City Council moves forward with police chief interviews

by Leslie Ehrenberg

The Appleton City Council has moved forward in their search for a police chief with interviews. At their special meeting March 7, the city council heard plans to interview four of the six applicants.

Interviewed were:

• Sedrick Borsgaard of Appleton. Borsgaard is currently a deputy with the Swift County Sheriff’s Office.

• John Reigstad of Clontarf. He is also a deputy with the Swift County Sheriff’s Office and a part-time officer with the Appleton Police Department.

• Brennan McAlpin of Benson, who is an officer with the Benson Police Department.

• Daniel A. Halonen of New Hardeck, North Dakota. Halonen is a deputy with the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office In Manning, North Dakota.

The interviews were completed Friday, March 9. A recommendation from the interviewing committee will be brought to the city council at their regular monthly meeting Wednesday, March 21.

From there, the council will make a final decision on whether to retain the local police department and hire a police chief, or to move forward with a proposal for the Swift County Sheriff’s Office to take over law enforcement for the city.

The proposal from the Swift County Sheriff’s Office was reviewed by the council at their February 21 meeting.
