Aaron Hansen said, for as long as he’s been in law enforcement, it’s been a goal to be an investigator.
On Dec. 3, the goal becomes reality, as Hansen will officially become a Pierce County Sheriff’s Department investigator. Hansen will remain a patrol officer until then.
“I am honored to serve the residents of Pierce County in this way,” he said.
The Shell Lake native graduated from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay before starting with the sheriff’s department seven years ago. He did one year as a part-timer, then became a full-timer in jail/dispatch for another year. He then shifted to the road, where he has been since.
Hansen said, while he will miss some patrol aspects, the chance to finish or follow-up on cases investigations excites him.
And he’s also happy to be joining a “very good group of investigators,” which includes Doug Ducklow, Tom Bauer, Marty Shepler, Tom Gunderson and Lieutenant Wade Strain.
“I can’t wait to be part of the team,” he said.
Hansen has traditionally worked nights, but come December, he said his schedule will likely be days during the week, along with the usual on-call period.
Hansen calls River Falls home with wife Kyla and their two young children.
