Newly promoted Sgt. Investigator Naomi Plautz had been determined for a career in law enforcement since her early high school days.

"It began in ninth grade when I knew that I wanted to be a police officer," Plautz said. "I just didn't know at that time what it all entailed."


Plautz replaces the recently retired Sgt. Investigator Tom Crawford. She will lead investigations and have a supervisory role over officers in the Wadena Police Department.
