Sturgeon Bay Police encountering more impaired drivers

Two arrests this past weekend in Sturgeon Bay for impaired driving have local law enforcement emphasizing again zero-tolerance when it comes to drunk or drugged driving.  Sturgeon Bay Police Captain Dan Brinkman says the department made a total of 10 OWI arrests in September.  He says the idea of posting names and photos of those arrested and charged with a felony on social media is not designed as public shaming, but rather addressing the public’s right to know.



Captain Brinkman will be holding a “Coffee with a Cop” at 7 am this Wednesday in Sturgeon Bay at Glas Coffeehouse.  He says he welcomes public input and discussion on the topic.  You can read the Sturgeon Bay Police Department news release detailing the two incidents from this past weekend below.
