Tuesday, August 9, 2016 had more training at the WCPA Summer Conference. We started the day with training from Eric Atkinson, Adjunct Faculty member with UW-Stout. He trained on 21st Century Community Policing and working with our communities. Later we had Dr. Christopher McFarlin from Pendleton, SC teach about Body Camera Best Practices. In the afternoon we learned about, “Drones: What Public Safety Officials Need to Know” by Capt. (ret.) Bill Bongle of the Green Bay Police Department. Our final training session included Reporting use of Force by city of Manitocwoc Staff Attorney Elizabeth Majerus.
The evening included a chance to network with some of the new chiefs throughout the state and talk about the WCPA Mentoring Program. Again, more opportunities to talk with peers around the state regarding issues each of us are dealing with; share what we are doing and learning what others are doing.
