There's a new face in the lineup at the Big Rapids Police Division. Public Safety Director Jim Eddinger introduced Officer Eric Winsor to the Big Rapids City Commission earlier this week and Winsor says he's glad to be here.
“I worked in Minnesota for two years and my wife, Caitlin, got into Ferris for optometry, so that's what brought us to Michigan. She's from Michigan and [I'm] thrilled to be a part of this community and absolutely honored to be a part of this department.”
Winsor was sworn in as a Big Rapids police officer by City Clerk Tammy Gillis. Winsor's father, who was a police officer in St. Paul, Minnesota for 30 years, made the trip for the swearing in ceremony.
