–The Algona Police Department has hired Marissa Miller to serve as the new law enforcement Community Liaison Officer.
The position is fairly new within the Department, as it was initially approved by the Algona City Council back in July of 2022. It’s funded through a grant from Care Connections of Northern Iowa, as well as support from the city of Algona and Kossuth County.
The liaison is tasked with implementing a community-based outreach program to support individuals who are referred through law enforcement officers.
