New officer is coming home
It’s been seven years since Alex Luck graduated and set out to see the world. In that time, both he and Rosemount have changed.
After graduating from Rosemount High School in 2006, Luck joined the United States Coast Guard. He served four years and completed two deployments during his service — one to Asia and Russian and another to South America.
Luck said he chose the Coast Guard because he could help people while learning about law enforcement. The skills he learned during his service should transfer to his work as a member of the Rosemount Police Department.
After finishing his service, Luck attended St. Cloud State University to get a degree in law enforcement. He has worked for Stearns County as a corrections officer. When a position opened in Rosemount, Luck said he knew he wanted to try for it.
“I really wanted to get in here,” said Luck.
Beating out a large pool to become Rosemount’s newest officer, Luck began his duties Sept. 18. He will be officially sworn in during the Oct. 1 Rosemount City Council meeting.
With a lot of new things to learn, Luck said he hasn’t much thought about the future. He’s just excited to be working as a full-time police officer.
Going forward, Luck said he wants people to know that he approachable and there to help when needed. While it’s a little weird being back in his hometown after so many years, Luck said he’s excited about serving the people about Rosemount.
“I’ve always wanted to help people,” said Luck.
Luck is the son of Deb Luck and Wayne Luck, both of Rosemount.
