A University of North Dakota police officer is being recognized as local Law Enforcement Officer of the year. Lieutenant Don Rasmuson has been patrolling the UND campus for more than three decades.

UND officials say in that time Rasmuson has continually worked to improve the safety of students and assisted other organizations throughout Grand Forks, the state and the region.

Rasmuson: "What keeps me doing this is the idea and the thought that I'm going to make a difference to somebody."

Rasmuson said he was a bit surprised when he learned that he was being nominated for the award, and even more after winning it.
