Civilian Employee of the Year


Civilian Employee of the Year 2019




During the Black Hawk County Law Enforcement Association’s annual Christmas Party, Sheriff Tony Thompson announced the Civilian Employee of the Year award to Booking Clerk Lynda Thompson.

Lynda is recognized as a subject matter expert in the jail division and is a field training officer in the booking clerk position.  She covers a lot of the overtime generated in booking to allow for others to have time off.  In fact, on the night of her recognition, she was covering a shift to allow a new booking clerk to attend the Sheriff’s Office Christmas Party.  “Her ability to communicate and demonstrate pride in her work… and instill that pride in the work of others is really what causes us to recognize Lynda this year.  Her efforts and support for her fellow employees goes above and beyond.” says Sheriff Thompson, “The fact that her peers recommended her for this award and her command staff also recognized her contributions speaks volumes about her positive impact on our agency.”
