Greetings from South Dakota's State Capitol and the
                      Pierre Police Department

Our employees proudly serve and protect the citizens of Pierre as well as all the citizens who make Pierre their temporary home during the legislative session. We enjoy excellent quality of life in Pierre and have the best fishing and hunting in the state!

The Pierre Police Department is on the job around the clock helping meet the needs of our residents with patrol, investigative, cyber crime, community resource, and animal control sections. We also serve as a multi-county Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). 

We have several programs of which we are especially proud. Our School Liaison Program serves all the school campuses.  We offer D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Program), numerous public safety programs, and two of our officers are TAM's (Techniques in Alcohol Management) certified instructors.

If we can assist you in a public presentation, or just have a question about our department, feel free to give us a call. 
Dave Panzer Jr.,
Chief of Police
