Crime and Other Public Safety Challenges in Golden Valley

Retired Twin Cities police chief Scott Nadeau has been named interim chief to the Golden Valley Police Department. Nadeau is expected to serve the department for four to six months as the city searches for a permanent candidate.

He said the interim job was an ideal fit, as he had just retired from a 33-year career in law enforcement. He has served as an officer in Brooklyn Center, as police chief in Columbia Heights, and most recently, as director of the police and fire departments in Maplewood.

Nadeau joked that he had a “wonderful two months” of retirement before accepting the interim job.
