SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Retired Gen. David Petraeus has been tapped as the keynote speaker for an annual gathering of law enforcement officials in South Dakota.

Petreaus will speak at the 35th annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Dinner and Children’s Charity Fundraiser scheduled for Nov. 9 in Sioux Falls.

The annual event raises money for impoverished children and brings together local, tribal, state and federal law enforcement officials as well as military personnel from across the region.

Organizers say this year’s event will include a question-and-answer session to allow audience members to speak directly with Petraeus.

The former CIA director resigned in November 2012 and pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified information relating to documents he had provided to his biographer, with whom he was having an affair.
