This month two EPPD officers will be going on military leave and serving our country, rather than just our community, for a brief time.
Officer Mason Heine serves in the 257th Military Police Company, Minnesota Army National Guard. He is deploying to Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp in Cuba and is expected to return in late 2017.
Officer Evan Hynek, who is a 2nd Lieutenant in the Minnesota Army National Guard, is leaving for Army Logistics University at Fort Lee, Va. He will attend an Ordinance Basic Officer Leadership Course and is expected to return in June of this year.
Both officers served as Community Service Officers for the EPPD before becoming sworn officers in September 2016.
We are proud to support them as they serve our country and look forward to their safe return home.
