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."
