As our agency motto says, we are “Focused”. Fort PD is a department filled with men and women that are Community Focused, Team Focused, and Safety Focused. We strive to be proactive through forward-thinking police work. Being a part of our community instead of a police force that stands over the community is how we have achieved strong community bonds that help Fort Atkinson earn annual recognition as one of Wisconsin’s safest cities.
