Press Release regarding the ice rescue from the Door County Sheriff's Office.

PRESS RELEASE-Ice Rescue

On Thursday, February 4, 2021, at 8:56am, the Door County Sheriff’s Office was notified fishermen who were stranded on the ice in the waters of Green Bay due to pressure cracks that had opened between their location and the shoreline. Deputies were notified of and responded to three separate locations. One location was off of Sherwood Point in the town of Nasewaupee. Another location was in the Sand Bay area in the town of Gardner. The third location was in the Little Harbor area in the town of Sevastopol.

The following agencies responded with personnel and equipment to assist in this operation: Brussels-Union-Gardner (BUG) Fire Department, Luxemburg Fire Department, New Franken Fire Department, Southern Door Fire Department, Sturgeon Bay Fire Department, Door County Emergency Services, Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Wisconsin State Patrol, United States Coast Guard, and the Door County Sheriff’s Office.

Ice boats from the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Wisconsin DNR and the U.S. Coast Guard safely extracted 66 stranded fishermen over an approximate 4 hour period. Helicopters from the U.S. Coast Guard also assisted in the operation. Local responders cleared the scenes at 12:48pm. These efforts concluded just prior to a major winter storm entering the area.

The Door County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind all winter sport enthusiasts to always check the local weather conditions before heading out and they should carry a reliable means of communications with them. When venturing onto the ice, no ice is ever 100% safe. Proper attire and safety gear is a must.

[2/3/2021] 5:35am. Update on the approaching Winter Storm

Changes to the forecast:
1. A winter storm watch remains in effect for all of northeastern Wisconsin. The start time has shift some for the far eastern counties, to account for a slightly slower arrival.

2. Snowfall amounts have trended upwards, especially for much of northern Wisconsin.

Synopsis:
A light wintry mix will begin to overspread the region after midnight tonight, changing over to snow Thursday morning. Moderate to heavy snowfall will then fall over the region Thursday afternoon and evening, before decreasing again Thursday night. Winds will pick up Thursday night as snow begins to taper off, creating a blowing and drifting snow concern for Friday. This will likely also hamper efforts to clear the recently fallen snow. Travel over the course of Thursday and Friday morning will likely be impacted and slowed down by this storm system. The long period of snowfall will bring upwards of 5 inches for most of the area, and more for a good chunk of northeastern Wisconsin.

Press Release: Internet Crimes Against Children Arrest

Know the Facts:

We are aware of a video on social media that shows Sturgeon Bay Police Officers taking an individual into custody that occurred on January 24th, 2021. There are also rumors of what occurred so we are releasing the facts in this case, surrounding that arrest. This can now be released because a criminal complaint was filed and the suspect in this case was charged by the Door County District Attorney’s Office.

On January 23rd, 2021 a Sturgeon Bay Police Officer began an Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Investigation on an Internet platform called Doublelist. This investigation determined a 57-year-old male from Little Suamico, WI was communicating with what he believed to be a 15-year-old child. The suspect traveled to Sturgeon Bay, WI on January 24th, 2021 to meet with who he believed to be that child. The suspect was subsequently arrested by a team of police officers.

During the course of the investigation, it was learned the suspect was on supervision for a previous child sex crime. With the felonies committed, violation of supervision, and severity of this case, the arrest was approached as what is referred to as a high-risk traffic stop. The suspect was subsequently taken into custody without incident. The Oconto County Sheriff's Office was informed of the arrest, as he resides in their community.

Corey Bergh, a 57-year-old male from Little Suamico, WI was arrested and charged with the following crimes:

- Attempted 2nd Degree Sexual Assault of a Child
- Use of a Computer to Facilitate a Child Sex Crime
- Child Enticement

Presently, Corey Bergh is confined to the Door County Jail on a cash bond, in addition to being on a probation hold.

This case reminds us of the potential danger children can face while on the Internet. We encourage parents to talk with their children and the importance of staying safe online.

January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month

Human Trafficking is a crime that can hide in plain sight. The Wisconsin Department of Justice has great resources to combat this crime. Often, it takes a perceptive officer, store clerk, hotel worker, or bystander to notice and speak up— in order to save a victim.

If you see something, say something.

The NHTRC strives to provide survivors, advocates, law enforcement, and communities with local referrals to meet their unique needs in a given area.

COVID-19 update from Door County Public Health.
01/26/2021

COVID-19 update from Door County Public Health.

Door County Public Health and our community partners have scheduled all of the our COVID-19 vaccine clinics based on our projected ability to process people through our clinics. We have planned and prepared to provide vaccines safely and efficiently to as many Door County residents as possible. We schedule based on
what we estimate we will get in vaccine doses, how many vaccinations we can provide in a given block of time, staffing ability, and the community’s needs.

However, as we have tried to make very clear, we are also dependent on the State’s ability to receive and distribute vaccine to all Wisconsin Counties. We are able to order vaccine just one week in advance and receive confirmation just days ahead of our scheduled clinics.

With that said, we have received notice from the State that we will only receive about 30% of our requested vaccine allotment for this week’s schedule vaccine clinics on January 28-29.
This means our demand will greatly exceed our supply for this week. We will not be able to vaccinate everyone that is scheduled through the Public Health Clinics this week.

Individuals with scheduled appointments that need to be cancelled will receive an email regarding the cancelation and waitlisting
of their appointments.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience and disappointment this creates.
