The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is announcing that Conservation Officer Tyler Brock, who serves in Porter County, was selected as the 2017 District 10 Officer of the Year.

Brock, a six-year veteran of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources--Law Enforcement Division, graduated from Valparaiso High School in 2008 and then earned an associate’s degree in conservation law enforcement from Vincennes University.

Brock first served two years with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources-Law Enforcement Division as a water patrol officer, then returned to Indiana and in 2011 was appointed an Indiana Conservation Officer.

“Brock is an extremely dedicated officer who has held many extra duties in addition to his daily patrol responsibilities,” DNR said. “He is a very dedicated public information officer, field training officer, and Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) operator.”

When off-duty, Tyler enjoys spending time with family, fishing, hunting and restoring vintage aluminum boats.

The District Officer of the Year Award was voted on by all officers serving in District 10.

This award not only gives him local recognition but will make him eligible to compete against nine other officers, from across the state, for the annual Pitzer Award, named for Indiana Conservation Officer James D. Pitzer, who was shot and killed in the line of duty while checking rabbit hunters on Jan. 1, 1961.
