WPD appoints patrol sergeant
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.
