Madison Police Department to Receive Money for Patrol Car Camera Systems
PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that the Madison Police Department has been awarded $23,470 for patrol car camera systems 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 Madison Police Department to better protect its communities.”
“The Madison Police Department is very appreciative of this award from the State Drug Control Fund, because without the award we would not have been able to update the cameras we currently use. The cameras play a very important function for the officers and the duties they perform,” said Madison Chief Chuck Pulford.
