Sheriff Frank Tomlanovich




With over 600 miles of groomed trails throughout Vilas County, the Vilas County Sheriff's Department has maintained a snowmobile patrol program to promote safety, provide assistance, and enforce state and local laws. The snowmobile program is a subsidized program through the Department of Natural Resources.

The snowmobile patrol program is a volunteer program, in addition to the officer's normal duties, that enables officers to patrol the trails at all hours. This allows the officers patrolling to enforce the violations that occur in the county to reduce the number of snowmobile fatalities. This is done by working with the Wisconsin DNR and US Forest Service when needed.

The Vilas County Sheriff's Department urges you to drive responsibly and not drink and drive. Remember, the laws have recently changed to .08%.
