Flandreau Police Department to Receive Money for Service Dog and Equipment
PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that the Flandreau Police Department has been awarded $10,000 for a police service dog, kennel and equipment 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.”
“We are very thankful for the generosity of the Attorney General’s Office in assisting in the purchase of our new detector canine as combatting drug abuse is a principal priority of the Flandreau Police Department,” said Sergeant Anthony Schrad.
