The Minocqua Police Department will be hosting its 4th Annual Citizens Academy.
Anyone who lives, works or plays in the Minocqua area will get the opportunity to participate in an 8 week course led by the Officers of the Minocqua Police Department.

The goal of the Minocqua Police Department Ride-Along program is to honor "ride along" requests from individuals having a legitimate interest in personally observing police patrol operations. The purpose of the program is to provide an educational experience to those desiring a career in law enforcement, to promote positive community relations, and to serve as a recruitment tool for the Minocqua Police Department.
The Ride-Along Program has established criteria to determine eligibility, and will delineate the duties and responsibilities of officers and citizens involved in the program.
To view the criteria for eligibility, please read our Ride-Along Policy.
If you are interested in participating in the Minocqua Police Department Ride-Along Program please fill out the Ride-Along Application/Waiver Form and submit it to Lieutenant Jason Benbenek. After review of the Ride-Along Application/Waiver Form, you will be contacted on whether your participation in the Ride-Along Program has been approved or denied. If you have been approved to participate in the Ride-Along Program, a date and time will be set up at that time.
