WPD's Captain Gutknecht receives Lone Eagle Award

Gutknecht Final - CopyCongratulations to Captain Steve Gutknecht of Williston Police Department for receiving the Lone Eagle Award!

The Lone Eagle award is an honor presented annually to an active and a retired North Dakota Peace Officer, each of whom, in the eyes of their comrades, has contributed guidance, inspiration, and support throughout their career as a law enforcement official in the State of North Dakota.

Retired FBI agent Herb Eckenroth, who worked in North Dakota for many years, created this award in 1979 to recognize a North Dakota Peace Officer who “…has shown incorruptible soundness or moral character and faithful adherence to ethical principles.”

Congratulations Captain Gutknecht!
