New toll-free number provides quick, easy access to the entire Wisconsin State Patrol

MILWAUKEE -- If you wish to contact the Wisconsin State Patrol with questions or requests for services, you can call the new toll-free number of 1-844-847-1234 that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

In case of an emergency, you should still call 911 immediately.

    The number can also connect you with a specific Division of State Patrol Region Headquarters, the State Patrol Academy, the Division Headquarters in Madison or with individual members of the State Patrol if you know their extension.

    “The new toll-free number provides the public with more convenient access to the entire Wisconsin State Patrol,” says Colonel Brian Rahn, deputy superintendent. “In addition, the new toll-free number is part of the State Patrol’s conversion to an internet-based phone system that will produce substantial cost savings over a conventional digital system.”
