was born October 7, 1981 in Iowa Falls. I lived with my mother
and my father and two brothers. Growing up my brothers and I
loved playing cops and robbers. I of course was always the cop,
and from then on I have always wanted to be an officer. I always
wanted to protect people, and be there for when I was needed. My
first meeting with a police officer was when I got a speeding
ticket my senior year of high school. I knew from that moment on
I wanted go into law enforcement.
I graduated from Iowa Falls High School in 2000. After high
school I stayed close to home and attended Ellsworth Community
College. I graduated from Ellsworth in 2002 with an AA degree in
criminology. I then attended UNI for 2 1/2 years and worked as a
security guard at College Square Mall. I enjoyed wearing the
badge and preparing for the real thing. I graduated from UNI
in the fall of 2004 with a BA in criminology.
While at UNI borrowed a finger printing kit from the Ackley Police
Department for a speech in Anthropology class. When I returned it
Chief Scallon asked if I was interested in becoming an officer
with the Ackley Police Department. I was interviewed and passed
the physical testing, barely, but I passed it. I took the rest of
the required testing and was hired on March 1, 2005. I
commuted back and forth from Cedar Falls to Ackley on a regular
basis until I began renting a house on Main Street in May 2005.
In September 2005 I became an official member of the community when I
bought a house on State Street.
am enjoying getting to know the people of the community.
With my German heritage and love of Sauerkraut I feel I will fit
right in. My long range plans include staying in Ackley and
serving the community the best I can. My interests are music,
playing the guitar, hanging out with friends, and meeting new
people. I also like movies, fishing because itís relaxing,
collecting rocks and coins. My prized possessions are my Bible,
my grandpaís sword, my motherís ring, and my dogs. I was in a
band when I was at Ellsworth, but we broke up when she joined the
army and I went to UNI.
Officer Stacey Kreimeyer
I was born,
raised, and still currently reside in the big city of Geneva. I
graduated from AGWSR High School in 2003 and decided to live at home
while I attended Hamilton Business College in Mason City. I
graduated from Hamilton College in April of 2005 with an A.A.S. in
after my college graduation, I was contacted by Chief Scallon with a
proposal of being an Ackley Reserve Police Officer. I soon
accepted, and in March of 2006 I became a Reserve Officer. As a
Reserve Officer I worked only a few times including Sauerkraut Days
and when other officers were on vacations, however, I was in haven
being in a uniform and in the patrol car.
came time to renew my physical test in February 2007, I was informed
that they would be accepting applications for a full-time officer.
I quickly jumped at the opportunity. After passing the physical
test, the interview, and the P.O.S.T. and M.M.P.I., I finally received
the handshake and was told welcome aboard. I was really
disappointed to leave my current job at Honk N' Hollar (diner in
Hampton) since I had been employed there for five years, however, they
accepted that I was finally doing what I went to college for.
2007, after riding along, watching and learning, I was ultimately a
full-time Ackley Police Officer. I attended Hawkeye Community
College from September 2007 to November 2007 where I received my law
always been interested in law enforcement. I'm not sure if it
was the show COPS or the CSI programs that I have watched over the
years. I do know that the possibility of something different
every single day will keep me around for a long time to come.
