Inspiring the Next Generation of First Responders

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 WALLECA session has been cancelled. Please see the attached letter from the WALLECA Director Jim Johnson.


Why is our Wisconsin American Legion Enforcement Career Academy (WALLECA) so important?   Agencies across the state and even around the country are constantly in need of quality applicants entering the law enforcement field.  

That's why Legion Wisconsin launched WALLECA, designed to provide first-hand experiences and insight into the operation of law enforcement agencies. The program is exclusively for current Juniors and Seniors in high school who are in good academic standing. 2020 Application process closed on February 25, 2020.

WALLECA offers physical fitness training coupled with classroom instruction and hands-on training. Topics of instruction include criminal law, constitutional law, patrol procedures, criminal investigation procedures, traffic crash investigation, evidence gathering techniques, arrest techniques, taking fingerprints, testifying in court, public speaking, leadership skills, report writing, interviewing techniques, crisis intervention, use of control and firearms training.
