City of Algoma, Wisconsin Seeking Police Chief

September 12, 2018

The City of Algoma, Wisconsin, is accepting applications to fill the position of Police Chief. The City of Algoma and Kewaunee County entered into a contract to provide police management services to oversee the operations of the city police department, effective November 1, 2013. The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Office recently informed the City that it will terminate its participation in this contract, effective December 31, 2018. The City desires to continue to operate its own city police department, and is therefore in need of selecting a police chief in a timely manner prior to December 31st.

The City

The City of Algoma encompasses an area of approximately 2.51 square miles, and is located in northeastern Kewaunee County, which is situated on the Door Peninsula, along Lake Michigan’s famed “Schooner Coast”. Located just 30 minutes east of Green Bay, and 20 minutes south of Sturgeon Bay, the City is part of the Green Bay Metropolitan Statistical Area. Algoma is the largest city in Kewaunee County, and borders the townships of Ahnapee and Pierce. The City of Algoma’s most recent population estimate stands at 3,126.

Overall, the City of Algoma is considered a family oriented community that has a “park-like” feel, with its grand Crescent Beach and boardwalk. The city features an attractive harbor and marina that is Wisconsin’s #1 port for world class Salmon and Trout charter fishing for Chinook and Coho salmon, as well as Brown Trout, Lake Trout, and Steelheads. The city also offers an abundance of well managed parks, greenspace areas, and various recreational facilities, including the Ahnapee State Trail, and the Ice Age National Trail. The residents of the city are very active and take pride in their community. The City lies entirely within the Algoma School District, which provides educational services for students from the City, and the Towns of Ahnapee, Casco, Lincoln and Pierce.
