Brown County Health & Human Services - Public Health Division

Today, Wisconsin Department of Health Services Secretary-Designee Andrea Palm issued an order to limit public gatherings to 25% capacity in indoor public spaces. You can find Emergency Order #3, as well as a list of exempted gatherings and an FAQ document here:

Emergency Order #3:https://evers.wi.gov/Documents/COVID19/EmO03-LimitingPublicGatherings.pdf

FAQ:https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/publications/p02792.pdf

This order does not shut down anything. Instead, it just prevents situations where there are too many people in a single indoor public space at one time. The order prohibits large groups of people from gathering in indoor spaces that are open to the public (unless an exception applies).

Please stay home as much as possible, limit your travel to essential needs only, and if you have to go out, please wear a mask. We'll get through this together, Wisconsin.

Chief Smith Community Update - 10/02/20

Chief Andrew Smith’s Community Update: “You don’t have a right to resist a lawful arrest”

Chief Smith addresses the COVID-19 increase and the current effect on our Department. He also discusses the recent event of an arrest of a double homicide suspect that by resisting arrest, also lead to the stabbing/slashing of an officer, injury of another officer, and the endangerment of the public.

10/02/2020

We have received many questions about the validity of a viral Facebook post claiming that there was an attempted kidnapping involving a woman/girl begging for help or crying. If anyone has information pertaining to this incident, we encourage them to contact law enforcement. At this time, we question the validity of this post and do not believe it to be true. We understand that posts like this cause a lot of fear, panic and anxiety in our neighborhoods. We work daily to ensure all residents are safe and to remove and deter any fear or panic in our community.

We encourage all social media users to check the validity of any story before re-sharing. Often we see statements about “the police said” or “the officer said” which are often not true or can not be substantiated. This not only causes unnecessary panic, it also takes away from the true public understanding of what is occurring in our neighborhood.. If something like this happens to you, CONTACT LAW ENFORCEMENT. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and several of our officers will again be wearing pink badges. We hope that it serves as a small reminder to community members about the importance of getting checked and early detection. Especially in current times, it is important to stay on top of your health, including doing appropriate screening, and talking to your doctor about any health concerns.
The project was initiated by Lt Mahoney after his wife Jen was diagnosed with, and beat, breast cancer. It was through early detection that lead to a good prognosis for Jen. Officers purchased the badges and all proceeds were donated to the Ribbon of Hope Foundation.

As has been reported by the media, we responded to a double homicide last night around 8:30 pm in the 500 block of Clement St. on the City’s east side. The call came out as a report of a disturbance in which a male was observed lying in a hallway covered in blood. Officers arrived and found two deceased males. Investigators were called in and after searching the area for hours, the suspect was located in his vehicle near Humboldt Road.

Officers tried to stop the suspect and he fled on a lengthy pursuit which ended up on Broadway St, downtown. The suspect then fled on foot for a short time. As the officers took the suspect into custody, he slashed a male officer in the face with a knife. Suspect was TASED and taken into custody.

The injured GBPD officer was taken to an area hospital with severe facial lacerations. He underwent reconstructive surgery to his face this morning and was released from the hospital. A second officer was hospitalized for a head and neck injury he suffered during the incident. He was discharged home and will be off for a few days for observation.

The suspect is being treated for self-inflicted wounds. Charges with the DA’s office will be filed as soon as possible. We believe the suspect acted alone, and he was related to both victims.

“I am proud of our officers for relentlessly pursuing this double homicide suspect and taking him into custody,” said Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith. “Again our officers put themselves in harm’s way to protect our community. These officers demonstrated courage while taking a violent, knife-wielding, double homicide suspect safely into custody.”
