Lieutenant; 2015 NIJ LEADS Law Enforcement Officer
Madison Police Department

Madison, WI

Lieutenant Nelson is currently in charge of the Professional Standards and Internal Affairs Office within the Madison (WI) Police Department, a department of approximately 450 commissioned and 150 civilian employees. Having never been to the IACP Conference previously, Lieutenant Nelson came away from the event very impressed; with the major take away being the importance of using data and research to make departments more efficient. After the conference, Lieutenant Nelson contacted an academic researcher at a college in Wisconsin and explained his plan to implement a domestic violence initiative that targets persons convicted of a crime. Lieutenant Nelson and the researcher plan on beginning research and discussions in January 2016.
