Sioux County Sheriff To Launch Series of Enforcement Projects

Orange City, Iowa — The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office is launching an effort that they say will make our roads safer.

Generally, each week, deputies will be focusing on a STEP (Special Traffic Enforcement Project) on various county roads and in the cities in which the sheriff’s office is contracted to provide law enforcement services.

Sioux County Sheriff’s Office officials tell us they will announce the STEP area locations on the morning of the project on the Sioux County Sheriff’s Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), and Instagram pages. 

The public can suggest specific areas as STEP project locations by calling 712-737-3307 and asking to speak to a deputy supervisor or leave a message if none are immediately available. You can also email your request by using the sheriff’s office webmail form at

A number of communities in Sioux County have their own police departments, but the sheriff’s office provides law enforcement in Boyden, Chatsworth, Granville, Hospers, Hull, Matlock, and Maurice.
