Madison Police Department

Officer Appreciation


As a great show of support given the nationwide violent events the Madison Police Department has received a strong outpouring of appreciation for its officers who serve and protect our community.  Over the past few weeks community members have  called, sent personal notes of thanks and gratitude as well as deliveries of trays of cold cuts & rolls; an Edible Arrangement bouquet; a strawberry & whipped cream torte; boxes of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee; trays of bagels; cider donuts; bags of apples and pizzas. A petition with over 70 signatures to demonstrate ‘appreciation and support’ of the department and officers was received. The Madison Police Department and its officers wish to thank everyone for their support. 

Message from Chief Drumm to the Madison Police Department Staff:

Yesterday another tragedy struck at the law enforcement community.  Not since the September 11 attacks has policing in this country suffered such a loss.  Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims, their families and to all law enforcement personnel in this country. 

It is very difficult to prevent an incident of violence against the police community, especially when it is a tactically executed attack and by way of ambush.  As always be ever vigilant as you carry yourself through our chosen and noble profession.  I ask that you exercise caution, always be prepared and not become complacent in our day to day law enforcement duties.

I am proud to serve with you all in this profession with the Madison Police Department and most honored to serve the community we protect.
