The Kronenwetter Police Department was established in 2004 in response to a fast-growing population and the increasing need for law enforcement services in the village. Today, the department has an authorized strength of eight full time officers, four part time officers, and a full time police clerk. Included in the eight full time officers is a Patrol Lieutenant and the Chief of Police.
We patrol a large village of 52 square miles with a population of 7,826 citizens. Our village is part of the Wausau metropolitan statistical area, yet we maintain a "bedroom community" feel.
We are a 24/7 department and you can reach our office during business hours (Monday through Friday) at 715-693-4215. After hours, on weekends or if you need immediate assistance, please call the Marathon County Sheriff's Office at 715-261-1200 and they will send our officer to assist you.
