Getting your law enforcement career off to a good start could begin in Sturgeon Bay before you ever enroll in the police academy. The Sturgeon Bay Police Department is highlighting its Police Cadet program and its community service officer positions when it hosts its open house on Wednesday. Both opportunities give people as young as 14 years old in the Police Cadet program and 18 years old as a community service officer real-life law enforcement experience. It is the route Officer Brandon Shew took before he officially joined the department a few years ago. He says it is a great resume builder for those looking to get into the career.
The open house to learn more about the Police Cadet program and the available community service officer positions is Wednesday night at Sturgeon Bay City Hall from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
