Starting next week, when you see Sturgeon Bay Police Department Captain Dan Brinkman, you’ll be looking at the department’s new Assistant Chief. After spending the past couple of months working on a staff structure change, dissolving the Lieutenant position and creating an Assistant Chief of Police position for the Sturgeon Bay Police Department, they chose Captain Brinkman for the new role. Sturgeon Bay Chief of Police Clint Henry says you can be assured the hire was made objectively.
The structure change was in an effort to be more in line with comparable police departments. With the change the department will have to fill the Police Captain role. Sergeant Chad Hougaard and Sergeant Jason Albertson are among candidates.
