Welcome to the City of Darlington, WI

Police Department.

We invite you to browse the many pages of this site to learn more about your hometown police department and to heighten your awareness of its capabilities. Thanks for visiting and please come back soon. Have a safe day!


The Darlington Police Department was established in 1865 for the purpose of providing law enforcement services to the residents of the City of Darlington (population 2,500). Today, the department is comprised of five full-time officers and two part-time officers who provide 24-hour police services to the city and handle over 3,000 incidents per year. The department is committed to the philosophy of problem-oriented policing whereby officers place considerable value in responses that are preventive in nature, rather than reactive, and that engage other public agencies, the community, and the private sector in addressing concerns before they become problems.

The City of Darlington Police Department is a proud Core Standards Verification Program award recipient from the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Accreditation Group.
