ONALASKA, WI (WKBT) - Onalaska's Police Department is giving the community a glance into the inner workings of their everyday grind.
The Department is now accepting applications for its second annual Citizen's Police Academy. Classes begin in mid-March and run through the spring for 10 weeks.
Participants will learn about topics like crime scene investigation, defense and arrest tactics and the K-9 program. They'll also take field trips to the jail and the shooting range.
Officers say last year's academy helped bring the community closer to its police department.
"It's also just a great way to see what we do day in and day out," said Onalaska Officer Leah Myers. "Watching things on TV is one thing, and getting to know us personally is completely different."
You can sign up for the academy online on the city of Onalaska's website, under the police department tab. Forms are also available at the front desk of the department.24241138
