Sawyer County High School Students Graduate from Police Explorers Academy
High School students from several area schools graduated on Saturday, December 16, from the Sawyer County Police Explorers, a youth academy that began in September.
Students, aged 14 to 19, from Hayward, Winter, HACIL and Northern Waters schools participated in the academy that consisted of jail, dispatch, defensive tactics, vehicle contacts, emergency vehicle operations, firearms, search and rescue, dive team, K9, and SWAT trainings.
“The academy is for high school students who might be interested in a law enforcement career,” Sawyer County Sheriff’s Office deputy, Darin Jensen said. “It’s a short program, a couple of Saturdays a month, that shows them what law enforcement is all about.”
Jensen is one of three advisors to the youth academy, along with Don Semler and LCO Police officer Sean Anderson.
According to Jensen, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, State Patrol, Hayward Police and the Sawyer County Sheriff’s Office all produced instructors for the academy.
Congratulations to the youth who graduated from the Sawyer County Police Explorers Academy.
