A familiar face has joined the Woodbury Public Safety Department.
Adam Sack is the city’s newest police officer and was sworn in Wednesday, Jan. 11, by Woodbury Mayor Mary Giuliani Stephens.
Sack has been a community service officer for the city of Woodbury for one year. He also volunteers as a reserve officer for the St. Paul Police Department.
Sack graduated with an associate degree in law enforcement from Rasmussen College and completed the skills program.
He’s currently attending Metropolitan State University for a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.
Public Safety Director Lee Vague said out of nearly 300 applicants who applied for the position, Sack stood out the most.
And since Sack has been a part of the police department as a community service officer, many of Vague’s colleagues recommended him for the job.
“Very subtle hints like ‘hire that guy,’” Vague said with a smile.
Sack has also shown leadership skills while working with juveniles in the Peer COR program, a student-run court system in area schools, he added.
“Adam has put in countless hours as a volunteer for our Peer COR program,” Vague said.
Vague presented Sack with a special badge representing his number which symbolizes his historical place in the Woodbury police roster.
“I’m very pleased to say that Adam rose to the top,” he said.
