Joint Informational Release
Door County Law Enforcement would like to thank the public for their continued support and diligence during the (COVID-19) pandemic and all the challenges that come with it.
With the release of Governor Tony Evers “Emergency Order #3”, which goes into effect at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 8, 2020, we understand there are many questions and concerns relating to the order and what it means.
Emergency Order #3 limits public gatherings, specifically it prohibits large groups of people from gathering in indoor spaces that are open to the public, unless an exception applies. The order prohibits groups larger than 25% of the indoor room’s occupancy capacity set by the local municipality.
A place is considered to be “open to the public” if it is accessible to the general public, and includes stores, restaurants, bars, or ticketed events. The order does not apply to outdoor areas such as park shelters, outdoor dining areas, or playgrounds.
There are numerous exceptions to the order, including child care settings, schools, health care facilities, government operations and facilities, and religious and political events. For a complete list of exemptions, please refer directly to the order. Below is a link to access the actual order as well as frequently asked questions (FAQs) related to the order.
The order will remain in effect for two incubation periods of COVID-19, which will end November 6, 2020.
As a reminder, please do not use 911 for questions relating to the order, those lines need to be kept open for emergency situations.
We know our community is strong and that we will get through this!
Stay healthy Door County!

It’s truly amazing to see what’s built right here in Sturgeon Bay!
🇺🇸 GO BIG OR GO HOME: Check out this recently completed section of our new build, the 639-foot M/V Mark W. Barker, being constructed at Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay, Wis.! 🇺🇸
This impressive module spans the full width of the ship and contains several tanks for various ship systems. It goes in the aft engine room from the shell up to the main deck and aft to the steering gear bulkhead. Soon it will be lowered and welded into position in the stern of the ship. #FreighterFriday #MadeInAmerica #SupportTheJonesAct
Let’s all take time to remember those lives that were lost. Those who hugged their loved ones one last time and went to work not knowing what the day would hold.

My son is doing virtual school today and we got discussing 9/11 and the events that unfolded that day and why the big towers fell. Took a moment to teach him from the words of Ret. Chief Vincent Dunn FDNY in his book Collapse of Burning Buildings. We said we will never forget. Let’s remember that day when we were all one. When we all stood together. No bias, no divide and a conviction to rise from the ashes.
Adopt A Soldier-Door County
To all of our Adopt A Soldier supporters. We have a local Door County graduate who enlisted in the Army in 2019. He completed his basic training, AIT training and is currently going through another specialised training before being assigned to his first duty station on the West coast. He has been unable to take any personal leave because of the COVID lockdowns that have been in place to keep all active duty soldiers safe at most of the military training bases. This young man and his new fiance were also planning and investing in an August 2020 wedding, which had to be cancelled due to COVID, like so many others have had to do. What should have been a day spent with family and friends celebrating his new marriage, new career, and the beginning of the next chapter has turned into something out of the ordinary.
He and his fiance, after dating for 4 years, were able to find a way to become husband and wife, via proxy (basically via mail). The newlyweds havent even been able to see each other since they officially were married.
He will hopefully be able to come home for one day after completing his training to get his wife and gather his things before traveling to his first duty station.
The family of this soldier has reached out to Adopt a Soldier and our local community for support for this soldier considering this unusual situation. This young couple is starting their new journey and have very little to begin their new home together. They will be traveling across the country and will only be taking a small UHaul and car hauler. They will need to get most of the basics once they get to their destination to start their new life together. They won't know what or where they will call home until they arrive.
Can you help this soldier and his new wife, with a Gift Card (Wal-Mart, Visa, Food locations, ECT) so they can have an easier start to their new life together? For information on how to help, please contact his family at 920-333-1599.

Memorial Drive is closed between 12th Ave. and 15th Ave. If you do not live on Memorial Drive between these two streets, do not transit the area. If traffic continues to use the area we will completely close off one end. The water is causing damage to the properties along Memorial Dr. Waves from vehicles transiting the area are worsening the damage.

Earlier this year Local 215 faced a devastating loss when our brother Darrin Jones passed away unexpectedly. To honor his memory we are selling t-shirts on our website. The proceeds from the sale of these shirts will be used to send his family, as well as the family of another one of our fallen brothers O'Dell Minor, to The Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Colorado Springs in 2021 to honor their memory.
The shirts can be found at https://www.local215.org/shop/
Please celebrate safely, and take a moment to remember those who have sacrificed everything...

*PSA for City of Sturgeon Bay and Sevastopol residents.*
There are currently no open burning permits being issued, but campfires contained within a ring being supervised by an adult is perfectly fine.
Stay safe, stay healthy!
While it is not fire safety week, we would like to think every week is! While the whole family is home why not practice your fire escape plan or make one if you don’t already have one in place!
Pull together everyone in your household and make a plan. Walk through your home and inspect all possible exits and escape routes. Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors. Also, mark the location of ea...
Be smart about giving out ANY personal information to unverified sources!
04-17-2020 Update Posted- Subjects Identified. Not a Scam.
The Door County Sheriff’s Office has been receiving complaints of suspicious activity. A female with long blonde hair in her mid to late 40’s, dressed in casual business attire has been approaching residences, knocking on the door, and attempting to obtain information from residents about their Medicare information. A vehicle associated with these incidents is reported to be a smaller black SUV, driven by a male subject.
It is believed this activity is a potential scam. The Door County Sheriff’s Office reminds citizens to remain vigilant by never providing personal or financial information to an unverified source/person. Any suspicious activity should be reported to the Door County Sheriff’s Office (920) 746-2416.
Let us know something positive that has come from staying safe at home!

Wearing a cloth face covering CORRECTLY can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others. When you go out on essential trips, follow these “do’s”.
If you have a child, remember those under age 2 should not wear a face covering. See: https://bit.ly/2R9av5m
