According to the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Sheriff Caleb Haverdink was promoted to the rank of patrol sergeant earlier this month.
Haverdink was appointed to the position of deputy sheriff at the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office in April of 2007 by Sheriff Dan Altena.
In addition to his regular patrol duties Haverdink has experience in specialized areas including, Critical Emergency Response Team (CERT) leader; Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) and the area multi-agency Drug Task Force. Haverdink will soon be a certified Taser instructor as well.
Captain Jamie Van Voorst says Haverdink has shown great leadership abilities and is well respected by his co-workers; not only at the sheriff’s office, but also with the numerous area law enforcement agencies. Van Voorst says Deputy Haverdink has demonstrated an attitude of helping others first. He says Sheriff’s Office Command Staff are confident he will continue to carry this out in his new position.
