PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Highway Patrol is set to get a new SWAT vehicle to help with drug investigations.
Attorney General Marty Jackley recently announced that the Highway Patrol will receive nearly $241,000 for the vehicle from the drug control fund.
The vehicle will be used by multiple agencies for deployment throughout western South Dakota.
Colonel Craig Price says the Highway Patrol considers illegal drugs to be one of its top priorities. He says the vehicle will help state and local law enforcement across western South Dakota fight illegal drugs.
