Today we rolled out our tribute to all cancer survivors and victims. This regular patrol fleet car is decorated to show our dedication as a department to raising awareness and finding a cure for all forms of cancer. This project is being done in connection with the "No Shave November" fund raiser being conducted with our officers. The Sioux City Police Officers Association and our officers will be donating our proceeds to The June E Nylen Cancer Center at the conclusion of the fund raiser.
ALL ALARM OWNERS (business & residential) within city limits are required to have an alarm permit with the City of Sioux City. All permits expire on December 31st of every year. **Beginning this year, Sioux City Customer service will begin taking permit payments instead of the Sioux City Police Department. Please be aware that the renewal invoices will look different but will cover the same permit. If you have any questions please contact the Alarm Coordinator Juanita at (712)279-6360.
The Sioux City Police Department values your feedback. Please take this short survey so we can better serve our community and meet the needs of its members.
Officer Calvin Chang was sworn in this morning as the newest member of our department. Officer Chang is also the last officer to be hired by Chief Young, who's last day is today. Officer Chang will be attending the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy starting on Monday. Good luck and welcome!
