Tyrolean Michael Kohlgruber has always been a police officer at heart – even as head of the Wattens police. Now retired, he looks back on four eventful decades and describes, among other things, how he solved a crime almost in his sleep.
The last time I met the 60-year-old was about 40 years ago in Weer. Kohlgruber had given asylum to a stranded buzzard, which he had offered to a youth group. “I wanted to study biology,” he tells me now, decades later. However, the future prospects for biologists seemed bleak when his father drew his attention to a vacancy from the gendarmerie. “Okay, I told my dad, I’m applying,” Kohlgruber recalled.
