SL City Council hires new full-time police officer

The Silver Lake City Council has spent the better part of the past year searching for either a police chief or officer. 
 
The process came closer to an end on Monday, April 18, when the council interviewed and offered the full-time officer position to Kyle Jorgensen.
 
Jorgensen, a Maple Grove native, accepted the position at $17.04 per hour, pending positive results of all background checks.
 
After graduating and receiving his law enforcement degree from Alexandria Technical and Community College in 2013, Jorgenson has held security positions with Canterbury Park, Allina Hospital in Buffalo and the Department of Homeland Security.
 
He has also served as a reserve officer, community service officer and deputy with the Anoka County Sheriff’s Department.
