David Allen reentered his law enforcement career as the new Algoma police chief six weeks ago and is adjusting to the new challenges that go along with it. Having started his new position on June 6th in replacing Randy Remiker who retired, Allen says his biggest challenge so far personally has been the computer work and dealing with a shortage in staffing which is preventing him from his goal of getting out into the community more. He shares his vision for the Algoma Police Department during his leadership going forward.
Allen says he has received incredible support from the City of Algoma staff, and others including Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski, Kewaunee Police Chief Robin Mueller, and Gibraltar Police Chief Ryan Roesch. Comparing his past twenty years as a conservation warden to his current law enforcement position, Allen says it's refreshing to do even more for the public as Algoma’s police chief.
