Pohlman: RWPD in very good shape


Roger Pohlman officially took over as chief of the Red Wing Police Department Oct. 15, 2012.

At that time, the former U.S. Air Force man said he wasn't yet sure how or what he would change in the department. But now as Pohlman approaches his first anniversary in Red Wing, he said the last 12months have included plenty of new initiatives and goals for the future.

Still, Pohlman added that overall, he's very happy with how RWPD is operating.
