​​​​Mount Horeb Police Department

Starting in August 2018, E. Front Street, between Third Street and Second Street, will sporadically be closed due to road construction.   There no longer are any parking stalls available directly in front of the building.  Please use the parking lot entrance to the Evangelical Lutheran Church off of S. Fourth Street and utilize the church's parking lot if you need to visit our building in person.  Other parking options are individual stalls along Main Street and the parking lot of the Chamber of Commerce located at 300 E. Main Street.

Project Child Safe is a nonprofit organization that promotes firearm safety in the home by using trigger locks.  They have once again generously provided our department with gun locks for you to help protect your loved ones.

According to the FBI and Centers for Disease Control, more preschoolers are dying where, in most incidents, children are finding their parent’s guns.

Talk to children about firearm safety.  Secure guns unloaded and secure the ammunition somewhere else. 

Stop by the police department Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to obtain your free gun locks.

What's going on around town

Front street road construction

This line is staffed daily 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

After hours, leave a voicemail message with:

  • Your first and last name (please spell out)
  • Your callback number with area code
  • Deer location (road name, township, county)
  • Identify deer as buck, doe or fawn

By leaving a voicemail message, you are authorized by the DNR to take possession of the car-killed carcass.  You are required to take the WHOLE CARCASS, not just the head or other desired parts.

A DNR dispatcher will call you the next morning for additional information.  If you do not receive a call back by noon the following day, please call again to verify your voicemail was received.


Construction continues on the new Public Safety Building that will house both the Mt. Horeb Fire Department and Mt. Horeb Police Department.  Move-in is anticipated in the fall of 2018.  For more information on the project, click here.
