Welcome to the Waupaca Police Department

On July 17, 2007, the Waupaca Police Department became the 101st State Agency to take the Law Enforcement Oath of Honor.

The Oath of Honor provides a means for law enforcement to demonstrate to their communities that they adhere to the highest of ethical standards. The Oath of Honor campaign is entirely voluntary in nature and should only be participated in by those wishing to demonstrate this important commitment. The Waupaca Police Department has been successful in having all 100 percent of our sworn and non-sworn members voluntarily take the Oath of Honor and then sign a large certificate which will be on public display in our newly remodeled policed department.
