Police officers in the bitter cold

You’ve been told not to go outside if you don’t have to during these extreme cold conditions but police officers must be out in any weather. Officers dress in multiple layers and wear hats, gloves, snow boots, and use their cars to warm up if necessary. Patrick McCarty is the Chief Deputy for the Door County Sheriff’s Office and he says police officers mostly answer to cars in ditches and traffic accidents. McCarty added officers will check every car parked on the side of the road.



McCarty says to keep off the roads as much as possible as they may worsen as it gets even colder outside.
