Police Department reopening educational opportunity

For people who want to get an inside look at what it takes to be a police officer, they have that chance again. The Sturgeon Bay Police Department announced that they are bringing their Police Cadet program back. The program is for 14-20 year olds interested in law enforcement in which they’ll have periodic meetings, learn, and simulate situations that an officer may encounter. The cadet program was put on pause last year when schools shut down. 


Though the program is aimed at people learning more about law enforcement, it doesn’t mean they’re required to choose law enforcement as a career. Sturgeon Bay Police Department Officer Brandon Shew says it teaches skills and practices that can translate to different career fields. The cadets learn specific skills that can help in small or large agencies. Officer Shew runs the cadets, but he says he’s not the only officer who can influence.



Prospective cadets can find more information on the Sturgeon Bay Police Cadet Facebook page.
