Chippewa Falls Police Officers to start working 12-hour shifts

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU)--Officers with the Chippewa Falls Police Department will soon start working 12-hour shifts instead of eight.

Police Chief Wendy Stelter says it's not because the system before wasn't working, but says this way, officers can have every other weekend off. She says many 24-hour places of work, like hospitals, have been doing shifts this way and officers thought it would be good to do so as well.

The change is expected to start July 1st.
