The Wadena Police Department observed the four-year anniversary Tuesday of the passing of on-duty police officer Pete Resch.

On May 19, 2005, Resch responded to a domestic disturbance at a Wadena apartment and wrestled with a suspect there. After the suspect was subdued and cuffed, Resch was leading him through the hallway when the officer collapsed.
