The process of finding a new police chief in Algoma continues after Monday’s deadline for applications. The City of Algoma has reached out to find qualified candidates locally and throughout the state, according to Administrator Jeff Wiswell. He explains who will be involved in the interview process after all the applications are reviewed.
Wiswell says applicants should have a minimum of three to five years of supervision work with ten years of law enforcement experience. He says hopes are to have a candidate selected for the Algoma Police Chief position in early November after a background check is done. The contract with Kewaunee County for police services ends on December 31.
