The City of Red Wing wishes to recognize Police Captain Darold Glander for more than 32 years of dedicated and loyal service to the citizens of Red Wing.  Captain Glander began his career with the Red Wing Police Department on August 16, 1981 when he was hired by former Chief Forest Wipperling.  In May of 1991 he was promoted to Police Lieutenant and on January 26, 2004 he was promoted to his present position as Police Captain.  Captain Glander played a key role in the enhanced use of technology within the Red Wing Police Department.  He oversaw the transition of going from VHS format for the in-car video systems to the present digital format with wireless upload to the server.  In 2006, he oversaw the installation of mobile data terminals in all the squad cars, thereby providing every officer the ability to check driver license status and warrants from their squad cars.  Captain Glander’s most recent project was the implementation of the 800 MHz ARMER radio system, providing interoperability with State and Regional first responders.  These projects were critical to enhancing the safety and efficiency of our officers and we are grateful for his efforts.  The public is invited to Captain Glander’s retirement open house, on February 28, 2014 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM at the Law Enforcement Center, EOC classroom.
