Welcome Officers Barrie and Williamson

Chief Jim DeMann, Officer Spencer Barrie, Officer Scott Williamson

This afternoon EPPD Chief Jim DeMann swore in the department’s two newest officers, Spencer Barrie and Scott Williamson. Both officers are quite familiar with our organization as they have served as Eden Prairie Community Service Officers since mid-2016. In addition, both officers grew up in Eden Prairie.

Officer Barrie earned an associate’s degree in law enforcement from Minneapolis Community and Technical College, and served as an operational supervisor for Valleyfair security before working for Eden Prairie.

Officer Williamson graduated from Eden Prairie High School and Minnesota State University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in law enforcement with a minor in alcohol and drug education. Prior to coming to Eden Prairie, Officer Williamson worked in loss prevention for Kohl’s in Eden Prairie Center.

Both officers will spend the next 3-4 months in the department’s Field Training Program before patrolling by themselves.

We are excited to have both of them serving as officers for the EPPD!
