Community Tips & Concerns

Did you know that citizens in the community are considered "the eyes and ears" for the police? 

Tip Line

Police officers cannot be everywhere at any given time, so as a result, police rely on citizens to advise them of suspicious situations or activity they observe. For this purpose, a tip line has been created at the Poynette Police Department where citizens can report anything from criminal activity to noise or junk ordinance issues.


At your request, the source for information you provide can remain anonymous.

Using the Tip Line

Citizens need only contact the Police Department by phone at 608-635-2588 or they can even email the Police Department if they prefer.

Emergencies/Crimes In Progress

For all emergencies or crimes in progress, call 911.

For More Information

For more information or to answer any questions or concerns, please contact Sarah Roche, the Police Administrative Assistant of the Poynette Police Department at 608-635-2122, ext. 218 during the normal business hours of the department.
