Police Department Mission Statement, Organizational Goals, and Organizational Values
The Platteville Police Department has been in existence since approximately 1900. However, a fire that destroyed City Hall in 1927 and another in the early 1950′s effectively destroyed most of the records from the early part of the century. Therefore, the records are very sketchy and most of the following information has been gleaned from old newspapers and personal reminiscences.
