Black Hawk County Law Enforcement Association names Deputy of the Year

Posted: Updated:

Deputy Harold Oliver is the 2016 Black Hawk County Law Enforcement Association's Deputy of the Year, Sheriff Tony Thompson announced Monday.

“Harold is genuinely one of the nicest guys I know… both inside and outside of work. He always tells me to have a great day, or to be safe out there. I can imagine if he’s this way with someone he barely knows, it would be great to work along side him," said a deputy who nominated him for the award.

According to a press release, he's also being recognized for his actions on May 12, when he held a person suspected of a shooting at a Kwik Star at gunpoint and directed "responding units to allow for a quick and life-saving response for the victim of that shooting."

“Deputy Harold Oliver’s commitment to his fellow officer, the public we serve, and his dedication to his duties in the Civil Division certainly make him an outstanding choice for this year’s Deputy of the Year. Deputy Oliver’s quick thinking and calm, tactical response demonstrate his exceptional caliber as an officer and represents the very highest of standards in the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office” said Thompson.
