According to the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office, two deputies have joined their ranks. They are Deputy Sheriff Alex Bakker and Deputy Sheriff Agustin Martinez. They tell us that both deputies began their careers and honorably served as officers of the Sioux Center Police Department.

Sheriff Dan Altena says the Sheriff’s Office personnel are very happy to now welcome them both to their law enforcement family at the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office. Altena says, “We look forward to your continued dedicated service to the citizens of Sioux County!”
