A Promotion & A Retirement
The EPPD is proud to announce that the department’s newest sergeant is Scott Mittelstadt. A 12-year veteran of the department, Sgt. Mittelstadt grew up in Apple Valley and graduated from St. Cloud State with a BA in Criminal Justice. Before coming to Eden Prairie, Sgt. Mittelstadt worked as a state trooper for 3½ years.
While in Eden Prairie, Sgt. Mittelstadt has worked as a patrol officer, SWAT team member, instructor and field training officer. Since October 2013, Sgt. Mittelstadt has worked as a K-9 officer with his partner Riggs, who will now enjoy a well-deserved retirement at home with Sgt. Mittelstadt and his family.
The EPPD appreciates all that Sgt. Mittelstadt and Riggs have done for the department and congratulates Sgt. Mittelstadt on his promotion.
