GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- A Green Bay police officer is being honored for making a lasting impact on the community.
The Green Bay Rotary Club will award Officer Aaron Walker for his excellence in Public Safety.
Officer Walker was nominated by the Green Bay Police Department.
“Officer Walker personifies excellence in public safety and community service,” said Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith. “He not only has dedicated his life to this country and community, he continues to serve others, especially our youth.”
Before Officer Walker's law enforcement career, he served in the United States Army for six years and became part of the Green Bay Police Department in April of 2015. As a night shift officer, he is a peer leader and was selected as a "field training officer." When Officer Walker is not training, he spends time at Washington Middle School having lunch with students and helping them with problems at school.
Night Shift Capt. Todd LePine describes Officer Walker as “an individual who does the right thing for the right reasons, has qualities which make him an unselfish person and a tremendous employee.”
Officer Walker will receive the award Monday in Green Bay.
The award recognizes those who exemplify the rotary motto of "Service Above Self."
