We ensure the safety of officers and the community every shift we are on.
I’ve wanted to be a police officer my entire life. I grew up in small town Minnesota and continued my education at South Dakota State. After college I knew that South Dakota was where I wanted to live. I was immediately interested in Sioux Falls and the direction the city was heading in. Sioux Falls had a small town feel to it but was much larger than I even knew. The department has many different directions an officer can take once here. In 2018 I gained a K9 partner who has been with me ever since. We assist numerous different units within the department including SWAT, Narcotics, and Patrol. We ensure the safety of officers and the community every shift we are on. As I continue my career, I have realized that Sioux Falls was the perfect choice for me. The region is perfect to raise my family. Whether that be camping, hunting or enjoying a baseball game, there is always something going on. Sioux Falls still has that small town atmosphere where I am greeted by the community at nearly every corner, but is large enough that no two shifts are the same.
