Deputy Matt Reams was honored as the 2015 Deputy of the Year for the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Department on Friday.

The announcement was made during the Black Hawk County Law Enforcement Association’s annual Christmas Party yesterday evening.

Deputy Reams was recently named the Team Chief of the newly formed Water Safety Patrol, and is currently assigned as an agency armorer and firearms instructor.

Sheriff Tony Thompson made the announcement Friday. “His tenure, natural leadership abilities, coordination skills, and his quiet, calm demeanor certainly make him worthy of this honor”, says Sheriff Thompson in regard to selecting Reams for the award.

Reams has had an impressive tenure with the sheriff's office, having been a deputy with Black Hawk County since 1994.
