FLANDREAU, S.D. (AP) - The police department in Flandreau is getting $10,000 from the state to buy a police service dog, kennel and equipment.

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says the dog and equipment are meant to be used during drug investigations.

The award comes from the state’s Drug Control Fund, which is funded with money seized in drug arrests.

Sgt. Anthony Schrad with the Flandreau Police Department says his agency is thankful for the award. He says “combatting drug abuse” is a department priority.
