For Sturgeon Bay Police Officer Derek Jennerjohn, there was never another career he wanted. Growing up in the area, Jennerjohn wanted to follow in the footsteps of a police officer that had a big impact on his life. He pursued a degree in criminal justice before heading to the police academy. To people thinking about a career in law enforcement, Jennerjohn has learned that there is a lot more to the job than writing tickets and making arrests.
Jennerjohn says Sturgeon Bay Police Chief Arleigh Porter encourages their officers to be active in the community, whether it is participating in the Bigs in Blues program with Big Brothers Big Sisters or helping out with the department’s Explorer Post 9368. This is part of an ongoing series of careers available in the community.
