Black Earth Police Department

Leaving town? We will be happy to check on your property while out.  Fill out the form below and turn it in to us for scheduling.

The Black Earth Police Department is in the Municipal Building at 1210 Mills Street. The Village of Black Earth currently contracts with the Dane County Sheriff's Office for law enforcement services. To reach a Black Earth Police Officer please call 608-767-4904. If you are in need of an officer when a Black Earth Officer is not available, please call 608-266-4948.  


One message at just the right moment can change someone’s entire life, perspective, attitude, well-being…And we want to be a part of it!  The Dane County Sheriff’s Office Black Earth and Mazomanie Deputies have painted rocks and written words that we hope to touch, inspire, or connect with people. 

More information can be found on the Black Earth Police Department page.  Watch both police departments’ Facebook pages for pictures of the people who find the rocks. We chose words that we felt fit with The Kindness Rocks Project SM. Visit their website at

****SCAM ALERT****

A Mazomanie resident received a phone call from someone claiming to be with the Black Earth Police Department. What made the phone call seem legitimate was the fact that caller ID showed the actual Black Earth Police Department phone number, (608)767-4904. The resident was told there was a warrant for his arrest and that he needed to call a different number to arrange a payment of $3000 or he would be arrested.

The phone call did not come from the Black Earth Police Department. The scammers were able to clone the phone number, making it look like the call was coming from the police department. Luckily the Mazo resident, though shaken up, knew to call and verify with local police rather than make that payment.
