Specialized Programs

Special programs within the Whitewater Police Department present a unique opportunity for department personnel to utilize and enhance the qualities, skill sets and characteristics they possess as individuals. In many police departments the opportunity for growth and development are available only through promotion or to long-standing senior personnel.

The Whitewater Police Department believes that individual personal strengths, intrinsic skill sets and committed dedication define the necessary traits that make up a highly dedicated and motivated team, therefore, we make special programs available to all interested personnel.
