Public Invited to Emergency Services Citizen’s Academy
City Times Staff
Citizens are invited to experience all that goes into their local emergency services.
The public is invited to the 2015 Fall Emergency Services Citizen’s Academy. The Portage County Sheriff’s Office, Stevens Point Police Department, Plover Police Department, and Stevens Point Fire Department are hosting an academy to help provide our citizen’s the opportunity to experience what our law enforcement officers and firefighters do every day.
The academy will consist of a basic law enforcement and fire/rescue overview with tours and explanations of our services. The participants will also have the opportunity to participate in firearms familiarization, EVOC (Emergency Vehicle Operations Course), arrest tactics, among other police and fire related training.
Contact Deputy Megann Nowinsky, Safety Officer with Portage County Sheriff’s Office, via email if interested in attending this academy. The course will run every Tuesday from 6-9 PM, with an occasional Saturday training.
The academy,which is free of charge, begins September 8 and will conclude with a graduation on November 10.
We will be limiting our class to 20 people. All applicants are subject to a background and criminal history check to ensure the integrity of our program.
Those interested in participating should contact Nowinsky at (715)-346-1425 or [email protected] by August 26th for consideration.
