Summary[edit]

Menomonie, unsurprisingly, does not have a lot of crime. However, that doesn’t mean that this town doesn’t have murder or a robbery in it’s history. Just this year there was a non-fatal stabbing after a hateful argument between a white man and a black man. Menomonie has a police department with 27 officers that apparently answer about 16,000 calls a year. Perhaps the worst crime that I found was the torture killing of a 16-year old Muslim boy in 1995 by his cousins.[1]

There have been a few robberies in the history of Menomonie. The Kraft State Bank was robbed in 1931 on October 20th. What is a lot more common though is theft and burglary.
