Extra funding for police gear tabled for now

Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says he wouldn’t be surprised if Monday’s resolution providing $10,000 for police protective equipment comes back up in the future. The Door County Finance Committee split on the proposal. Passage requires two-thirds to vote yes, so the measure failed. Pabich was at the meeting, and he termed the lengthy discussion between community groups like Black Lives Matter Door County, elected officials, and law enforcement as positive. Police requested the equipment in case they were asked to provide support to other law enforcement agencies in the state, something that is not unheard of, but rare.

 


Pabich says that much of the tension on the issue pertains to the emotional reaction that protective helmets and shields evoke.
