As Committed Partners with Law Enforcement, Community Hosts Successful 2021 A.L.E.R.T. Law Enforcement Challenge

Community Insurance Corporation and the Wisconsin County Mutual Insurance Corporation held their 2021 Advanced Law Enforcement Risk Training (A.L.E.R.T.) Law Enforcement Challenge October 6 in Portage County.


“In our state and across the nation, law enforcement personnel put their lives on the line every day to ensure our communities and citizens are protected and thriving,” said John Dirkse, President of Aegis, a Charles Taylor Company. “We are proud to continue to partner with member law enforcement departments to help them do their job as safely as possible.  The A.L.E.R.T. Law Enforcement Challenge is just one training tool we use to keep them prepared for what they might face on a daily basis.”

Close to 20 member departments participated in the 10th annual event, which was held at the Portage County Sheriff's Department Rifle Range.  This year included a presentation on managing stress and addressing PTSD on the job, as well as a challenge course that involved physical and technical challenges.
