Old Daily Tribune office put to work by Wisconsin Rapids Police Department

The Wisconsin Rapids Police Department plans on holding training exercises in the old Daily Tribune building on a temporary basis. As Incourage continues the process of finding a new use for the iconic downtown building, authorities soon will use it to train a special response team and K-9 unit, and teach patrol officers how to clear a building.

Incourage also reports that they will offer public tours of the building while it’s vacant – to increase awareness about the opportunity that the building holds and the need for resident input about the building’s future use. Tours may begin in April with details to be announced in the coming weeks.
