Sabine Parish Sheriff Aaron Mitchell and the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office sadly report Deputy Adam Nelson (age-26) passed away on December 29, 2022.
Adam suffered a medical event while on vacation in Colorado with his family.
Adam worked for the Sheriff’s Office for almost 3 years. He started as a correctional officer, then patrol deputy, and quickly became a member of the Sheriff’s Tactical Narcotics Team and Special Operations Group (S.O.G.). Adam was also a member of the ATF Project Safe Neighborhoods Federal Task Force.
Adam’s passion for advanced, continuous law enforcement training and his tactical mindset caused him to excel in his narcotic and firearm investigations at the Sheriff’s Office.
Chief Deputy Brad Walker said, “Adam was deeply committed to his job and the success of the Sheriff’s Office; he inspired all of us to push ourselves to our full potential.”
Sheriff Mitchell asks everyone to pray for the Sheriff’s Office and Adam’s family, friends, and co-workers over the next few weeks. Adam will be sorely missed.
