Jack Schmidt of Pequot Lakes asked the city council Tuesday, Feb. 5, to ensure it is abiding by its police policy.
Specifically, Schmidt questioned the practice of officers leaving their squad cars running in winter. He said the council is obligated to honor whatever policy it set. He said the police chief wasn’t able to find the policy.
Council member Scott Pederson said he also couldn’t find the policy. But after doing research, he said there are good reasons for officers to leave squads running.
Mayor Nancy Adams said she would find the policy and contact Schmidt.
