Gaylord Gets New Police Chief 06 Mar 14

The City of Gaylord has a new Chief of Police.

Tony Padilla has taken over the police chief duties from Kenn Mueller, who announced his retirement plans a few months ago after a 25-year career in law enforcement.

Padilla came to Gaylord after serving as canine handler for Steele County.

He has also worked for the McLeod County Sheriff’s Office and Arlington Police Department.

Mueller plans to assist the police department with the transition for the next couple of weeks.
