MSA Volunteer of the Year Award

We are excited to share that Reserve Deputy Michael Fatland received the Minnesota Sheriffs’ Association (MSA) Sheriff’s Volunteer of the Year Award presented to him at the 134th Annual MSA Winter Conference and Awards Banquet in Alexandria, Minnesota on December 19, 2019.

This award is presented to a civilian who volunteers their time in support of the Office of Sheriff and community performing in such a manner that is far and above the average over a sustained period of time.

Reserve Deputy Fatland was sworn in as a Reserve Deputy Sheriff by Sheriff Bill Nevin in 2000. Since that time, he has logged roughly 7,000 volunteer hours for our office, working nights, weekends, and holidays, performing every duty we have assigned to our Reserve staff members.

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office is forever grateful for the service Reserve Deputy Fatland continues to provide.  We are also grateful to his wife and young son who have shared him with us over all these years.  Reserve Deputy Fatland is a tremendous asset to public safety.

“I am proud to have Reserve Deputy Fatland on our team alongside all of our amazing volunteers that take pride in providing public safety to our community,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.

Thank you, Mike, and congratulations on this well-deserved award!
