SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Sioux Falls police responded to 178 fireworks calls between Wednesday morning and Firday morning, almost fifty fewer than last year.

     But Captain Greg Vandekamp says the numbers are down because some residents registered grievances on the city’s new online complaint system that won’t get an immediate police response.

     Vandekamp says police don’t get to online complaints until the next morning.  He apologizes to residents who registered a complaint online and didn't get an immediate response.  He says there were "a lot" of complaints online but he couldn't be more specific. 

         Vandekamp says for an immediate response call metro’s non-emergency number at 367-7000
