November 17 - We are thankful for Officer Chris Wuebker and the Decorah Police Dept. Officer Wuebker is a recipient of the 2017 Enrique S. Camarena Award, named after the DEA agent who was murdered in Mexico in 1985 while working undercover to fight the drug cartels. The award is presented each year to local law enforcement officers who best exemplify the qualities and principles for which Agent Camarena gave his life -- specifically, making their communities a safer place to live through drug prevention and enforcement efforts.

Officer Wuebker of the Decorah Police Department is one of two Iowa law enforcement officers to be honored for their commitment to reducing drug abuse.

Wuebker's award was presented by the US Attorney's offices and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Thank you to Officer Wuebker and the entire Decorah Police Dept.
