Sioux Falls Police Change Downtown Patrolling

Sioux Falls Police Change Downtown Patrolling

Sioux Falls Police are making changes to how they patrol the fast-growing downtown area.

Captain Richard Miller with SFPD says, with more residents moving downtown, an increased nightlife and a recent citizen’s survey showing some residents were afraid of going downtown at night, they’ve decided to make some changes.

Now, during each shift there will be liaison officers that will focus primarily on the downtown area. These officers will be orchestrating foot and bike patrols, as well as communicating with businesses in the area.

Miller says this decision is not based on an actual increase in crime downtown.

“This isn't being done because we've recognized that there is an issue downtown or there's been an increase in crime downtown. It's really being done because we want to keep it the safe environment that we already believe it is,” Miller said.

Coming up later on KELOLAND News, we will get reaction from people that use downtown everyday about the extra emphasis on safety.
