Among several other changes in the last six months, the Detroit Lakes Police Department has also hired two new police officers.

Officers Philip Vaughn and Wayne Striebel were sworn into office last week.


Striebel is married with four sons and has served with the Red Lake Tribal Police and as a Traverse County deputy.

"There is a lot of beauty and activity here," he said. "I'm pleased and proud to be here."
