"This is my bread and butter right here," said Officer Bevan "Butch" Blauert as his squad approached Hennepin & Lake. "If it's in the area, I like to own it. I like to take the call."
Blauert is Uptown's day beat officer, and he recently won the police department's Officer of the Year award.
While out on patrol in June, Uptown UPS store owner Judy Longbottom congratulated him.
