Sidney Police Department News

With the arrival of the Winter driving season, the Sidney Police Department would like you to consider the following driving tips. 1. Please set aside extra time to defrost / clear all of your windows of ice or snow before driving any vehicle. The snow build up on the roof , hood, and trunk of the vehicle should be cleared off as well. 2. Clear your headlights and tail lights of any snow. You need to be able to see, as well as be seen. 3. If there is ice or snow on the ground....please slow down, and give yourself extra space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. This also applies to 4-Wheel Drive and All Wheel Drive vehicles. 4. There are streets in Sidney designated as Emergency Snow Routes. If there is a snow event moving into the area, move your vehicle off the road into your driveway. Doing this allows the snow plows to properly clear the roads in a timely matter. If you don't know the snow routes, here is a link to the City of Sidney website: https://cityofsidney.org/318/Maps-for-Download

Hello Sidney residents, Recently the Sidney Police Department along, with Union Pacific Railroad Police Officers, conducted Train Signal education at the UP Railroad crossing on Illinois St. The Officers involved conducted 8 traffic stops in 90 minutes. All of the stops were due to drivers either not stopping for the train crossing, or for drivers proceeding through the crossing while the red alternating lights were illuminated. For future reference, all vehicles must come to a complete stop at railroad crossings when either the drop arm is down, the red lights are illuminated and flashing, or a railroad flag person advises to stop. The vehicle must remain stopped until either the drop arm is completely up, the red light is no longer illuminated and flashing, or the flag person advises it is clear to proceed. If the railroad crossing does not have a drop arm, drivers must stop if the red lights are illuminated, and can only proceed forward after the lights have turned off.

Endangered Person Update: Both Stanley and Franklin are safely in the care and custody of Utah authorities. We want to thank each of you for your help, thoughts, and prayers.
