Michigan State Police Detective Sergeant Sarah Krebs honored as a top cop under 40

MSP Honoree Det. Sarah Krebs

Sarah Krebs has made a name for herself.  The Michigan State Police announced that the Det. Sgt. Krebs was selected by the International Association of Chiefs of Police as one of 40 law enforcement professionals from around the world, under age 40, who demonstrated leadership and exemplified commitment to law enforcement.  Krebs was chosen for the association's 40 Under 40 Award for her efforts to find and identify lost and missing persons.  She will be honored at the association's annual conference in Philadelphia this week.  “The MSP prides itself in providing service with a purpose,” said Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue, Michigan State Police director.  “(Krebs) lives our mission and is passionate about helping the families of missing persons find closure."  She credited Krebs for development the Missing Persons Coordination Unit, which has led to the positive identification of more than 70 previously unidentified remains cases throughout the United States.  Krebs is credited with founding “Missing in Michigan,” an annual event which brings family members and law enforcement together to help resolve missing persons cases, as well as “ID the Missing,” a DNA collection program that assists in identifying previously unidentified human remains.  She is also an accomplished forensic artist whose composite sketches have led to the identification of numerous wanted persons in major cases around the state.   “Many families go years without answers as to where their loved one is,” said Krebs.  “Knowing I can help bring these families closure and peace of mind keeps me motivated.  I view each day as another opportunity to provide relief to loved ones of the missing.”  Krebs enlisted with the MSP in 2000, graduating as a member of the 119th Trooper Recruit School. Before being assigned to the missing unit in Lansing, she served at posts and task forces in the metro Detroit area.
