Officer Shannon Mitchell is the West St. Paul police department’s new D.A.R.E. officer.
When West St. Paul Police Chief Bud Shaver served as the department’s first D.A.R.E. officer roughly 25 years ago, he helped his fifth-grade participants plant trees, as a symbol of growth, outside Garlough Elementary School.
Last week members of Mendota Heights Police Department accompanied the family of slain Officer Scott Patrick to Washington D.C. to partcipate in the memorial activites at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
