Officer of the Year

Officer Christopher Kober has been named the Officer of the Year for 2018. Officer Kober has been with the department since 2011 and is currently assigned to the patrol division. He is a field training officer, Glock armorer, tactical fitness instructor and is also a member of our uniform and equipment committee.

Officer Kober goes above and beyond what is expected. He quickly answers calls, never complains about call load, and does more than his fair share. He is always willing to assist on calls without taking over. Officer Kober does not complain about doing police tasks that are less glamorous but still need to be completed such as parking enforcement and paper service. Officer Kober assists in maintaining the department’s warrant list and has been helpful answering questions and passing along vital information.

Officer Kober stays very busy during his shifts and is a valuable asset to our team.

Congratulations to Officer Christopher Kober, the River Falls Police Department’s 2018 Officer of the Year.
