New RPD Officer sworn into office Tuesday night

A new Riverton police officer was introduced to the City Council on Tuesday night. Chief Mike Broadhead said Scott Christoffersen came to Riverton from Casa Grande, Arizona and that he had been with the department for about three weeks. Christofferson's wife Brittany had the honor of pinning the badge on her husband before he was sworn in by Mayor Lars Baker. As a bonus, Broadhead said he received a package from Christoffersen's former employer and it contained a Life Saving Award for action the officer took before leaving Arizona. The Chief said the Christoffersen had revived a woman and had given her CPR and that the woman is now recovering. The new officer was joined at the ceremony by members of his family and a large number of RPD staff and officers.
