2019 Northern Region Officer of the Year Winner
Conservation Warden Paul Sickman, of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, has been named the 2019 Northern Region Officer of the Year.
Conservation Warden Sickman is an example of a well-rounded officer who effectively balances enforcement, education and community involvement. However, Sickman’s primary concern is ensuring that all boaters have a safe and enjoyable recreational boating experience while on the water. Sickman coordinates the Lower St. Croix River law enforcement meetings in an effort to facilitate collaboration and coordination between multiple law enforcement agencies. During the meetings, these law enforcement agencies address and resolve upcoming issues, coordinate efforts for events such as Operation Dry Water, and much more.
