Communicator. Critical Thinker. Problem Solver.

The Criminal Justice - Law Enforcement 720 Academy will provide students with the right skills to handle complex situations encountered as a criminal justice official at municipal, county, or state government levels.

To become eligible to work as an officer in the State of Wisconsin, the student must have basic policing skills. The Wisconsin Department of Justice's (WisDOJ) Law Enforcement Standards Board has established criteria. Admission is restricted to those who qualify under WisDOJ administrative rules. Upon completing the Academy, the student becomes certifiable for a period of two years from the date of completion. This makes the student eligible for formal certification as a Basic Law Enforcement Officer upon hiring by a law enforcement agency.

Work as an officer requires integrity. Candidates for the Criminal Justice - Law Enforcement 720 Academy must undergo criminal history and traffic record checks and may be required to submit fingerprints and do drug screening. All candidates will be asked to participate in a personal screening interview. See www.wilenet.org for additional information from the Law Enforcement Standards Board.
