The new police chief of Brooklyn Park was sworn in Wednesday afternoon.

The city council unanimously approved the promotion of Deputy Chief Craig Enevoldson to the role of police chief on Monday.

Enevoldson started at the Brooklyn Park Police Department in 1991 when he was 20 years old. He also held the positions of school resource officer, crisis negotiator, patrol sergeant, captain of patrol and acting chief.

He graduated from Northwestern University's School of Police Staff in 2005.

Enevoldson succeeds Michael Davis, who left in October to become the director of public safety at Northeastern University in Boston.

Brooklyn Park is the sixth largest city in Minnesota.
