Ramsey County Deputy Chris Tayson was shot and injured tonight while working to arrest a fugitive. The Minneapolis Star Tribune has an evening article on their website about this incident. I’m very glad to hear that Deputy Tayson will make a full recovery.
I was speaking to one of our officers here in Northfield tonight about another matter when he told me about this incident. We had a brief discussion about this before we hung up. It reminded me that despite the differences officers everywhere are concerned when an officer is injured.
It also serves to remind me how grateful I am to the men and women of the Northfield Police Department who risk their lives every day to make sure we all are safe.
