The Wisconsin Dells Police Department was established in the year 1868. At that time the town was known as Kilbourn City and the first elected Marshal in charge of Law Enforcement for the city was Marshal George A. Boyd. Kilbourn City grew with the introduction of the railroad and eventually in 1931 was renamed as the city of 'Wisconsin Dells'.
