Police Support Services

Caledonia Police Support Services is located at the Village police department and is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm except holidays, providing records request and administrative inquiries. The lobby phone located in the police department provides 24 hour contact directly to the Racine County Communications Center for police response.

Communications (Dispatch)

The Caledonia Police Department joined with many municipalities to form the Racine County Communications Center located in Ives Grove. The RCCC provides communications and dispatch services for most Racine County police and fire departments. Information sharing is the mission-critical requirement to achieve public safety, incident management, crime investigations, homeland security, protect the American public, and to defend against terrorism. Therefore, most Department squads are additionally outfitted with mobile computers which serve law enforcement as additional tools in the safest and most up to date communications and information sharing between the Dispatchers and Officers.
