At a time when law enforcement agencies struggle to find recruits, the Anoka County Sheriff's Office is swearing in new deputies.

In Det. Chris Johnson's decades in the Anoka County Sheriff's Office, he never imagined he would work with his son, Brad.

"I can't believe he's doing this," Chris said. "Here he is, he's my son, you know and I've been in this career for 25 years and I'm sitting next to him working."

Retired Det. Thomas Strusinski is experiencing the same sense of pride, watching his son, Joshua, take the oath to serve and protect.

"It's a wonderful career, I had a great 28 year … serving the people in Anoka County was, you know, an ambition of mine," Thomas said. "And to see him continue serving the citizens of Anoka County is just a wonderful thing."

Both deputies Strusinksi and Johnson are amongst a new generation committed to helping take the profession to the next level.
