  • The city of Cold Spring has retired the badge number of slain police Officer Tom Decker.
    The Cold Spring City Council retired Decker's badge number at Wednesday's meeting as a sign of respect.
    Badge No. 6402 will no longer be used by the Cold Spring-Richmond Police Department. The department has eight full-time officers and eight part-time officers.
    City Administrator Paul Hetland tells the St. Cloud Times (http://on.sctimes.com/12ejMvF ) that Police Chief Phil Jones asked for Decker's badge number to be retired. Officials hope to have a formal ceremony to retire the number later.
    Decker was gunned down Nov. 29 while responding to a call in Cold Spring. The investigation into his shooting is ongoing.
