Criminal Justice Open House Cookout June 15

June 5, 2018

Anyone curious about the training it takes for a career in law enforcement is invited to the Nicolet College Criminal Justice Open House Cookout from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Friday, June 15, at the Birchwoods Center on the Rhinelander Campus.

“This is for individuals considering a career in law enforcement as well as members of the general public who are curious about the program and the training we provide,” said Nicolet Criminal Justice Service Specialist Tim Gerdmann.

At the free event individuals will have the opportunity to participate in actual hands-on training scenarios pulled straight from Nicolet’s Criminal Justice curriculum. This will include engaging an uncooperative suspect on the college’s computerized use-of-force simulator and participating in mock traffic stops with the Nicolet squad car.

Along with instructors from the college’s Criminal Justice program, current students, graduates, and officials from local law enforcement agencies will be on hand to talk about and answer questions about careers in law enforcement.

All graduates from Citizen’s Academies conducted by police departments in Rhinelander and Minocqua are also invited to attend the open house and cookout.

Nicolet offers several college credentials in Criminal Justice. These include the one-year Corrections Specialist technical diploma; a pair of two-year associate’s degrees, one for Criminal Justice Correctional Officer and the other in Criminal Justice Studies; and the 720-hour Law Enforcement Academy, which is required to work as a sheriff’s deputy or police officer in Wisconsin.

For more information, call (715) 365-4641 or 1-800-544-3039, ext. 4641; TTY 1-800-947-3529 or 711 relay.
