The Monday night swearing-in ceremony at the Algoma City Council meeting will be an official welcome home for Randy Remiker. The new Algoma Police Chief comes from the Albuquerque Police Department after serving as its deputy chief. He originally hailed from nearby Denmark, Wisconsin. A future colonel in the Army National Guard, Algoma city administrator Jeff Wiswell expects Remiker will be a good fit in the community.
Wiswell says 25 people applied for the open position when the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department opted to end its contract with the city back in August. Remiker’s first day as the city’s top cop will be January 1st, 2019.
