Samuelson named officer of the year

Zionsville — Detective Josh Samuelson was named the Zionsville Police Department Officer of the Year for 2011.

Samuelson said he was excited when he heard the news.

“It was a huge honor,” he said. “I’ve been here for a couple of years, and this was just yet another pleasant surprise during my time here.”

Samuelson was recently promoted to detective during the Monday, Feb. 6, Zionsville Board of Police Commissioners.

ZPD Chief Robert Knox said Samuelson seemed like the right person to be recognized for the award.

“He’s an extremely professional, top-notch officer, which all of our officers are,” Knox said. “He has really gone above and beyond in all the reports he has completed and every task he’s been assigned. He has conducted himself in a superb manner since coming to Zionsville. That really speaks to both his promotion to detective and being named Officer of the Year.”

Samuelson spent several years at the Michigan City (Ind.) Police Department before joining ZPD.

“My favorite memory of being (with ZPD) was being named detective,” he said. “That has been a goal of mine since I was an officer in Michigan City.”

Samuelson said he loves his job and hopes it shows through his work ethic.

“I like staying busy and keeping busy,” he said. “My busiest days here are honestly my happiest days here.”

Samuelson said his goal is to stay in the investigations division.

“I would definitely like to stay with the investigations division for a while,” he said. “I would like to continue doing what I’m doing right now and would like to work some other cases.”
