The Kaukauna Police Department is increasing efforts in the
enforcement of bicycle laws.
As we encounter more children on the road, we find that they
don't understand the basic laws that govern bicycles. We are
starting with bicycle safety schools. We are notifying parents of
children warned for violating bicycle laws.
We have been promoting helmets and rewarding children that have
been following safety rules.
New Bicycle Ordinance
7.11(8)(a)(b) This City ordinance prohibits older children and
adults from operating a bicycle on any sidewalk. No person over the
age of 13 may ride on the sidewalk unless accompanying a bicycle
rider who is under 13 or is a newspaper carrier in the performance
It is an ordinance requirement to get a bike license for your
bicycle. You can put a license on a new or used bike.
You can get a license at the Kaukauna Police Department for
$2.00. You will need the serial number on the bottom of the bike,
along with the full description.
If your bike is ever lost or stolen and we recover the bike, we
will call the owner if it is licensed.
If it is not licensed, we will keep it in evidence for 90 days.
If no one claims the bike, it is put into the bike auction held in
Child Identification Kits
The Kaukauna Police Department has a Child Identification program
which includes a Child ID Kit.
These kits have played an integral part in the recovery and
identification of missing children.

address, hair color, eye color, height,etc.) blood type, a DNA
sample (a strand of hair with root) and an ink pad to take
Fingerprint Kits are available at the Kaukauna Police Department
during lobby hours 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
Neighborhood Watch and Business Watch are programs to assist the
prevention of crime and lead to the apprehension of criminals. The
design of these programs is to train individuals in the detection
and prevention of crime.
The areas include home and business security, identification of
suspicious activity, and proper methods of reporting crime.
Most people believe that a Neighborhood Watch Program would take
up a lot of their time and consist of many responsibilities. This
is not true. We try to make the program fun and educational. We
would like you to attend a minimum of two functions a year so that
you get to know your neighbors and stay in touch with them.
If you are interested in starting a Neighborhood Watch Group or
have any questions, please contact the Kaukauna Police Department
at 920-766-6333, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
