What a conference!

I am sure that I can speak for the rest of the board and membership…this was a great conference!  Sounds like the jackets were a hit and we set a new record for raffle sales!  The networking was great and it seems like some new contacts and friendships were forged.

Don’t forget to complete the evaluation, those really go a long way for planning these conferences and other one day training’s.

Lots of training!

Have you checked out our Training page?!  Lots of new opportunities, many of which are pretty nominal or FREE!  We just added two classes, one on ALICE and the other on setting up a Child Abduction Response Team through AMBER.

CONFERENCE UPDATE!  – We are looking at getting WCPPA jackets for all attendees this year!  If you plan on attending, get your registration in as we need your coat size.  If you haven’t gotten approval yet but plan on attending – email your coat size to Jason ASAP!  


Green Bay Packer cards

2012packerpolice1With the OTA’s occurring the past couple of weeks, football is on the mind of our members up in Ashwaubenon!  Terry and Brian want to remind everyone to get in your orders for Packer cards!  The Green Bay Packer organization has been partnering with law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin for over 20 years through this great program.  In fact – to the best of our knowledge, this is the only such program in the league!


Unique approach to thefts from vehicles

It seems that a good majority of the thefts in Wisconsin are to property that is left unsecured.

 With the car doors are left unlocked and the garage doors left open all night long it really makes it pretty easy for these ne’er do wells to succeed!  Two Rivers Police Department has a unique approach in raising awareness to our forgetfulness.  Check out the following story courtesy of WFRVTV – Green Bay.

TWO RIVERS, Wisc. (WFRV) It’s a pilot program aimed at crimes of opportunity.

A vehicle check program is now underway through the Two Rivers Police Department. The project is aimed at preventing vehicle thefts and break-ins.

For the next few weeks, Explorers through the PD will visually inspect cars parked on public streets and parking lots during the overnight hours. They’ll be looking for unlocked doors and valuables left out in the open.

A report card will be filled out, notifying the vehicle owner of any security issues.

Local 5’s Wendy Fleury tells us more about the program. Click here to see her report.
