(Horicon) A pinning ceremony was held recently for a Horicon patrol officer who was promoted to lieutenant. Amy Yahnke is a 17-year veteran of the police force and is replacing Russ Saunders who is retiring next month. Police Chief Joe Adamson says more than one person applied but Yahnke rose to the occasion and stood out amongst her peers. Yahnke, who has been with the Horicon Police Department for six years, says she is looking forward to the opportunity and loves the community. Yahnke’s husband Dale and daughter Savanah took the honor of pinning the lieutenant badge on her uniform.
