The Rhinelander Police Department is holding a training about law enforcement for citizens. The Police Academy takes place one night a week for eight weeks. Police chief Mike Steffes says the goal is to get more people thinking like police officers.
“It’s through programs like this where citizens can really get involved in the police department and really know and understand what police officers are doing, and see life through the eyes of a police officer.”
Steffes says it also helps community members feel more comfortable with police.
