Congrats Reserve Officer McMahon!
Today Reserve Officer Brett McMahon will work his last shift after 20 years of volunteering his time at the Eden Prairie Police Department. Brett chose today, 02-12, for his last shift since his badge number is 212. He will spend the afternoon patrolling with his good friend, former Police Chief Jim DeMann.
During his 20 years in the Reserve Unit, Brett worked his way up to the top spot, Reserve Unit Supervisor. When the Reserve Unit Color Guard started in 2009, Brett volunteered raising and lowering flags at city buildings, putting in 182 hours at that task. In total, Brett has logged 4,166 hours during his Reserve career. That’s the equivalent of two years’ worth of work from a fulltime employee!
The EPPD is fortunate to have the Reserves, a group of committed volunteers who assist our sworn officers by performing community service tasks and non-criminal police functions. Reserve officers also assist in natural disasters and other emergencies that require additional personnel.
The Reserve Unit is currently recruiting new members. If you are interested in joining this dedicated group of volunteers, please fill out the application on the Reserve Unit website.
Congrats Brett and thank you for your dedicated service to the citizens of Eden Prairie!
