C.J. Obradovich, 23, is the newest member of the Minden Police Department.
Originally from Omaha, Obradovich has been in Nebraska his entire life. He first considered a career in law enforcement in seventh grade.
“We did a forensics ex- periment in my science class,” Obradovich said. And that put the idea in his head.
After high school, Obra- dovich attended the Univer-
sity of Nebraska-Kearney, earning a degree in criminal justice in May of 2011.
Shortly after graduation he found out about an open- ing with Minden PD, vacated by Kevin Klahn, who took a job with Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department.
Obradovich said the pro- cess was “pretty easy” and included a background check, criminal history, and inter- view. Minden Police Chief James Huff added, “We also
talked to some people who knew him.”
Obradovich has been going through Minden’s field train- ing program, which Chief Huff said is intended to “keep him under my arm and teach him some things.”
