Local News

After an attack on a New Zealand Mosque that killed at least 49 people, the Green Bay Police Department has issued a comment and have contacted local Mosque leaders offering their support. 

The Department has assigned a patrol officer to provide additional security to the Mosque and Chief Andrew Smith is meeting with Islamic faith leaders and members at a prayer service.

Chief Smith also commented saying;

“The attack on worshipers at the mosque in New Zealand was a despicable crime, perpetrated by evil people. Attacking unarmed people in their place of worship is a vile act of cowardice, and we extend our deepest sympathies out to the victims and their families. We are committed to working together to prevent attacks like this from happening again.”
