The Kane County Sheriff's Office in St. Charles recently announced the hiring of its first social worker to serve the community under the sheriff's new Special Victims Team.

Social worker Nicole Krupp accepted the position on Nov. 16 and began taking a caseload of victims affected by some of the most impactful types of crimes.

 

Krupp also decided to launch a holiday donation drive to benefit Hesed House and PADS homeless shelters, along with domestic violence shelters, Mutual Ground in Aurora and the Community Crisis Center in Elgin.

She was able to gather more than $16,000 in cash donations and almost $10,000 in donated goods to benefit these essential groups in just a few weeks.

Krupp will continue to serve under Sgt. Brandon McKiness' lead in the new unit of the Sheriff's Office Investigations Division, which investigates serious crimes against minors, the senior community, domestic violence victims, and sex crimes.
