You Can Support PEOs Who Help Keep Madison Safe!

In addition to parking enforcement duties these officers help our community by finding and locating stolen vehicles; alerting dispatch and officers to wanted suspects and missing persons; and assisting the homeless, tourists and residents downtown and throughout the city.

PEOs are embedded within the Madison Police Department because at times their jobs can be stressful and sometimes even dangerous.
