Red Lake members now police officers

Red Lake Department of Public Safety Director William Brunelle has announced the recent graduation of police officers Robert Lynch and Stephen Dow.

Both officers are enrolled members of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa.

The officers attended a 16-week police academy at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, N.M.

The academy is an intense law enforcement program that covers a variety of law enforcement aspects, ranging from self-defense, arrest and defensive driving techniques to firearms training. The program also includes tribal case law.

The officers will be assigned to routine patrols after completion of field training programs.
