The City of Algoma will have a new police chief starting in June. David Allen will be sworn into office on Monday, June 5th and replace Randy Remiker who is retiring after joining the Algoma Police Department as its chief in 2018.
Allen comes to Algoma with over 20 years of experience as a Department of Natural Resources Conservation Warden, many of which was in Kewaunee County. Remiker resigned as the chief back in March and will remain in the Algoma area as he takes on additional duties in the New Mexico National Guard after being promoted to Brigadier General earlier this year.
Algoma City Administrator Matt Murphy says the swearing-in ceremony for Allen will take place at City Hall prior to the Council meeting at 6:00 p.m. next Monday.
