The Sturgeon Bay Police Department has recently added a fourth community service officer (CSO) to its staff. Michael Bertrand, a Southern Door graduate and currently attending U.W.-Stevens Point, started his CSO position two weeks ago. Community service officers are non-sworn civilian employees that have fewer responsibilities and qualifications than other law enforcement officers. SBPD Community Service Unit Manager Michelle Snover shares the distinction between the two positions.
Bertrand says he is excited about the opportunity to work with others in the department.
Bertrand joins Riley Glish, Triston Beauchamp, and Austin Tlachac as the four current CSOs on the Sturgeon Bay Police force. You can listen to an interview with officers Bertrand, Tlachac, and Snover on the podcast page.
