A New Sheriff in Sioux County


Jamie Van Voorst was sworn in today (Thursday) as Sioux County Sheriff.  This happened minutes after he was appointed by the county’s Board of Supervisors.  Van Voorst was a Chief Deputy in the Sioux County Sheriffs Department.  He will fill the remainder of the term of former Sheriff Dan Altena, and then will run for election to that post in November.

Van Voorst is sworn in by 3rd Judicial District Chief Judge Patrick Tott.

In attendance were Van Voorst’s colleagues (including Plymouth County Sheriff Jeff Te Brink and Le Mars Police Chief Kevin Vande Vegte), family, and friends.
