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.

Big Sioux River Flood Control

Big Sioux River Flood Control

As a result of recent heavy rainfall north of Sioux City, the Big Sioux River is expected to continue to rise over the next several days. The levels within the Big Sioux River are expected to result in flood gate closures and will require that the City enact levee extension actions as detailed in the City Levee System and Flood Control Plan.

The extension actions associated with this plan require the additional temporary levee structures be constructed on River Drive in the Riverside area. The levee structure will only impact 3-5 houses in the area. Individuals living in these homes have been contacted directly to explain the impacts of this construction. If you have not been contacted you are not directly impacted by the construction of this levee extension.

The levee extension will be built in River Drive beginning today. River Drive will be closed to thru traffic from Goldie Avenue to Beck Street until Friday, June 27th. Your patience with this work is appreciated. Please contact the office of Public Works with questions at 279-6222.
