CPD Chief Biermaier says he has a full patrol staff now.

At Monday evening’s Crookston City Council meeting, held in the U of M Crookston’s Bee Ballroom, Crookston Police Chief Paul Biermaier led new CPD Officer Ryan Brekken through his oath.

CPD personnel on hand to witness the swearing-in were Dave Grabowski, Darin Selzler, and Don Rasicot.

With Brekken’s hiring, Biermaier says he, for the first time in a while, has a full staff of 16 officers. That includes Rasicot, who's the school resource officer.
