Sheriff Nate Dreckman new Badger State Sheriffs’ Association President
The Grant County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce the installation of Sheriff Nate Dreckman as the Badger State Sheriffs’ Association president. The Badger State Sheriffs’ Association (BSSA) is an organization of all 72 Sheriffs in Wisconsin. It exists to support the Office of Sheriff by providing training, resources, and protecting the Sheriff’s Constitutional Authority. “I am honored and privileged to be the President of this prestigious organization for the next two years and look forward to working with all the Sheriffs and our partners to continue protecting and serving our citizens,” stated Sheriff Nate Dreckman.
Sheriff Dreckman has been an active member of the BSSA since becoming Sheriff in 2012. Sheriff Dreckman has served various roles within the organization to include District Director, 2nd Vice President, and 1st Vice President. Over the past two years as 1st Vice President, he chaired the BSSA legislative committee. Sheriff Dreckman is very proud of the committee’s work during his time, especially the work done to improve Wisconsin’s emergency detention process.
Sheriff Dreckman stated, “We are in a unique time in history, as law enforcement has come under extreme scrutiny; however, we believe that law enforcement is still an honorable and noble profession. It’s apparent from the conversations we’ve had with our citizens that the public desires to have law enforcement continue protecting and serving our communities. Our goal as Sheriffs is the continual improvement of law enforcement services to our citizens. An integral part of this strategy is improved training for deputies, transparency, community engagement, and active legislative involvement. The Badger State Sheriffs’ Association strives to be at the forefront of making improvements in law enforcement.”
We are excited to have Grant County represented throughout Wisconsin during Sheriff Dreckman’s time as the Badger State Sheriffs’ Association president.
