Bayside Wisconsin seeking Police Chief

January 18, 2018


CHIEF OF POLICE
BAYSIDE, WISCONSIN

Chief of Police, Bayside, WI (pop. 4,400). Tucked along the western shores of Lake Michigan, Bayside is an attractive, suburban community with beautiful neighborhoods and a small-town feel. Ten miles north of downtown Milwaukee, Bayside is adjacent to Interstate 43. The Village seeks skilled public safety professionals with strong communication skills as candidates for its next Chief of Police.

Once comprised of summer cottages and farms, the Village was incorporated in 1953. Today, Bayside is 2.39 square miles, and more than 80% of property in the Village is zoned residential, with the remaining set aside for nature conservancy, commercial, and recreational use. The Village has no industrial or manufacturing uses.

The Village is a full-service municipality, and prides itself on providing excellent customer service. The department has 13 sworn positions authorized; vacancies exist and some retirements are imminent, providing the new Chief with staffing and organizational opportunities. Patrol officers and sergeants are unionized positions. In 2017, the Police Department responded to approximately 6,600 calls for service.

Dispatch services are provided by the Village to seven neighboring communities, as well as the North Shore Fire Department. The North Shore Fire Department serves seven municipalities, including Bayside.
