WHAT's New In the Police Department:

Welcome to the Box Elder Police Department Officer Grove!

Tom Grove joined the BEPD on September 1, 2021. Tom was born and raised in the Black Hills and graduated from Western Dakota Tech with an Associate’s Degree in Law Enforcement Technology in May of 2016. Tom migrated to the eastern side of the state in September of 2017 having accepted a position with the Gregory Police Department. Tom is excited to have found his way back to his home turf and the City of Box Elder.

Tom is a big fan of many sports including baseball, basketball, and football. He enjoys just about anything outdoors such as hiking, fishing, hunting, and camping.

Tom said he is known for being taller than he looks in his photos so; keep an eye out and a hand up for a waive to the new guy in town!
