Working on Christmas is just like working a normal day for one Sturgeon Bay police officer. Officer Chad Mielke worked on Christmas Day and did all his normal duties. The SBPD was operating normally with as minimal staff as possible. Officer Mielke says Christmas Day is quieter when it comes to crime. Mielke explained that Christmas is not so jolly and festive for some families and that police need to handle domestic situations.
Officer Mielke says he does not mind working on Christmas and it’s part of the job of a police officer to work holidays a lot of people have off.
