The Seward Police Department is proud to announce the return of D.A.R.E. program to Seward! D.A.R.E. has evolved from Drug Abuse Resistance Education, to focus on teaching good decision making skills to help kids lead safe and healthy lives. Officer Allison Sommerfeld completed the D.A.R.E. Officer Training last September and is currently keepin’ it real with the 5th graders at Seward Middle School and 6th graders at St. John’s Elementary Lutheran School. Remember kids….Be Safe and Responsible!
The Seward Police Department would like to remind the citizens of Seward that 2014 is fast approaching and licenses for your dog are now available. Remember your dog MUST be licensed if you reside within the City of Seward regardless whether they go outside or not. Not only is it the law, but it expedites us in reuniting you with your dog should it get loose, which reduces both stress on you and your pet. The best time to accomplish this task is Monday – Friday from 7:30 to 4:00 (please bring proof of current rabies vaccination as it is mandatory).
If you have any additional questions please to direct them to Community Service Officer, Don Guenther, at the Seward Police Department (148 S. 1st St.) or call 402-643-2579.
