Special Feature
Police ask for your help on citizen survey

The Sioux City Police Department is strongly committed to the practice of Community Team Policing. We want to work with the community to identify problems and develop solutions to improve citizen safety and quality of life.

We are asking Sioux City community members take a few minutes to complete a survey with links located on the Sioux City Police Department Facebook page, the City of Sioux City Website, or by going to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Q3PW983.

The survey is meant to measure how safe citizens feel in their neighborhoods and how they feel SCPD employees are performing their jobs.

The results will become a “scorecard” by which the Sioux City Police Department can monitor its performance. This information will be provided to our

Community Team Policing District Officers and Sergeants so the Department may serve you better.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the Sioux City Police Department’s Accreditation Assistant, Officer Mary Holzwarth, at 712-279-6423.

Rubbernecker Takes out Speed Camera

speed camera accidentA local woman was elevated to folk hero status after hitting the speed camera that was stationed at the Hamilton Blvd exit on I29 southbound. An investigation of the accident found that she was distracted by the rising waters of the river.

It is tough for drivers to not notice the Mighty Mo’ and the Big Sioux as they leave their banks near I29 but it is important that drivers stay focused.

“At least it was the speed camera and not an officer that was hit,” said Chief Doug Young speaking of the crash.

With the heavy construction on I29 and now the flood, the focus of drivers needs to be on driving. There has been an increase of accidents in construction areas.With tighter roads and uneven surfaces, the safety of construction workers and other motorists is dependent on undistracted driving.
