Algoma community response impresses police chief

The level of cooperation by the public since the “Safer at Home” order was handed down last week by Governor Tony Evers has a local police chief taking note.  Algoma Police Chief Randy Remiker says his patrol officers are still responding to emergency calls and enforcing speeding violations in the city, but are not monitoring any unessential travel.  He says he has been impressed with the community’s commitment to following the restrictions imposed by the state and federal government to this point.



Chief Remiker is asking residents to make correspondence to the police via the phone if the issue is a small matter or of a non-criminal nature. The “Safer at Home” order was issued for one month and will run until at least April 24.
