Celebration, Not Incarceration

The numbers are shocking: In 2017 (the most recent year data is available), one person died every 48 minutes in a drunk-driving crash in the United States. These deaths account for approximately one-third of all traffic deaths each year, or, 10,874 in 2017. Despite laws in every state the numbers remain similar year after year. Ultimately, drinking and driving is a choice, and it is a choice that puts all road users at risk.

Fireworks Information

Please see the Fireworks Ordinances FAQ page for Dickinson County and the cities that are covered by the Sheriff's Office.

On June 8th, 2019 at around 2:19pm, the DCSO responded to a two-vehicle personal injury accident at the intersection of 250th Street and 300th Avenue.

Memorial Day and the traditional beginning of summer are quickly approaching. Unfortunately, with the increase in summer traffic we will also see a rise in traffic crashes and fatalities. Last year there were four traffic fatalities on Iowa roadways over the Memorial Day weekend; four deaths that may have been prevented. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2017 there were 10,076 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes nationwide. A majority of those lives could have been saved if they had been wearing seat belts. The national Click It or Ticket campaign will take place May 20 – June 2, 2019. State and local law agencies across the state will be stepping up seat belt enforcement with the goal of protecting you and your family.
