Retired Crete Police and Fire Commissioner, Dale Nelson, was honored at the Village board meeting on Monday night.
“I want to thank you for your service to the Village,” Crete Police Chief, Scott Pieritz said. “I know it can be a thankless job with long hours and no compensation, so I want to thank you for your work.”
Mr. Nelson served as a Crete Police and Fire Commissioner for 20 years and was involved in the hiring of the current chief of police. Mr. Nelson’s family and friends, as well as a few officers, were present to wish him well.
