LINCOLN COUNTY – In the wake of the State of Wisconsin and the Department of Health’s Safer at Home order requiring everyone in the state to stay at their home or place of residence with exceptions for essential activities or travel, local law enforcement agencies have shed some light on what their procedures will be in the coming weeks.
Within the City of Tomahawk, don’t expect too much to change, according to Police Chief Al Elvins.
“Pretty much business as usual, unless a more restrictive order is enacted,” he said when asked about his department’s protocol during the month-long order, in place until April 24.
Lincoln County Sheriff Ken Schneider said the Sheriff’s Office will be responding to complaints on a case-by-case basis.
“We really hope to see the cooperation of the people in and around Lincoln County to achieve voluntary compliance,” he said. “Our first job is the protection of our people and we need to be healthy to do that. Please help us to remain healthy by following the order, so we can be there to protect you.”
