The Sturgeon Bay Police Department is helping local technical college students get a jump in their criminal justice programs. With the Community Service Officer program, Officer Chad Mielke says the students go through a mini-field training program to learn the layout of the city and the department policies, then get hands on police experience.
Right now the department has four Community Service Officers who work part time.
During the winter Mielke says the shifts are more sporadic, but they keep a few Community Service Officers around.
