POLICE EXPLORER POST
Explorer Post #2301 attended the State of Wisconsin Explorer Academy at Volk Field in early August. During the annual event, the Explorers participate in various law enforcement skill building activities and job specific training. Some of the topics included: OWI/Drug Detection, Firearms, Defense & Arrest Tactics, Traffic Stops, Crime Scene Investigations and Domestic Abuse Investigations. The lessons they learned were reinforced with roll-play scenarios.
The Monroe Explorer Police Post was formed in cooperation with the Boy Scouts of America, and has been meeting monthly for law enforcement orientation and training. Interested persons between the ages of 14-20 years are encouraged to join. If you would like more to know more about the Monroe Police Department Explorer Program, the Post Advisor, Officer Joshua Heer may be contacted, or for general information on Exploring, visit the Learning for Life site .
The Monroe Police Department is now using electronic traffic citation and collision reporting system. The system includes forms for crash reporting, warning citations, Uniform Traffic Citation, incident reporting, commercial motor vehicle inspections and operating while intoxicated reporting. Common data can be shared among these forms making it easier for law enforcement officers to do their jobs faster and increase the accuracy of related data.
The system, named Badger TraCS, is capable of incorporating other technologies such as bar code scanners, digital cameras, wireless communications, global positioning systems (GPS), mobile printers and pen based computers. The automated reporting improves the accuracy, timeliness and ease with which incident data is collected and made available for analysis.
