The Sturgeon Bay Police Department’s Cadet program has had some huge successes in recent years. At the 2019 Wisconsin Law Enforcement Education Advocates Conference, the team took first place in the hostage negotiation scenario. Earlier this month at the 2020 conference, Team Leader Triston Beauchamp was named Cadet of the Year. Officer Brandon Shew, cadet supervisor, is looking to keep the momentum going.
The cadet program is the first step towards a career in law enforcement for high school students in the area.
