Wednesday evening the CSU Police Department took time to

“Choosing who did the best of the best is hard to do,” said

Among the top awards given were five for Employee of the Year,

which were awarded to civilian Roswitha Stuckwisch, campus safety

officer Jon Paul Matzke, student officer Christopher Robertson,

officer Darren Martinez and officer Jason Meisner. Awards were

are, we can count on each other for anything.”
