Flandreau Police Department to Receive Money for Vehicle and Equipment
PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that the Flandreau Police Department has been awarded $27,943 for a vehicle, spotlight and kennel to be used in drug investigations. The money was awarded out of the Drug Control Fund. The award will assist local law enforcement in drug control and apprehension purposes.
“The Drug Control Fund allows law enforcement to combat controlled substance abuse by funding local programs with monies seized from drug arrests,” said Jackley. “These funds will assist the Flandreau Police Department to better protect its communities.”
“If it wasn't for this type of fund, smaller communities like Flandreau would have a very difficult time trying to keep our streets safe from drugs. I would like to extend our thanks on behalf of the Flandreau Police Department and the city of Flandreau,” said Police Chief James E. Morey Jr.
