The Moorpark Rotary Club has named an eight-year veteran of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department as the city's Officer of the Year for 1995. Senior Deputy Ron Nelson accepted the award at a recent luncheon. Nelson has been working with the Moorpark division since 1990. He works in Moorpark's detective division and with the Gang Suppression Unit. His supervisor, Sgt. Terry Hughes, said Nelson stood out not because of a single thing, but because of his "day-to-day workload."
