Chippewa County Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk says mistakes were made before a sex offender was placed in New Auburn last fall. The sheriff says he failed to fully communicate with people before David Hager was placed in their neighborhood. Kowalczyk says his department is making sure that people living nearby are safe. He met with the public Monday night telling people Hager can’t leave his home without a chaperon and is under almost constant surveillance. Hager served time for abusing children.
