RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The board overseeing Rapid City’s Rushmore Plaza Civic Center is seeking $65,000 in federal grant money for a dozen walk-through metal detectors.
The Rapid City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2aDnOWe ) that the action comes in the wake of a safety assessment by the federal Department of Homeland Security. Results of the study aren’t being made public.
Civic Center Executive Director Craig Baltzer says the metal detectors would help meet security demands of many entertainment acts. Center staff members currently use hand-held metal detector wands when necessary.
