The competition involves narcotics detection, article searches, and tracking.

Nicely done fellas!

The Dickinson PD is officially a "Project Find Safe" agency!

Project Find Safe is a grant project of the Minot State University to spearhead the national Project LifeSaver initiatives with North Dakota agencies. The programs equip agencies with training and technology to assist in locating “at risk” individuals who are prone to the life-threatening behavior of wandering. The technology can outfit a known “at risk” citizen with a condition such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, or autism with a wristwatch-style worn transmitter. Law enforcement is then trained and equipped with a locater device. If the citizen wanders off, law enforcement can be called to use the technology to find the citizen quicker than with traditional search and rescue methods.

For more information or to enroll a loved one in the program, contact Sgt. Brandon Stockie at 701-260-7804 or email at brandon.stockie@dickinsongov.com . Additional information about the program can be viewed by clicking the link below.

**FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE**

Over the past two weeks Dickinson has been experiencing a rash of industrial business burglaries occurring in northeast commercial area of the city. In total, there were 8 businesses burglarized since September 9th. The burglaries were consistent in that they all occurred in the early morning hours, forced entry was used to gain access and mostly cash was taken. The Dickinson Police Department (DPD) has been working diligently with limited evidence to identify and arrest the person(s) responsible.

Covert stationary surveillance of industrial areas was organized by DPD detectives. At approximately 0130hrs on Sunday, September 20th a suspect, later identified as ROY EDWARD NORRIS (47yoa), was observed lurking on foot east of Walmart. NORRIS made his way JP Steel and Supply (124 24th St. East) where he attempted to force entry into the business through a rear door. When confronted by officers, NORRIS fled on foot and after a short foot pursuit was taken into custody and arrested.

NORRIS was tied to all 8 area business burglaries. He was charged with alleged Felony Burglary and False Information to Law Enforcement, with additional counts of Burglary pending. NORRIS also had two active Felony arrest warrants, one out of Kentucky and the other out of Tennessee. He is currently being held at the South West Multi-County Correctional Center (SWMCCC).

NORRIS has a history of Burglary and is believed to be from the Florida area. It appears he was only passing through Dickinson where he had been staying for the past few weeks at a local motel.

Thank you Dickinson PD! When I see what’s happening in Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland and other places where they’ve taken the authority away from the police dept. We appreciate and support our law enforcement!!

Thank you Dickinson Police Department!! 😊🙌🏻👍🏻👌🏻 We appreciate your hard work, dedication and sacrifices! Prayers for your safety everyday, thanks for continuing to get up and put on the uniform and keeping the public safe 🇺🇸🙏🏻

Wish y'all would have done this good of a job when Eric Haider went missing. Maybe his family could have gotten closure a long time before. And the fact that now there still isn't justice for Eric is baffling. What else you guys got going on... writing bogus tickets?

Great job DPD! You officers are on the ball & appreciated very much.Dickinson has the finest law enforcement around.👍

Great work! Dickinson PD solved a traffic crime for us a few years ago. Impressive then, and still are. We appreciate everything you do, day-in and day-out.

Good job DPD Did he have any Dewalt tools probably the same D bag that was in my truck and took my tools

Thank you for all of your hard work, I was never so proud of the professionalism of the Dickinson Police Department as I was the Morning after our burglary at The Gentlemans Barber Shop. I am So proud of you all thank you for your endless work and your phone call at 3 AM the night you arrested this burglar to inform me of his arrest. Thank you Luke Simons

We will never forget that warm September morning. 9/11 saw the worst and best of humankind in a moment that has forever changed our country. Sacrifices made, and heroes forged. Many are earning their wings still today as their valiant fight with over a decade of illness comes to an end.

Then came 9/12, another day we should all remember. It was a day that America came together, dusted off our clothes, and stood tall. We set aside our differences and truly cared for our neighbor. Now, 19 years later, we are being tested more as a nation than ever before.

So on this 9/11, remember those who never made it home. Remember how that angered and saddened us. Then remember 9/12....
