On behalf of the men and women of the Rhinelander Police Department welcome to our website. As you navigate through our website, we hope the information and resources provided are helpful.

I was sworn in as the 14th chief of Rhinelander Police Department on Tuesday, May 30, 2017. I have previously worked for the WI State Patrol and the Oneida County Sheriff's Office. I am a Rhinelander native and a true Hodag at heart. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from Upper Iowa University graduating Cum Laude. I am also an independent certified John Maxwell leadership trainer, coach, and speaker.

Whether you are a citizen of Rhinelander or a visitor to our beautiful city, we hope you have a safe and enjoyable experience.
