Photographer(s): Sarah Trybula/ST-Photography and John Prusak/Bark River Photography

Officers: Chris, Dale and Ben Zawislan

Duty calls and sometimes we follow in one of our parents footsteps, as these two sons did in the law enforcement field. As a gift before Dale's retirement of 24 years in law enforcement; photographers Sarah Trybula and John Prusak were asked to capture the bond of a father and two sons with a stunning image of the three of them. 

Middle: Dale Zawislan began his career in law enforcement in 1992 after being hired in the Village of Arpin, WI. While serving as a Marshall; Dale received his Police Science degree at Mid-State Technical College in June of 1994. Prior to full-time employment, Dale served several communities as a part-time Police Officer including: The City of Nekoosa, Town of Rome, and the Village of Port Edwards, WI; he also served as a Village Constable in the Village of Auburndale, WI. In February of 1994, Dale was hired as a full-time Police Officer in the City of Nekoosa. Ten years later, Dale accepted a job in the City of Pittsville as Chief of Police, where he currently remains employed.  He is retiring August 2016 after 24 years in law enforcement.

Left: While Chris Zawislan attended college he was hired as a Wood County Reserve Deputy in 1996. The following year he was hired as a part-time Police Officer in the Town of Rome, WI. In 1999, Chris accepted a job with the Wisconsin State Patrol, where he currently remains employed.

Right: In 2011, Ben Zawislan was hired as Village Constable for the Village of Auburndale, while attending college.
