A female officer on the Fond du lac police force is the recipient of a Wisconsin Association of Women Police Merit award. Officer Cammie Vandermolen received the award at the association’s
fall luncheon in Madison earlier this month. The award recognizes a female police officer who distinguishes herself by superior accomplishments or continuing long term involvement in, or leadership of projects, which make a significant contribution to public safety or to law enforcement. Officer Vandermolen serves as the advisor for the Fond du lac Police Department Explorer Scouts which is made up of 14-20 year olds who want to learn more about the law enforcement profession. This past summer officer Vandermolen and her explorer scouts put together a summer safety school for 2nd through 5th grade students at the Boys and Girls Club of Fond du lac and have established a mentoring partnership with the Boys and Girls club.
