Bulk of police force resigns in northern Minnesota's Moose Lake

DULUTH - Interim Police Chief Chad Pattison is a force of one overseeing law enforcement of the northeastern Minnesota city of Moose Lake.

Two officers resigned from the typically five-person force last month, and two others, including the chief, last summer. This week, its City Council could decide to stick with a Moose Lake force or sign a contract with Carlton County to have four of its deputies oversee it, a controversial choice in the city of 2,600.

"It's small-town America," Pattison said, "and people want to keep their police department. They love their law enforcement here."
