Deputy Receives Purple Heart Award

Deputy Chance Walkama, Sheriff Danny Glick (Doug Randall/TSM)

The Laramie County Sheriff’s Department recognized several agency members for outstanding service on Friday. That included a Purple Heart Award for Deputy Chance Walkama, who was shot by a suspect at the Fairfield Inn last November.

Walkama has since recovered and is back on active duty at the department. Sheriff Danny Glick recalled that Walkama had refused pain killers at the hospital and continued to be concerned about his fellow deputies and even the man who shot him. Glick said Walkama’s performance made him proud to lead such a group of people. Other award recipients were recognized for such things as saving the lives of prisoners who attempted to commit suicide at the jail as well as long-time service to the department. Glick himself received an award for 30 years of service at the award ceremony.
