Officer Jeffry Nelson
One of the newer officers in the Syracuse Police Department, Jeffry Nelson, is already making a positive impact. A resident recently complimented him for being competent, compassionate, and helpful when responding to a traffic accident. We have witnessed him employing these attributes as he has interacted with citizens and strived to keep Syracuse safe.
For him, the camaraderie at the Syracuse Police Department stands out. He appreciates his colleagues' support in succeeding in this role and says, “They really are the best!”
Officer Nelson previously worked at the Davis County Sheriff’s Department for almost six years. He graduated from the Police Academy and was recognized with the “Highest Shooter Award” for having the highest cumulative score in handgun training.
Beyond the badge, his adventurous spirit has compelled him to live in Alaska chasing the allure of adventure and the Northern Lights, to traverse America coast-to-coast three times and Canada twice, and to pursue varied outdoor activities from snowboarding at Brighton to fly fishing in Island Park. He will also boldly declare pineapple belongs on pizza, Coke is better than Pepsi, Rocky Road Ice Cream is the superior flavor, and canines make the best companions.
Officer Nelson - your dedication to Syracuse City does not go unnoticed, and we are thankful for your hard work.
