Neenah Police Department talks about new cameras and expansion in Community Update
NEENAH, Wis. (WFRV) – Neenah Police Chief Aaron Olson and Community Policing Coordinator Joe Benoit joined Local 5 and talked about several topics ranging from new cameras to an expansion of the department.
Olson explained what Benoit does with the department, most of it focusing on the community. Benoit has been described as the face of the department and the bridge between the patrol and the community.
New cameras that can help identify those involved in crimes have been installed across the city. Olson says these cameras are mostly around the perimeter of the Neenah and aren’t just license plate readers. The cameras are in cities from Milwaukee to Green Bay.
The department also has a $5.5 million expansion that will be a new training center. Olson said there will be a shooting range, practice rooms, conference rooms and more. This will allow the department to train in Neenah instead of traveling out of the region.
Olson also provided more information about the case involving puppies that were left behind. He says everyone involved is being questioned and they will hold the person accountable. Fees could be a possibility.
