Two Officers Named Police Sergeant

Two police officers

Two Sioux Center Police Officers have been named to the new sergeant positions within the police department. 

Kelli Willet and Jack Brundell were selected for the sergeant role and will begin January 1, 2024. 

This is a new position for the Sioux Center Police Department, and the sergeants will assist the chief with administration of the department, overseeing several specific areas, such as training, vehicles, report and video review, grants, and department technology. They will help with a new scheduling platform, new animal impoundment procedure, and new system documenting officer training, plus long term planning. The sergeants may act as Officer in Command in the absence of the police chief.

Koedam said he has begun working with Willett and Brundell to prepare for them to step into the role.

“Kelli and Jack have invested much into the Sioux Center Police Department and community over the years and I am excited to witness them take on the responsibilities of Sergeant,” he said. 

Willett, 39, has been an officer with the Sioux Center Police for 17 years. 

“We have great officers who are willing to work hard but yet have fun. I believe with solid leadership and the group of officers that we have, this department is going great places,” Willett said. “I love the aspect of teaching younger officers the job and helping them learn from my experiences. I know that they teach me a thing or two also. I look forward to working closely with Chief Koedam and Jack. I look forward to the newly formed organizational structure of the department.”

Brundell, 34, has been a full-time officer with the Sioux Center Police since 2017 and has been in law enforcement since 2012

“I like how every shift is different, we get to meet new people, and we have the opportunity to help people, sometimes on their worst day. I like working in Sioux Center due to the overwhelming amount of support from its citizens, businesses, and city council members towards first responders and the departments,” Brundell said. “We’re blessed to now have a police department that has structure with more than one supervisor role. This was a good career opportunity to advance, and I believe with my training and experience, I can be a good fit to help newer officers.”
