Anderson completes chief training in Madison

Chief Edward Anderson of the Lake Nebagamon Police Department recently completed the New Chiefs Training Seminar.

The training is sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Training and Standards Bureau and is held annually in Madison. Thirty-six Wisconsin law enforcement chief executives attended this year's program.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen addressed participants and congratulated each attendee.

"At the Department of Justice, the theme is 'we exist to assist.' This annual seminar demonstrates and strengthens our commitment to our local partners in law enforcement in creating safer communities across Wisconsin," Van Hollen said.

Leadership, budgeting, recruitment, labor and community relations were among the topics covered during the week-long session.

Participants also were briefed on the state and federal resources available to assist local law enforcement agencies.

Anderson retired from the Douglas County Sheriff's Department on Sept 2 after 33 years of service. He has been chief in Lake Nebagamon since Oct. 5.
