New officer brings a wealth of experience
Katie Ruesink worked as a paramedic for HealthEast for nine years. It was a satisfying job and she was good at it. In 2013, she was named the Outstanding EMS Provider Award by the Dakota County EMS Council.
Still, what Ruesink really wanted was to work in law enforcement. She caught the bug working as a reserve officer for the city of Maplewood. A while back she earned a certificate in law enforcement from Alexandria Technical College.
