LESTER PRAIRIE, MN Many changes have taken place in law enforcement since Fred Blaser joined the Lester Prairie Police Department in 1974.
Lester Prairie Police Chief Bob Carlson shared some of the highlights during a reception honoring Blaser prior to Tuesday’s city council meeting.
Blaser was mamed Lester Prairie police chief in 1983, and retired as a full-time officer in May 2002.
Since that time, he has continued to serve as a part-time officer.
During the reception Tuesday, Carlson presented Blaser with a certificate of appreciation for his years of service and committment to the city.
