Nikki Schettle, law enforcement dispatcher at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Police Department, has been named the recipient of the May STAR Award.

She was nominated by Chris Tarmann, police lieutenant for the University Police Department at UW Oshkosh.

Portions of Schettle’s nomination follows:

“Nikki goes above and beyond in countless areas as a law enforcement dispatcher.

“Recently, she proved just how incredible she is when the University had a Clery Act review. Nikki and I spent weeks preparing for the review and I think that she did a spectacular job. She had to collect many different types of cases from each year, determine what they should be classified as (sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, simple assault, etc.), organize the documents and make it clear and easy to understand. These tasks took hours and included reading entire reports that were easily 30 pages long, analyzing the information, and constant communication with the Dean of Students Office. Nikki’s contribution to the Clery review was brilliant and she managed to put together an easy-to-read document in several weeks while she did her other duties which include non-stop dispatching, finances, building openings, record requests, general administrative services and loads of paperwork.

“Nikki is beyond impressive in her position and we are extremely lucky to have her on board. She’s a great dispatcher with many years of experience which is reflected in everything she does. She’s also a great person and she deserves this award. I think I speak for the entire University Police when I say that she’s an extremely kind, knowledgeable, organized, and valuable person here at the University Police Department.”
