The City of Rhinelander will once again host a Citizen's Police Academy next month.
The eight week course starts March 5th and meets once a week, typically Wednesday evenings, to offer members of the community insight into the typical duties in law enforcement. In addition to learning about firearms, defensive and arrest tactics, patrol procedures, drug investigations, criminal investigations, and operating while under the influence, participants will also take part in a ride along with officers of the Rhinelander Police Department and train with the Rhinelander Fire Department.
Applicants must be at least 18, live or work in Rhinelander and must not have a criminal record. Only 12 people will be accepted, and applicants are considered on a first come, first served basis.
There is no cost to apply. Applications can be obtained in person at the Rhinelander Police Department or online at the link below.
For more information, contact Officer Chad Brown, Officer Amanda Young, or Chief Michael Steffes at the Rhinelander Police Department (715) 365-5300.
