Police Officers are sworn to protect and to serve and occasionally hop a fence. This takes some serious skills, that not everyone is able to pull off.

This pursuit occurred in 2013, but some staff from the department decided to get a good laugh by posting this on their Facebook page. Thankfully the suspect was apprehended and the fence was able to be repaired.

Thank you for all you do officers, but at least you caught the guy.

Bad day at work? Here is a laugh for you. In September 2013, Officer Steffen was pursuing a shoplifting suspect from Walmart that he had spotted running through the Menards property. He had an issue with a fence during the pursuit. Officer Steffen was not injured and Menards had no problem repairing their fence given the nature of this incident. The suspect was apprehended, charge and convicted. #tbt
