Best wishes in your retirement Greg.

Congratulations to Chief Deputy Greg Torgrim as he brings his 31 years in law enforcement to a close. Greg began his law enforcement career with the Ossian Police Department and the Decorah Police Department. In 1990 he was hired as a deputy with the Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office. In 2002 he was appointed by Sheriff Leon Bohr to serve as his Chief Deputy. When Sheriff Dan Marx took office in 2015, Greg was reappointed to Chief Deputy. Greg’s knowledge, expertise and sense of humor will definitely be missed!


The roads are becoming very slick here in Winneshiek County. PLEASE use extreme caution while driving.

Be careful on the roads tonight.
