New police officer hired
June 23, 2023
With the appointment of new police officer Jacob Bubb at Tuesday’s Cloquet City Council meeting, the Cloquet Police Department is nearly at full strength — 24 sworn police officers — after being decimated by a wave of disability retirements several years ago.
Police chief Derek Randall said Bubb was the top candidate, and will be a good fit for the department, which he said is young and passionate about community policing.
Bubb was born and raised in Esko, and attended Hibbing Community College to get his degree in law enforcement. He is close to his parents and four siblings.
