Deputy Greg Gleason, a 21 year veteran, received the Truttman Family OWI Enforcement Recognition. He made 72 OWI arrests this year.
The award is given in honor of Sergeant Wayne Truttman, who was killed in the line of duty in 1973, and his son, James, who was killed by a drunk driver in 1998.
"Like every officer," said Deputy Gleason. "I go out there to do my job and do it well. It just so happens that I got an award. But every officer out there is just as deserving of an award for doing their job each and every day too."
Gleason also won the award in 2012.
Over the past year, Brown County sheriff's deputies have made more than 500 OWI arrests.
