Husband, father, police chief, philanthropist, neighbor: Walter Hause was known by all these titles in the North St. Paul community during his years spent serving the city.
For those less familiar with North St. Paul history, Hause was the village’s first uniformed police officer, taking up duty in 1940. He served as the chief of police until 1955, when he suffered a heart attack while on duty.
This year, for the first time, Chief Hause was included in several law enforcement memorials across the state, including the Law Enforcement Memorial Association’s ecumenical service honoring police officers who gave their lives in the line of duty.
