Email News Alerts

Thirty-five-year cop Brian Nelson will be leaving law enforcement at the end of June--to write the great American novel, sell the movie rights, and lay around on the beach.


That's the outgoing Perham police chief's plan. The novel and the movie rights may be an uncertainty, but the beach time is certainly an attainable goal.

June 30 will be Nelson's final day, as he outlined in his resignation letter--presented to the Perham City Council at the May 10 meeting.
