The Waupaca Police Department reminds residents and businesses that they can help prevent crime by participating in the Wisconsin Crime Alert Network (WCAN).
WCAN is a statewide program that allows law enforcement agencies to send out targeted crime alert bulletins to businesses and the public, whenever a crime or suspect may affect citizens or their businesses. WCAN provides a rapid, cost-effective means of communication between law enforcement agencies and the community.
The alerts can be received by email, text message or fax.
To sign up for WCAN alerts, go to www.wisconsincrimealert.gov .
