sherrifNEK- The Caledonia County Sheriff’s Department has named their new Deputy of The Year and its Deputy Joseph Rossi. Rossi has been part-time with the department since 2014 and has done tremendous work.

 

Rossi had no intentions in winning any award he just did his job.

 

“I just work thats it, and work to serve them and the public and I got deputy of the year it surprised me it wasn’t a goal.” Said Joseph Rossi Caledonia County Deputy.

 

Before joining the law enforcement Rossi served 20 years in the Marine Core.

 

“This is my retirement gig, it allows me to serve the community and stay active and that’s what I do.”

 

He stayed humble as he accepted the award, but did have some appreciation for what he has done.

 

“I respect my leaders and I liked the fact that they did recognize me. I don’t demand it I just work.” Rossi continued.

 

If there’s one thing he loves most about his job, it’s the fact that he just gets to be out and about everyday.

 

“Just being out on the road just being out and interacting with the public constantly on the move I couldn’t sit behind a desk.”
