Officer William Allen Mathews graduated from Pine Island High School, attended Rochester Community College and received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Law Enforcement from Winona State University. 

Officer Mathews became a licensed officer with the Zumbrota Police Department and worked part time with the Olmsted and Goodhue County Sheriff's Offices as well. 

During his nine years with the Wayzata Police Department Officer Mathews was a firearms instructor, a field training officer, and a reserve coordinator. 

We continue to honor his service and hold Officer Mathews and his wife and son, in our hearts and prayers.  

Per the family's request and approval, BtBL will send all proceeds of this fundraiser to the Officer Bill Mathews Memorial Fund.
