Green Bay Police using interns to handle thousands of minor cases

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Police Department is using interns to handle what could be over 10,000 minor cases in the New Year.

The idea is to free up the sworn officers for more serious crimes.

The interns are called CSI’s, or Community Service Interns. They’re responding to calls that involve vandalism, theft, and parking complaints.

The interns do not have guns, but they can get armed back-ups if they have to.

Officials say the interns also patrol Green Bay’s parks – and they work with neighborhood groups.

One of the interns, Riley Peterson, says it gives him valuable experience as he trains to become a full-fledged police officer.
