As we raise the flags from half staff today, we are taking a moment to reflect on the events of the past several weeks. All of us witnessed the worst of humankind and the evil that is unfortunately present in our world. Gunmen were able to commit mass homicide on nearly a dozen police officers, and shook the foundation of our country. But instead of fear and uncertainty overwhelming our communities like they may have wished, something else has happened instead. We have come together as a country and as a community, law enforcement and citizens alike, and said to ourselves "We are in this together. We care about one another. We all wish to live in peace and harmony". That common-ground is what binds us all together.

Here in Dickinson, these past few weeks have been witness to so many acts of kindness and compassion by the community towards our department that leave us humbled, thankful, and determined as ever to serve you as proudly and professionally as possible. From the baked goods from church groups and families, to the thank you cards and smiles, to the meals donated by Pizza Hut, Buffalo Wild Wings, and others, to the "Cups for Cops" lemonade stands, to the simple "thank you's" and "stay safe" from the people we meet, we are forever grateful to be serving such a caring and compassionate community. In return, we recognize the importance of honoring our oath and commitment to you, to protect and serve, unsullied in our morals and ethics, and protecting the rights of all. We dedicate ourselves daily to integrity, respect, and teamwork. Together, we are continuing to make Dickinson a safe and vibrant community for others to model.

On behalf of all the men and women of the Dickinson Police Department, THANK YOU for being a community we are proud to serve!

Sergeant Dave Wallace Retires

New public safety software goes “live” at DPD

After about four months of configuration and testing, Dickinson PD went “live” with its newest public safety software, Zuercher Technologies, on Tuesday, February  2nd. Zuercher offers a more robust and stable product than the department’s previous vendor. For example, officers and dispatchers are now able to see the exact GPS location of patrol vehicles using Automatic Vehicle Locators (AVLs), which will assist with response time and increase officer safety. Zuercher Technologies, which is based in Sioux Falls, SD, was the sole bidder for the department’s RFP in 2015. The company has hundreds of law enforcement clients around the country, as well as numerous agencies in North... read more
