Law enforcement explains following their "Safer at Home" orders

A joint social media post by the top law enforcement officers in Door County clarified how they are enforcing the "Safer at Home Order" instilled by Governor Tony Evers last month. Sheriff Tammy Sternard, Sturgeon Bay Police Chief Arleigh Porter, and Door County District Attorney Colleen Nordin shared the post on Thursday morning on Facebook, which addressed the frequently asked questions their departments are receiving. Here are two of the answers given.  Law enforcement cannot prevent people from traveling into Door County by setting up checkpoints or closing borders. Officers cannot pull over a vehicle only because it has out of state license plates. Law enforcement must have reasonable suspicion to pull over any vehicle. The Safer at Home Order specifically allows travel to return to a place of residence from outside the county, including summer homes or second residences.
