The Marshall County Crimes Stoppers presented the Outstanding Crime Fighter Award to Marshalltown Police Department Detective Brian Siegert at the Marshalltown City Council meeting on October 10, 2016. The award was present to Siegert in recognition of his outstanding service and commitment to the citizens of Marshalltown. The award was present by Mark Osmundson, Marshall County Crime Stoppers Chair and Marshalltown Police Chief Michael Tupper.

Marshalltown Police Chief Michael Tupper has these comments during the presentation of the award, “Detective Brian Siegert has served the Marshalltown community with pride and distinction for 14 years.  Brian has served the past 5 years as a detective assigned to the police department’s Special Services Division.”

“Over the past 5 years, Brian has worked several high profile cases.  Brian has done an exceptional job as a detective.  Brian is a dependable and knowledgeable team member.  He is a tenacious investigator who strives to ensure crime victims are served compassionately.  Brian has been a go to guy in many respects and can be counted upon to professionally serve his department and community each day.”

“In 2015, Brian was assigned a complicated investigation involving the sexual assault of a very young child.  This was a true “Who done it” case.  If not for Brian’s hard work, dedication and refusal to give up, this case would have gone unsolved.  Brian worked diligently with the victim, the victim’s family and several other agency partners to ensure that this case was not only solved but that the offender was held accountable for his actions.  Brian is extremely humble and will tell people that he was just doing his job.  However, Brian did more than just his job.  Brian went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure this heinous crime was solved.  We cannot put to words what Brian’s efforts meant for this case.  We can safely say that Brian made a difference.  Thanks to Brian’s efforts, a violent criminal offender is serving time in a State of Iowa penitentiary and our community is a safer place to live, work and call home.”
