City of Cottage Grove's Statement on Senator Dan Schoen

Cottage Grove, MN – Nov. 9, 2017 – The City of Cottage Grove is aware of the allegations made against Senator Dan Schoen in his legislative role for the State of Minnesota. We take the allegations seriously, as we do all sexual harassment allegations. The City is not aware of any misconduct by Dan Schoen in his role as a police officer for the City of Cottage Grove.

However, due to the allegations made against Senator Schoen, the City has elected to assign him to administrative duties until the allegations have been investigated by the State. At the completion of the State investigation the Cottage Grove Police Department will investigate these allegations, as they would any other officer off-duty conduct, to determine if any city policy violation has occurred, which is standard procedure for the department.

An updated statement will be issued if new information becomes available.
