I need prayers for my family. Two of the girls have returned home but will not tell the Police where or who my Granddaughter is with. I am totally heartbroken that this is the choice these girls have decided to make. I really hope and pray that my Granddaughter stays safe. I am happy for the families that have their girls back, now I hope they make the choice to help give us our girl back. 😪😪😪😪

Tate has been found

The two girls that returned home should be taken in for questioning on the other girl that's still missing.... Right after they got a much needed whooping!

Just want to say Thank-you to the ones who cared and shared this post to find the 3 girls. I am just Thankful they have all been found safe.

Thank you everyone for sharing . As one of the girls is my daughter. I never thought she would ever do this . Just want to thank everyone for sharing and helping .

Everyone share the crap out of this. I need my Granddaughter home and these families need their girls home too! God be with these three and return them home safely!

The 1st time I ever skipped. We got in wreck. When they called my mom. She was like no not my daughter she's in school. I was the only one hurt. Minor head wound need a few stiches. I had to talk to her on phone to prove it was me. From then on if I wanted to skip I just didn't go. She always knew when and where I would be. 😊

Sending prayers to everyone. I pray that those girls give up some information soon.

**IMMEDIATE RELEASE**

Roads in town are super slippery this evening. We are currently processing our 5th car collision within the last 45 minutes or so. Sanders are out, but please be mindful of rapidly changing road conditions. Allow yourself extra room for braking, and slow down!

And remember wash the shit they spray on the roads off your vehicle as soon as u can

Seriously ridiculous that grown adults need to be reminded how to SLOW down and drive safely in the snow EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. Quit driving like idiots and drive with caution!

And just like that, everyone forgot how to drive...

45 minutes of summer, and people forget how to drive in the winter 🙄

Maybe this is just my opinion but im thinking that having the city trucks driving around spraying that beat juice water or whatever the "ice met" liquid that smells horrible everywhere has something to do with it...... it doesn't melt snow at all, it just rust out our vehicles and makes a mess in my garage. Also theres no reason to wet down the road. Lots of money being wasted with city workers here and sounds like its creating crashes

Seriously, don't tailgate, just because you have AWD or 4x4 does not mean you can stop on ice......uggggg!

Two seasons. Winter and road construction!!! Drive safe 🙂

No it’s now we can tell whose from out of state.

Its “everyone forgets how to drive because of the first snow” season

Ok. First snow!!! Every body—IN THE DITCH!!!! Lmao!!’

Wow

I think I am in on the 5th one! Nobody is hurt, thankfully!

Amber Beth You werent kidding!

Shirley Buckman — check out our weather at home!

There are residents living there now that are not used to this kind of weather.

I thought most people were driving pretty good for the weather on my way home from work.

Be careful, nobody’s perfect, just try to be safe 😘

I am on 3rd Avenue west just watching fender benders looking for a place to happen. Crash boom.

Candy Baker Haagenson be careful!

It is the same here in Montana. They get there snow tires on AFTER THE SNOW STARTS Some people never learn. Lol

Dickinson Police Department - North Dakota

Throwback Thursday!

During the 1960s and 70s, the ambulance service was staffed by off-duty police officers from the Dickinson PD. In total, 10 officers served on the ambulance service for nearly 20 years. The drivers included Duane Wolf, Henry Weber, Frank Riesinger, Clarence Kolling, Tom Thompson, Jim Rice, George Grossman, Thomas Nass, Darrel Haag, and Pat Lynch. The officers took turns on staffing the ambulance with 2-man crews. All of the drivers were advanced first aid instructors, though they were commonly met on-scene by a doctor. In the late 1970’s, the city commission debated whether or not to privatize the ambulance service. After some debate, it was decided that the city would no longer operate the service. In 1982, the Dickinson Ambulance Service was formed, transferring the ambulance duties from the police department to a private company. Frank Riesinger recalls that in the 18 years of driving the ambulance, the entire staff never had a single patient die on them enroute to the hospital!

Dave Wallace was neglected to be listed here. He was on the service when it was run by the PD also. He ran many runs with the above listed personnel. O2 & gasoline were the treatments of the day. 😉

Technically. It was 1981
