Could all of the law enforcement in the county be consolidated into one county-wide police department?
No. While municipalities are free to provide their own police department, or contract for police services from another municipality or the county, the Sheriff is a constitutionally mandated office. However, all of the law enforcement services across the county could be consolidated under the sheriff's office. Portage County only has two municipalities that provide their own police services, the City of Stevens Point and the Village of Plover. The remaining 96+% of the County is already under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Sheriff's office.
Does the Sheriff's Office enforce municipal ordinances?
No. The Sheriff's Office enforces county ordinances and state law. That is unless the municipality has contracted with the Sheriff's Office for law enforcement.
Do county ordinances apply within my municipality?
Yes, with only a very few exceptions. All county ordinances are enforceable county-wide, except where the statute provides for local ordinances to preclude county ordinance enforcement (e.g. fireworks, solicitors permits). Otherwise, even if a city, village, or town has their own ordinances, the county ordinances still apply.
What is the jurisdiction of the Sheriff's Office?
The Sheriff's Office exercises jurisdiction throughout the County, including within municipal boundaries and in places that have their own police departments. The Sheriff and his deputies also exercise their authority state-wide under certain circumstances, even when outside of their home county.
