“Support Staff Spotlight” is a weekly series that shines a spotlight on those that work behind the scenes in our area county departments that keep everything running smoothly. These individuals rarely get any attention (or credit?) but are vital to their respective departments. A new “Support Staff Spotlight” (formerly known as "21 Things You Might Not Know About Me") from one of our six-county coverage-area county departments will be published each Monday on DrydenWire.com.
BURNETT COUNTY -- This week, we shine the spotlight on Alicia Cederberg. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Alicia, she is the Public Safety Technology Specialist for the Burnett County Sheriff’s Office.
Before you read Alicia’s "21 Things You Might Know About Me," check out what Burnett County Sheriff Tracy Finch had to say about her:
"Alicia Cederberg is our Public Safety Technology Specialist. That is a catch all term that means she can do just about anything. She takes care of all things to do with our squad cars, equipment, technology and researches future technology options. She is determined to learn how to fix everything! She is also a computer whiz and helps with all of our computer systems. Alicia is a dedicated team player who is always willing to assist with anything. We are truly blessed to have her with the Burnett County Sheriff’s Office." — Sheriff Tracy Finch
