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. 2022 Application process will open on January 3, 2022.
WALLECA offers physical fitness training coupled with classroom instruction and hands-on training. Topics of instruction include crime scene investigation, firearms training, descalation and arrest tactics, OWI enforcement, human trafficking, tactical response, ethics, and team building exercises.

2021 WALLECA Testimonial
I had an amazing week. I miss it so much already. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I learned so much, and I’m so grateful for not only the experience, but for each and every one of you that helped and taught us. That experience meant more to me than anyone could know. I not only got to learn more about a huge passion of mine, but I got to meet some really inspiring people. I got to meet peers that I will most likely be friends with for the rest of my life, and I found a spark inside myself that I needed to find. So thank you. So much. It truly means a lot. -Ashley
