When is not working, family members said Swanson enjoys spending time with his 4 year-old daughter Haylee and doing work in the wooded area near his home.
Working in public service is something that runs in his family. His brother Benjamin is a sergeant at the Geneseo Police Department. Swanson’s father, Christian Swanson, said the family could not be more proud of both boys.
“As you can imagine his family is very proud of him,” said Christian.
