Two new police officers will soon be patrolling the streets of Alexandria.

At its meeting Monday night, the city council approved Police Chief Rick Wyffel’s request to hire the officers.


One of the officers will replace Burt Crary, who is resigning January 23 after nearly 20 years of service to take a position with the Minnesota State Patrol. The other officer is an addition included in the police department’s 2014 budget.
