LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - La Crosse residents are learning about 'a day in the life' of a police officer.
The La Crosse Police Department kicked off its 8-week Citizen Police Academy Wednesday night.
The academy is a chance for residents to learn about general patrol tactics.
However, the class is more than just showing what an officer does on a day-to-day basis. Those taking part in the academy will be spending time at a shooting range, the jail, and at the dispatch center.
