East District Blotter

Meet East District Neighborhood Officer Gary Pihlaja

October 27, 2017 9:23 AM

I'm the Darbo Worthington Neighborhood Officer.  I've been with MPD since 2008 and have been a patrol officer on various shifts and districts.  I have also served on the south and west community policing teams.  I'm a medic on the Special Events Team and I instruct on multiple topics in the academy.

I earned a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from Lake Superior State University and I'm currently working on my master's in criminal justice at UW-Platteville.

I enjoy being a neighborhood officer because it allows me to build relationships with people and grow trust.  This position gives me the flexibility to follow-up on problems in the neighborhood and work toward longer term solutions.
