Mitchell Police Department to Receive Money for Training Dummy
PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that the Mitchell Police Department has been awarded $1,200.00 for a training dummy 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 Mitchell Police Department to better protect its communities.”
“The training dummy will be used by regional law enforcement to assist in officer rescue/hostage training during drug investigations,” said Mitchell Chief of Public Safety Lyndon Overweg.
