Former Prior Lake police chief Mark Elliott became Northfield's new deputy chief of police in April, according to the city.
Elliott took the position following Mark Dukatz's retirement, according to Northfield's city administrator report in April. He lives in Farmington.
Elliott joined Prior Lake in 2015 after two decades with Bloomington Police and a stint on the Southwest Metro Drug Task Force board. He resigned in December from his Prior Lake post for reasons he and other city officials wouldn't specify.
Prior Lake this week was in the process of hiring a long-term replacement following several interim chiefs.
