La Crosse's Assistant Police Chief will represent
the city on a national level....
Assistant Chief Rob Abraham of the la crosse police
department has been named chair of the policy board
for the GREAT program.
or Gang Resistance and Education Training gives officers
the resources to teach kids why they should stay away
La Crosse is one of only four training hubs in the
and local officers were able to reach more than 900
students last year.
Not only is it a great program as far as teaching
some life skills, but it's also a really good community
policing program for officers to intearct positively
with children in schools.
Abraham told us his first goal is to find federal
funding to sustain the program.
