Door County high school students looking at a career in law enforcement have an opportunity in Sturgeon Bay. For students ages 14-20, Sturgeon Bay Police Explorer Post 9368 gives them hands-on experience on what it takes to get into the field. Post members participate in training meetings at least twice a month and have an opportunity to work at special events, go on ride alongs, and put their knowledge on display at various law enforcement conferences. It was his experience with a Police Explorer post in the Appleton area that got Sturgeon Bay Officer Brandon Shew into the field. After close to a decade as a member and now as the lead advisor for Post 9368, Shew hopes other youths take advantage.
Sturgeon Bay Police Explorer Post 9368 will host an open house on January 15th inside the department’s headquarters beginning at 5 p.m.
