Administrative Secretary/Dispatcher. Our office is open Monday - Friday, 8:00am to 4:30pm, but you can always reach an officer 24/7 by calling the office number.

With hard work, lots of smiles and a friendly face in the squad cars, you can rest assured that we will strive to do our very best for you and your family.

Thanks for visiting our site,

Naomi J. Plautz
