Mankato’s Director of Public Safety Todd Miller officially handed over the reins to Amy Vokal as he heads toward retirement.

While Miller doesn’t retire until June, Vokal will serve in the meantime.

Miller says he hopes over his nine years in Mankato that he’s helped to bridge the relationship between officers and the public.

A public reception for Miller is slated for April 5 from 2:30-4:30 at the public safety center.
