Chamberlain Police Department to Create K9 Unit with Help from Drug Control Fund
PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that the Chamberlain Police Department has been awarded $21,500 for a drug dog and related start-up costs 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 Chamberlain Police Department to better protect its community.”
"The addition of a K-9 unit to our Department will be a powerful tool to help with drug investigations in Chamberlain and the surrounding area,” said Chief Joe Hutmacher.
