The Plover Police Department was established in 1975 with the hiring of its first Police Chief, and in 1980, moved from a one-room office into new quarters in the present day Municipal Center. At that time the department consisted of the Police Chief and three patrol officers. The present day police department is located in an addition built in 1993 on the south end of the Municipal center.

Dwayne D. Wierzba was appointed Chief of Police in 2006-2014. Dan Ault was appointed Police Chief in 2015 and leads the department, which consists of a Lieutenant, two Sergeants, two Detectives, a Community Service Officer, twelve fulltime officers, and one reserve officer. An Office Manager, one Office Assistant and a Court Liaison comprise the civilian staff. The department provides services 24 hours per day, with office hours of 7:00AM to 5:00PM, Monday thru Friday.

The Plover Police and Fire Commission oversee the operations of the police department. Formed in 1986 to comply with State law, the Commission consists of five Village residents that are appointed by the Village President.

The police mission revolves around the necessity of maintaining social order. To achieve this goal, the department combines its human resources with the newest technology. The Village is patrolled by five marked, uniform squad cars, two unmarked cars and an administrative vehicle employed for various community-oriented projects. Weather permitting, the Department also adds bicycle patrols to expand visibility and patrol capabilities.

The Department is continually upgrading procedures to deliver service to the community. New in 2001 is a Police Department Web Page, which includes several interactive pages dealing with Crime Stoppers, Most Wanted, Lost & Found and Safety Tips. The pages include Frequently Asked Questions and Ordinances to provide information to the public.

The Police Department has a firm commitment to provide the best services to all citizens, from children to the elderly. Officers make regular visits to our local schools, providing safety presentations and at times just to promote a positive attitude among our children by handing out baseball and football cards. The Department also participates in the Portage County Triad program, which provides crime prevention, personal protection and other information and services to our elderly.

The Police Department web page was initiated in 2001 to provide information to the public about department operations and activities. In 2003 the Department received a Locater computer system through a grant sponsored by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. This computer and software allows the department near instant contact with a network of justice agencies across the United States for the purpose of receiving and sending information on missing children. The system can print a poster, and using email, disseminate anywhere in the country to provide information on missing children or persons or other pertinent crime information. In 2005 the department added in-car Mobil Data Computers, allowing access to information previously available only in the offices
