WORTHINGTON — Officer Nate Grimmius was appointed to patrol sergeant for the Worthington Police Department during a swearing-in ceremony Friday.

Grimmius has been with the department since 2004. He was appointed as an agent to the Buffalo Ridge Task Force in 2007.

“He’s a hard worker, diligent, reliable — he’s everything you’d want in a leadership position,” Interim Chief Kevin Flynn said during the ceremony.

Grimmius is active in the community, as he coaches high school hockey team and is a member of the Worthington Fire Department.

Worthington City Administrator Craig Clark made a brief statement on behalf of the city.

“Nate works hard and is diligent,” Clark said. “He’s a man of few words, but he speaks through his actions and that is what stood out to me.”

“This means a lot to me, and this is something I’ll never forget,” Grimmius said following the ceremony.

Grimmius’ family was in attendance, and wife Petra was given the honor of pinning on a new badge and brass on his uniform. The couple’s seven-month-old son, Jackson, was also there to see his dad be honored.
