Damn you, Dickinson Police Department!! How dare you try to keep people safe?!? 🙄 Thank you for everything you do!

I am sure that this is in responses to Tooz's new scooter program here in town. However, I will continue to require my CHILDREN to ride their electric scooters (and bicycles) on the sidewalks and crosswalks. These ordinances need to be revisited due to change in population, transportation options, and the growth of Dickinson, and I call on Mayor Scott Decker to lead these changes.

I would wreck myself on a scooter. I hope everyone rides safe, follows the rules and other motorist please watch out for these scooter riders. Please no one ruin the fun for others. Obey the law and be respectful

Wait, technically in order to legally ride these rent a scooter you have to technically get a bicycle license? Or the business owner has to have license for each scooter? Also if you ride at night you better bring your head lamp with you? I would definitely say that due to the new business of the rented scooters that laws should be expanded into detail pertaining to owned vs rented.

I realize the police department is just enforcing the city ordinance, but who's idea was it to put a 14 year old requirement on non- motorized scooter? These things are designed for little kids. Why can't they ride down residential sidewalks?

I need to report a young girl driving a pink motorized barbie Jeep on the sidewalk! She obviously wasn’t old enough to be licensed! Where are the police when you need them?? There is real crime happening out here people!

This town is circling the drain. First they take our dumpsters and now something as harmless as riding a bike or a scooter gives police reason to haras us. I cant walk to my car without greedy local government tryn to regulate n take money out of my pocket. #corrupt

Pretty much a rip off it took another dollar and I didn’t even ride it

Perhaps if you added the word “motorized” in the original list there would be less confusion?!

if anyone is caught enjoying their summer civil penalties will be incurred. That is all.

😂😂😂😂 the day my kid gets talked to by a cop for riding a scooter. I swear to Christ 😂😂

How is a municipal bicycle license acquired? I've never heard of this before

So.. they are parked at bars, perfect rides for bar hopping to cut down on drunk drivers.. but you can’t ride them intoxicated? Stupid rules

Sorry not getting a bicycle license you guys can get bent

Tracy Tooz look what you started! 😂

Gunnar Ebert use to think government overreach was a thing in large cities, till I found out you have to be 14 to ride a non-motorized scooter and need a bicycle license

These aren’t the best my first time trying this out and there all dead plus it took $1.75 and not once was I able to ride it

Ryan Fisher 🤔🤫

.

They've been parked at spur alot lately, made me wonder if they new they can still get dui.... imagine driving a scooter when ur lit up. Lol

Helmet on a scooter... can’t ride on a sidewalk... 14 years old!?!?! And a license is required?? For a scooter?!?! Who tf is behind this? I propose a rule that says from now on a brain capable of answering at least 5 elementary level questions is required to make rules. All those who’s second this motion say me.

When a town has city laws. We arent a city.

The scooots!!!

Does this even apply to a motorized scooter under 50 cc?

So u can’t ride down Villard when most of the scooters are parked on that road

Great job Facebook, I received this message at 7:02 am

**JUVENILE ARRESTS**

On June 6th, 2019 at approximately 4:30 PM, three juvenile males ranging in age from 16-17 YOA were arrested following a daytime residential burglary which occurred in the 600 block of 8th Street East of Dickinson. The juveniles had access to or possession of two CO2-powered (imitation) Airsoft-type weapons at the time of the arrests. All three juveniles were charged with C-Felony Burglary, one was also charged with A-Misdemeanor False Information to Law Enforcement in addition to the Burglary charge. All three were transported to the Youth Correctional Center in Mandan where they were lodged.

The nefarious activity of the youth in the neighborhood was observed by vigilant citizens whose reports to law enforcement were instrumental in the arrests. No one was injured, and the location of the burglary was not believed to be random or arbitrary.

So tired of seeing shit like this. Parents need to start parenting again. Start throwing the book at these kids so hopefully others will learn this kind of shit is unacceptable

Shiloh Martinez

Glad they got the little snot-nosed brats. Again, too much free time on their hands. Put them to work whether at home or community service. Don't give them so much free time to 'get bored'.

Great job PD

A great job goes out to the observant neighbors and then to law enforcement for apprehending the individuals while in the act of the crime.

They should have to help clean Dickinson up !!

Good job.

Thank you, Dickinson PD! Joel Walters

Nicole Keller

From Paul, now if they would make them haul about 10000 square bales maybe they would get there heads on straight.

Ya do the crime .... Ya do the time.

Hmm sounds like an epidemic of juvenile delinquents lately.

So basically if someone came home the kids would of acted like they had guns?
