Corporal Robert Nicholson died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 during an interview with a COVID-19 positive suspect in the 100 block of Robyn Avenue in Henryville.

Corporal Nicholson had served with the Clark County Sheriff's Office for over five years and had previously served with the Charlestown Police Department for three years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

Beginning in early 2020, due to the requirements of their job, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the United States contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic. Hundreds of law enforcement officers died from medical complications as a result of contracting the virus while remaining on duty and interacting with the community.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
