You will see two new police officers patrolling the streets of Algoma this week. Zachary VanVonderen and Ann Behnke have joined the Algoma Police Department after being officially sworn into their positions. Police Chief Randy Remiker says adding two young officers to the force is great news for the department.
Behnke completed 720 hours at NWTC’s police academy the first five months of this year and will start on-the-job training with other patrol officers for the next six weeks. She explains why she pursued a career in law enforcement.
Behnke and VanVonderen both live in the Green Bay area and will now protect and serve the Algoma community after taking the oath of office.
