Meet the Guest

Kelly Ducak has been serving in Law Enforcement for the past 16 years in Northern Illinois. She first aspired to become a detective because of her love for reading all things mystery as a child. Kelly moved a lot growing up for her father’s career in the Navy, and private sector, which taught Kelly how to adapt quickly to any situation. After graduating High School in Red Wing, Minnesota, Kelly attended St. Cloud State University, where she obtained her Criminal Justice degree. Hoping to satisfy her love for traveling, Kelly started her Master’s Degree by attending the Inter-University in Dubrovnik, Croatia, where she studied victimology for the summer. After becoming the victim of a sexual assault, while studying in Dubrovnik, Kelly returned home and entered the law enforcement field. Today, Kelly is a Sergeant with her police department, a mother of three children, and currently pursuing her Doctoral degree in Emergency Management.
