A long-time Sturgeon Bay Police Chief is retiring as the Chief of Police in Waterloo, Iowa. Dan Trelka, who was a member of the Sturgeon Bay Police Department from 1992-2010, is retiring this Friday as the Waterloo Police Chief. Trelka says he still has connections in Sturgeon Bay and misses the people of Door County the most.
Trelka plans to stay involved in law enforcement as he will run for the Blackhawk County Sheriff’s seat in November of 2020. He currently has been serving on the Board of Supervisors the past year. Crime has fallen over 30 percent during Trelka’s time as police chief in Waterloo the past ten years.
