On behalf of the Appleton Police Department I would like to thank you for visiting our website. The Appleton Police Department is one of the most innovative and professional organizations in the nation. Our employees uphold the highest standards in policing and are encouraged to creatively find ways to fight crime and solve problems. 

All our employees are fully committed to strategies designed to fulfill our mission of “Excellence in Police Service” to the community and all those we serve. We all adhere to our core values of Compassion, Integrity, and Courage. The citizens of Appleton should be as proud as I am of the amazing officers, non-sworn staff, and volunteers that all work together to keep the city a safe and welcoming community. 

We know that we can’t be successful without the support and assistance from our community. We have over 75 Neighborhood Watch groups, over 50 outstanding police volunteers, and several unique community programs and partnerships. Without the help of these people we would not be able to be as successful as we are. I encourage you to browse through the Community Programs tab on this site and somehow become involved and part of the APD family, you will be glad you did. 

It’s my hope you will find the information you are seeking within this site. If you have any other questions or comments please contact us or email me through this website to share your thoughts. Together we will continue to make Appleton one of the best cities in the country to live and play in. 

Todd L. Thomas 
Chief of Police
