After serving for twenty-one years in Slayton, Brian’s last day leading the force was Friday, January 4th. “Police work is all I’ve ever done, so leaving is bittersweet,” remarked Chief Christensen.

Brian added, “It’s all about the community and my staff. It’s easy to police good people.” Now he plans to train for a position with the post office, working as a rural mail carrier. “I still get to have a light on top of my car!” he laughed. Numerous people attended the open house for Brian, showering him with thanks, appreciation and good wishes.
