RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The board overseeing Rapid City’s Rushmore Plaza Civic Center has voted to spend $50,000 in government grant money to install portable metal detectors at the facility.

The Rapid City Journal reports the civic center’s board of directors unanimously approved the purchase Tuesday.

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 but Baltzer called them “cumbersome.”
