Elk River Police Officer Tom Chaffin is the most recent officer featured in a statewide video series called Wear the Badge, a campaign aimed at improving the recruitment and retention of police officers. Officer Chaffin was recommended by Elk River Police Chief Ron Nierenhausen, who felt the public would connect with Tom’s journey through his law enforcement career.
“Officer Chaffin brings a unique perspective to our department, having started his career a few years ago with the Dallas Police Department,” said Chief Nierenhausen. “While he enjoyed his large-agency experience in Texas, Tom ultimately wanted to return to his Minnesota roots and serve in a community like Elk River. We are fortunate to have him.”
