The Morris Police Department is at full staff after the hiring of new officer A.J. (Anthony) Tiesler, police chief Reggie Welle said at the July 23 Morris City Council meeting.

Tiesler was sworn in as the new officer at the meeting.

This is his first police officer job, Welle said. Tiesler is a graduate of Alexandria Technical College and was jailer in Todd County and worked in loss control for a retail business before joining the Morris department, Welle said.

“We are excited to have him on board,” Welle said.
