Special Needs Database

The Sioux Falls Police Department is taking a proactive approach to assist in the search for missing children with special needs. Parents of special needs children can voluntarily submit information about their child to the police department.

In the event the child goes missing, that information will be readily available to all officers. The goal is to find missing special needs children as quickly and safely as possible. The information voluntarily submitted will only be used to find a missing special needs person. Once the child turns 18, any information or photos will be removed from the system.

To participate in this program, simply click below on the link and fill in the information. Any pictures of the registered person can be emailed to policeclerksgroup@siouxfalls.gov. Please include the name of the special needs person in the subject line when attaching the photo to the email. In the event a special needs child is missing, any photos submitted will be released to the media/public to help locate the missing child.
