Longest Serving Sheldon Cop To Retire

Sheldon, Iowa — The longest-serving police officer in the history of the Sheldon Police Department will be hanging up his gun belt at the end of this month, capping off a 32-year career of protecting and serving the citizens of Sheldon. 

Officer Scott DeGoei was honored  by the City two years ago for having been on the department for thirty years. At that time he told KIWA that his work with the Drug Task Force had been one of the highlights of his career, although it could be highly frustrating at times.

He told us how the job had changed since he came on-board in 1987.

June 30th is scheduled to be Officer DeGoei’s last shift as a Sheldon Police Officer before he heads off into retirement. He started patrolling Sheldon’s streets on June 1, 1987.

The City of Sheldon has scheduled a retirement coffee to honor DeGoei for his 32-years of service. That coffee is scheduled for 5:00 to 7:00 Wednesday evening, following the city council meeting, and will be held in Council Chambers at the Sheldon Community Services Center. The public is invited to attend.
