The City of Hastings reports that Hastings Police Officer Chad Schlichte has been selected to fill the next rotation in Police Investigations. According to the City newsletter, Chad joined the Hastings Police Department in 2019 after serving as a Police Officer in St. James and Deputy Sheriff in Martin County. During his tenure there he received a great deal of investigative training and practical experience, all of which aligned well with the current needs of the Hastings Police Department. Schlichte is expected to assume his new role in early June, replacing Investigator Paul Young who has served as an Investigator since 2018 and will be returning to the Patrol Division.
