Congratulations go out to the East Millinocket Police and Officer Garrett Carlson who is going full time with the Department.

Officer Carlson started part time in March of this year. It’s always great to see more law enforcement joining the ranks to protect and serve the communities in the area.

Working in the fire service for 10 years, Officer Carlson has dedicated himself to public safety. He is a 2018 graduate from Beal College where he studied and earned a degree in  Criminal Justice Conservation Law Enforcement.

The information was shared on the East Millinocket Police Department’s Facebook. They said Officer Carlson “enjoys spending time with his family, friends, and of course, his beloved Golden Retriever, Zoey.” The post also said he will be a welcome addition to the force as he serves the Katahdin, Maine region of the state.

In August, 2021, he moved up to full time. The next step over the next few months is to attend the Maine Criminal Justice Academy, said EMPD.
