Police will walk the Pettigrew Heights Area this summer


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Sioux Falls police will soon be getting closer to residents in the Pettigrew Heights Area.

     Lieutenant Galen Smidt says night shift officers will begin a new program called “Walk a Block With a Cop.”

     Smidt says officers will walk with neighbors in a two-block area giving them tips on crime prevention.  He says the officers will point out some things that they see on a nightly basis that they may want to make the residents aware of.  Maybe it's just home security, putting a night light out on their front porch.  Telling neighbors what officers see that might be worth calling 911 for

     Smidt says officers will hang flyers on homes in the block they intend to walk the following week.

     Between June and September two or three officers will walk with Pettigrew neighbors twice a week.
