A HUGE thanks goes out to our friends on the Badlands Board of Realtors for a gracious donation to the department! The Realtors conducted a fundraising drive, which resulted in over $12,000. A check was presented to the department this morning during the board's regular meeting.

The funds will be used to purchase t-shirts for this year's DARE graduates, as well as fund the department's transition to external vest carriers. The vest carrier project has been years in the making, and will allow officers to move heavier items (handcuffs, ammunition magazines, etc) onto the vest and hopefully save on back and hip problems. In addition, the external carriers will allow for upgraded "Level III" kevlar bulletproof panels, which can stop higher calibers of handguns.

We again thank the Badlands Board of Realtors for their partnership with the community, and helping ensure the safety of our officers!

Dickinson Press articles of our notorious Nightwatchman of the 1910s, Thomas McDonough.

Crime in Dickinson in the early 1900s was somewhat similar to what it is today; thefts, speeding motorists, vagrant complaints. Several articles from the Dickinson Press during this time period frequently mention Nightwatchman McDonough and his determination to keep the streets of Dickinson safe. Only a month into his job, McDonough was roughed-up by several individuals while attempting to make an arrest. His suspect fled, but all three who interferred with the arrest were later located and fined. McDonough was assured that if he continued to work diligently, he would have the good graces and backing of the public. This seems to have set the tone for McDonough's career.
