Stalking order against police chief to be dismissed

Paperwork was filed in Cloud County District Court this morning to dismiss the protection from stalking order that had been filed against former Concordia Police Chief Chris Edin.
The original order was filed on Feb. 6 in District Court by Sara Heisen, an officer with the Concordia Police Department. In court documents, Heisen alleged that Edin had sexually harassed her and offered promotions in exchange for sexual favors. She indicated the protection from stalking order was needed because she was fearful of Edin.
Edin had been placed on paid administrative leave on Feb. 6, and resigned his position a week later. He has been replaced by Bruce Johnson, who was hired last week.
The order of dismissal filed this morning stated Heisen had indicated the action could be dismissed. Edin had not filed an answer or responsive pleading, but his counsel, Brenda Jordan, indicated there was no objection to the dismissal.
District Court Judge Guy Steier ordered the action be dismissed.
Jordan, Edin's attorney, said she had filed paperwork to contest the order, but that it was dismissed at the request of Heisen.
