A fifth officer is on the Rugby police force.
Officer Dayton Denning started Feb. 20. Prior to Rugby, Denning worked for over a year in the Bismarck-Mandan area.
"It's a change, but I like it," Denning said of the change in areas. He added that compared to the Bismarck-Mandan area, the Rugby area is at slower pace and has more opportunities to get to know people in a smaller community.
In a Public Safety Committee meeting in February, Rugby Police Chief John Rose said he anticipated Denning would need a minimal amount of training time due to his previous law enforcement experience.
