Saturday will be Officer Matson Day. That’s according to a proclamation by the Waseca and Albert Lea Mayors.

Arik Matson is the Waseca Police officer who was shot on January 6th.

Saturday’s date, 2-22 was picked because that is Matson’s badge number (222).

Albert Lea Mayor Vern Rasmussen, Jr. is encouraging everyone to take a moment at 2:22 P-M to “not only remember Arik but all Law Enforcement personnel.”
