Former Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune building to serve as police training grounds

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (WSAU) - The Wisconsin Rapids police department is putting the former Daily Tribune building back to work thanks to the help of a local organization.

The Incourage Community Foundation announced this week that they're offering use of the building as a training site for the Police department. Sergeant Mike Potocki says officer training like this is crucial. "We're looking for access to train special response, K9 and other scenarios."

Potocki says experience in actual buildings as opposed to mockups at locations like the local technical colleges offers hands-on experience. "Every building is different, different staircases and architecture, and the variety is nice to have."

Those training sessions will start later this year.
