Officer District Areas

Officers in the City of Menasha work in three patrol zones during their shifts however they are also assigned to an aldermanic district as a direct contact for those living in the district.  This provides a more personal approach in community policing.  Look below to see who is assigned to your district.  You can contact your assigned officers regarding neighborhood watch programs or other community concerns.
Please note:  Officers are not assigned to take calls in these districts.  If you need an officer to respond for a complaint or an emergency, please call the non-emergency number (920) 967-3500 or 911.
