Lake County Sheriff’s Office to Receive Money for Digital Video Camera Systems
PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that the Lake County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded $32,401 for digital video camera systems for their patrol cars 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 Lake County Sheriff’s Office to better protect its communities.”
“Without the help of the Drug Control Fund our department wouldn’t be able to keep up with today’s changing technology. Our county, like so many others have limited funds available for purchases. With the assistance of Attorney General’s Office we are able to update our technology,” said Sheriff Tim Walburg.
