Why WALLECA?

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.
