Nineteen students are currently working their way through the Nicolet College Law Enforcement Recruit Academy, certifying each to work in law enforcement agencies in the state of Wisconsin.
Students are learning and practicing arrest and handcuffing techniques.
The 13-week, 520-hour program is run in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Justice. Instruction includes lectures and hands-on training that covers policing in America, tactical skills, patrol procedures, investigations and emergency medical response for law enforcement.
Specialized skills such as emergency vehicle operation, firearms, professional communications, and defense tactics are also taught.
The recruits will graduate in late August.
