Aegis Corporation Hosts 6th Annual A.L.E.R.T. Law Enforcement Challenge

Departments from Around the State Participated in 2017 Event

As administrator of the Wisconsin County Mutual Insurance Corporation and Community Insurance Corporation, Aegis Corporation staff host hundreds of important risk management training sessions and events throughout the state every year. One that stands out involves Wisconsin law enforcement professionals, who put their lives on the line every day to protect our communities.  

On October 4, 2017, close to 30 member departments from around the state gathered for the County Mutual and Community Insurance Corporation's 6th Annual Advanced Law Enforcement Risk Training (A.L.E.R.T.) Law Enforcement Challenge. The event was held at the Portage County Sheriff's Department Rifle Range in Stevens Point.

“Our law enforcement officers face dangerous and potentially deadly situations every day on the job,” said John A. Dirkse, Executive Vice President of Aegis Corporation, which administers the County Mutual and Community Insurance Corporation. “This year's challenge once again was created by past participants, with a course that was realistic and difficult with situations officers could face on the streets."

The 2017 event involved a timed physical and shooting skills challenge. The course was created by previous years participants and included running, dragging a 120-pound dummy, shooting a rifle from a prone position and firing handguns standing from a barricaded position.

The A.L.E.R.T. Law Enforcement challenge was FREE to member law enforcement departments of the County Mutual and Community Insurance Corporation. In addition, sheriffs, chief deputies, firearms training officers, and law enforcement committee members, as well as chiefs, assistant chiefs, training officers and public safety committee/commission members were in attendance.

“It is an honor to once again host this event with Wisconsin's law enforcement community,” said Bruce Scott of Aegis Corporation, a former City of Milwaukee police officer who now operates the A.L.E.R.T. program for the County Mutual and Community Insurance Corporation. “We look forward to gathering in 2018 to once again have our members compete, network and hopefully bring home a prize to their department.”
