The Auxiliary Police is comprised of non-sworn officers who dedicate their time and energy to provide law enforcement services to the community with courtesy and honor. Their focus is on helping the Oshkosh Police Department perform a variety of routine functions that require additional staffing. Auxiliary officers work on a volunteer basis and provide valuable support and assistance to the sworn officers of the Oshkosh Police Department in an efficient and effective manner. Auxiliary officers can be found assisting with crowd and traffic control at special events, responding to emergency situations, providing assistance at our annual Gifts From the Heart Program, and participating in our first ever National Night Out event held on August 7, 2007.
As part of the Police Auxiliary traffic control efforts, the Speed Awareness Program was implemented. This program primarily places speed boards in school zones to aid crossing guards and to inform motorists of their speed as they travel through school zones. If you would like to request the speed board/radar trailer to be placed in your neighborhood to assist with speed awareness, please contact Sergeant Matt Kroening.
