 Loudenbeck Names First Responder of the Year

Madison – Wisconsin State Representative Amy Loudenbeck (R-Clinton) has chosen Walworth County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Nelson to receive the First Responder of the Year Award for the 31st Assembly District.

Deputy Nelson has been serving Walworth County since 2001. In addition to his patrol duties, Deputy Nelson takes on extra responsibility by assisting with outreach programs and training. He serves as Community Resources Officer for the Walworth County Sheriff’s Department and is involved in the “Operation Click” and National Night Out programs.  Deputy Nelson has also been an integral part of security and active shooter response training for local school and county personnel.

“Deputy Nelson has proudly served the Walworth County Sheriff’s Department for 18 years. His actions show he truly cares for those who live, work and visit our local communities. I’m thankful for his service and am pleased to recognize his unwavering dedication to Walworth County,” said Loudenbeck.

October is First Responder Appreciation Month, and today the State Assembly honored First Responder from each of the 99 Assembly Districts during their session day. Deputy Dan Nelson and Sheriff Kurt Picknell attended the ceremony with Rep. Loudenbeck at the State Capitol for this well-earned recognition.
