The only changes at the Door County Sheriffs Department in January will be a new sheriff and a new Jail Lieutenant. Sheriff-elect Tammy Sternard, the current jail lieutenant, annouced in news release that all administrative staff, including Chief Deputy Patrick McCarty, who ran against Sternard in the sheriff's race, will remain in their current positions when she takes office in January.
Sternard said in the release: "Our organization has been very busy working on the transition over the past several weeks. I would like to thank Sheriff (Steve) Delarwelle for his years of service to our community and his help with the transition is greatly appreciated and is making for a smooth transition." Sternard also said she's in the process of filling the jail lieutenant position.
