RPD hires new officer

By Staff | Oct 3, 2014


The Rugby Police Department welcomed new hire Gretel Vavrovsky to the force this week.

Vavrovsky, 23, is a Grafton native and recent graduate of police academy in Grand Forks. She majored in criminal justice and French at University of North Dakota. Vavrovsky is a second-degree black belt in Taekwondo.

“It’s really important for me to have a small town and something I can relate to,” she said. “I thought it’d be a perfect town to start in.”

Vavrovsky’s mother, a member of the Otto family, was born in Rugby.
