Hi LOGgers! My name is Kelli Sells, LOG #36. It’s been 12 years since then and a lot has changed. I graduated from Clay High School in 2012. I went on to receive my bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and Homeland Security from MacMurray College in Jacksonville, IL. I was able to keep playing soccer while there and eventually found my calling in law enforcement. I joined Mishawaka Police Department in 2016. I’m currently assigned to the Special Victim’s Unit. People often ask how I can do this job. My answer is always my faith and the many life lessons I learned while attending LOG.

            While it is going to sound corny, I try to be the best person I can. I am faced with situations, stories, and victims I never could have imagined talking to. Many of which are things I didn’t know existed as a teenager and I was privileged to be blind to. LOG taught me (specially the obstacle circle), that things aren’t always how they seem in someone’s life. However, no matter the baggage they may carry, it has only made them into the person they are today. I am fortunate to be in a position to hold those accountable who need to be- while helping those without a voice.

            As we all know, today’s criminal justice system is often being tested. No matter which side you may fall on, I strive to treat others with love, as God treats us. Some days, this is easier said than done while speaking to people who appear to be monsters. Other days, my heart hurts for the victims in front of me. If I had something I wanted you all to take away from this, it’s that no matter what we may do or have happen to us, there is light at the end of the tunnel. On the hard days, remember the easy days. On the easy days, be thankful for the lessons brought by the hard days. I have learned over the years to be thankful for the life I was given (many years credited to my LOG experiences) I hope this finds all of you in a place of joy, strength and with someone to lean on during the days you are not strong (WEAK)…for I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry onnnnn…

 

With love,

Detective Sergeant Kelli Sells, LOG #36.
