This is the text of an internal email that was circulated to staff at the City of Northfield’s police department this morning at about 9:20.
It was forwarded to me at about 11 am and I’ve made numerous phone calls to city leaders since, attempting to confirm. My co-host, Ross Currier, was able to confirm it via a phone conversation at around 2:45 pm.
The Chief has requested an indefinite leave of absence and it has been granted by the City Administrator. Roger Schroeder has been promoted to Captain, effective immediately. Capt. Schroeder will handle day to day operations of the department. If you have any questions, please see a Supervisor. Any questions regarding the Chief will be handled by the City Administrator.
