On March 11, 2017 Officer Nelson was dispatched to a home for a medical emergency. The home owner subsequently wrote a letter stating this was the second family member they lost within the past 16 days. The letter continued by complimenting Officer Nelson for the professionalism and courtesy he showed toward the family in their time of need and also stated Officer Nelson returned with dinner for the family and “it made things just a little bit better”

Officer Nelson recognizes sometimes small acts of kindness and generosity can mean the world to those in a crisis situation.

I am proud to have officers willing to go above what is expected to serve the community and continue to improve interactions with residents of Galena.

“Service With Honor”
