Lawson Retirement Reception

Spencer, IA (KICD)–Hundreds gathered at the retirement reception for Spencer Police Chief Mark Lawson on Monday.

Lawson almost didn’t work in Spencer, noting that while waiting to hear if he got a job here in 1977, he took another position in Mapleton.

Lawson is proud of the fact that he had a chance to attend the FBI national academy 20 years ago.

Lawson was appointed as Police Chief seven years ago by Mayor Reynold Peterson. Lieutenant Mark Warburton has been appointed interim chief as the search for a full time replacement continues.
