Newly sworn Petersburg Police Officer, Jim Kerr, arrived in Petersburg from Arizona June 3 and is settling into the community with his wife, Tina, and their two sons Nathan and Caleb.

Kerr served as a police officer in Kingman, Ariz. for nine years and said Alaska would be the only place he would move to.

“I never wanted to live anywhere else,” Kerr said. “If I was to leave Arizona, then I would go to Alaska.”

Kerr just happened to search through the Police One classifieds and found the position for Petersburg Police Officer.

“I researched the community and decided to apply,” he stated. “We are looking forward to becoming a part of the

community and raising our

children here.”

Kerr is an avid fisherman and hunter and says he is ready to try new recipes for seafood.
