City Manager Al Orsen and Wayzata Police Chief Mike Risvold administered the swearing in of new police officer Dustin Edberg at the City Council meeting on May 3, 2011.  

Edberg is a native of Brooklyn Park, and is now a Maple Grove resident.  He began working in retail loss prevention after high school for Target, with his most recent work transpiring with Bloomingdale's.  Edberg became a Wayzata reserve officer in 2006, graduated with a Associate Degree from Hennepin Tech in 2007, and has been volunteering one day a week as a reserve performing Community Service Officer duties.

Chief Risvold talked about the importance of makeing the right hire during the cremony, "As Police Chief, this is a decision you don't want to get wrong.  It's a career decision for the City of Wayzata. We would expect and hope that Dustin would have a long career with this department until he chooses to retire. We go into a decision like this with that in mind."

Edberg thanked the Council, his family and his friends after the swearing in, "It means a lot to me, I can't wait to get started.  I am very happy to be here."

Edberg will continue to be in training with the Wayzata Police Department until the first part of August.
