As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A doctor? An astronaut? A firefighter?

Our guest, in today’s Across the Table segment, always dreamed of being a police officer. And while that choice wavered a bit when it came time to select a major in college, he never strayed far from his original path and today he is the chief of the Sioux Falls Police Force. Ashley Thompson caught up with him recently at JJ’s Wine, Spirits & Cigars.

At JJ’s they like to say they provide “an enhanced adult beverage experience” and we think that’s just perfect to sum up the great food and drink and the great people you’ll run into at JJ’s Wine, Spirits and Cigars. They’re located at 3000 West 57th Street in Sioux Falls. you can find out more about their specials and events, by checking out their website at
