Scott County Sheriff’s Office Employee Promotions

Scott County Sheriff Luke Hennen is pleased to announce the promotions of three Sheriff’s Office employees:  Corrections Officer Cassie Kelly has been promoted to Corrections Sergeant, Recreational Safety Deputy Jacob Edwinson to Patrol Sergeant, and Dispatch Supervisor Carrie Bauer to Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) Manager.  

Corrections Sgt. Cassie Kelly has been a Jail Corrections Officer with the Sheriff’s Office since 2012.  She has served in many roles including Field Training Officer, Left-In-Charge Officer, Key Team member, Training Officer, and Jail Programs Officer. In her new role, Sgt. Kelly directly supervises corrections staff, jail operations and activities.  Sgt. Kelly attended Minnesota State University Mankato and has a degree in Corrections with a minor in Sociology.  

The Scott County Jail is a direct supervision facility that houses an average of 130 inmates per day who have been arrested and are awaiting trial or who have been convicted of a criminal offense and are sentenced to serve time in jail.  The Jail employs over 60 correctional and nursing staff who are responsible for facility safety and security, and maintaining the health and well-being of the inmates.

Patrol Sgt. Jacob Edwinson joined the Sheriff’s Office in 2017 as a Sheriff’s Deputy.  Over the years, he has served as a Field Training Officer, Drug Recognition Expert / Standardized Field Sobriety Test Instructor, Crime Scene Team member, and most recently, Recreational Safety Deputy.  In addition to performing the full range of duties of a Sheriff’s Deputy, Sgt. Edwinson now directly supervises and assists deputies patrolling our roads and waterways and handles administrative duties for patrol during his assigned shifts.  Sgt. Edwinson holds a B.A. in Law Enforcement from Minnesota State University, Mankato.  He has also completed the Minnesota Sheriffs' Association's Institute for Credible Leadership Development (ICLD) program.  The Sheriff’s Office Patrol Unit is comprised of 18 deputies and 4 sergeants, with special assignments that include Recreational Safety, Community Engagement, K9, and a Crime Scene Team.  This unit is also responsible for providing 24/7 law enforcement services, including patrolling all waterways and recreational trails, to the almost 25,000 residents of the 10 townships, the city of Credit River, and assistance to the 7 city police departments. 

PSAP Manager Carrie Bauer started at the Sheriff’s Office as a Dispatcher in 2010 and has been a Dispatch Supervisor for the past 6 years.  In her new role, she oversees the operations of our 9-1-1 Dispatch Center.  Carrie attended South Central Technical College in Faribault and has an Associate degree in Office Systems with an IT Help Desk Certificate.  

The 9-1-1 Dispatch Center is located at the Law Enforcement Center in Shakopee and serves over 148,000 residents of Scott County.  Falling under the Sheriff’s Office Communications Division, there are currently 19 full-time dispatchers and 4 full-time supervisors who take an average of 250,000 calls a year.  They provide 9-1-1 dispatch services for all our cities in Scott County, including 9 law enforcement agencies, 8 fire departments, and 5 ambulance services, and are also responsible for activating the Scott County Warning System.  This division also operates and maintains the 800 MHz radio system for all law enforcement, fire departments, and emergency medical services, as well as Public Health, Public Works, and public transit within the county.

“It’s my pleasure to promote Sgt. Kelly, Sgt. Edwinson and PSAP Manager Bauer,” said Sheriff Hennen. “These individuals have gone above and beyond during their careers to serve our community and the Sheriff’s Office is very proud of them.  I look forward to watching them grow in these leadership positions.”
