Door County Sheriff's Department introduces Citizen's Academy

If you have ever wondered what it is like to be a Door County Sheriff’s Deputy, your time is coming. The Door County Sheriff’s Department announced on Friday it would be hosting its first citizen’s academy beginning on October 21st. The 10-week program uses deputies and other members of the department as instructors to give Door County residents an up-close look at how it operates. It will be hands-on as it explores topics like jail operations, narcotics enforcement, use of force decision-making, and 911/dispatch procedures.


Police Standards Captain Carl Waterstreet hopes residents learn a lot from the experience.

The academy will meet every Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. except for Thanksgiving and it is free to sign-up for the first 10 people. Residents must be at least 18 years and be able to pass a background check. The program is similar to those already be used in the cities of Merrill, Madison, Wausau, and Watertown.
