SIOUX FALLS -- An anonymous donor has given $3,500 to Sioux Falls police officers to give to the needy in the city.

The money will be handed out in various denominations to needy families who officers identify through their work. The money has been given to patrol, detective, and school resource officer teams, and the officers decide when, how, and to whom to give the gifts.

“This is the second year the anonymous donor has provided money for officers to give away, and we are grateful for their partnership with us,” said Police Chief Matt Burns. “Police officers frequently meet people who are in need, and this is a great way to give something back to those people. It’s a gift for our officers, too, who enjoy these positive interactions with members of our community.”
