For the first time in nearly 10 months, the Wadena Police Department is fully staffed.

Patrol Officer Nathan Warner joined the force May 11, marking the end of a period of transition that began when Chief Bruce Uselman retired last summer. Warner filled the vacancy created by Brandon Pearson's promotion to sergeant in January. Pearson replaced Naomi Plautz, who became interim, then permanent, chief after Uselman departed.
