WHAT's New In the Police Department:

KNBN NewsCenter1 Food Drive video link

The City is partnering with the Box Elder Police Department and Feeding South Dakota to help provide food to locals. People wanting to donate food can either leave non-perishables in the foyer of the police department, or they can call and schedule a pick up. Once you call, you’ll give police a time when they can come make the pickup.  From there, you’ll leave the bags on your front doorstep or porch and the police department will pick it up. The food goes toward the food pantry that Feeding South Dakota has in Box Elder.  If you live in Box Elder and you’re interested in doing curbside donation, you can call 605.923.1404.
