The Sturgeon Bay Police Cadets were in Ashwaubenon Saturday to do training in preparation for the 2020 Wisconsin Law Enforcement Education Advocates Association competition next month. Last year, the cadets finished in first place out of 33 teams in the hostage negotiation scenario. There are new challenges for 2020 with a strong emphasis on conflict resolution. Officer Brandon Shew, advisor for the Cadets, was in the program himself as a teenager in Appleton. He says it is a first step toward a career in law enforcement.
Six other departments had cadets training Saturday at the public safety facilities at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College’s Green Bay campus.
