Wisconsin Police Academies

Most basic police training in Wisconsin is provided through community colleges that are certified by the Wisconsin Department of Justice. Upon successful graduation, recruits will generally receive college credits for their academy coursework. The Milwaukee Police Department and Wisconsin State Patrol operate their own academies for newly hired officers.
