The Lake Ozark Police Department continues gearing up for the return of the millions of visitors to the lake area over the summer.
New Chief Jeff Christenson says a couple of the recent smaller events provided his force with a good start for the main show.
“The 5K, the pub crawl, the parade….and so far we’ve been able to manage those and I think it’s a great way to segway into the summertime.”
Christiansen also says a big priority of his will be getting 2-4 more officers hired on and a K-9 program started which entails a lot more than just taking care of typical K-9 duties.
“One of the big things I want is a very good PR dog. I think it’s important for us to get into the schools…we can go through the grade school and have the officer work with the kids. I think it’s a great and awesome PR piece.”
Christiansen was a recent guest on the KRMS Morning Magazine.
