Full Press Release
This Summer, and especially during WI DOT “Click It or Ticket” campaign May 23 – June 5, Chenequa Police Officers will keep a sharp eye out for unbuckled motorists – not to simply write tickets, but to prevent needless tragedies. In Wisconsin, you can be stopped and cited for not wearing a seat belt. Drivers can also be cited for every unbuckled passenger in their vehicle. Be safe and be smart. Buckle up. Every trip, every time.
On behalf of the staff of the Chenequa Police Department, it is my pleasure to introduce our first annual report. The impetus for this report is a desire to communicate with our community stakeholders the actions taken by our department to preserve and improve the quality of life in our very special community.
As we move forward into 2022, our staff is focused on continuing to find new and innovative ways to provide the best possible service to our residents and the other members of the public passing through the village on a daily basis.
