DULUTH, MN. (KBJR) - It’s a first for the Duluth Police Department as they welcomed a family member of one of their own Friday.

Officer Angela Robertson and daughter Maddy Robertson are the mother-daughter duo helping serve and protect the community.

As of 2 p.m. Friday, Maddy Robertson was sworn in as a Duluth Officer.

Her mom, Officer Angela Robertson has worked for DPD since 2009 and has served in numerous roles.

“Having my daughter work in the same department I do is humbling. Policing is a male-dominated profession and it’s an honor to have Maddy’s resiliency, strength, and selflessness be part of DPD,” said Angela Robertson. “Maddy continues to make me proud, and I’m beyond happy for her as she kicks off her career.”

Maddy graduated from Fond du Lac with a law enforcement and criminal justice degree in 2020 and was a Community Service Officer for two years with the Duluth Police Department. She’s excited to start her career with her mother as a mentor.

“I’m excited to be able to join the Duluth Police Department and not only follow in my mother’s footsteps but also create my own path of building relationships with the community and serving to the best of my ability,” said Maddy Robertson.
