Mahnomen, MN -- After 35 years in law enforcement and 30 years with the Mahnomen County Sheriff’s Office, Mahnomen County Sheriff Doug Krier signed off for the final time last week. Sheriff Krier retired at the age of 62 and handed his badge over to Josh Guenther. During his three decades with Mahnomen County, Krier says some of his biggest accomplishments include delivering two babies, leading the DARE program, and being elected as Sheriff for multiple terms.
