Pennington County and Rapid City Police Department Gear Up with Body Cameras

Officers of the Rapid City Police Department and the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office will begin wearing body cameras in 2018, as reported by KOTA News. While the technology will be new to both of these departments, the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department has been using the technology since early this year. GF&P officials have been utilizing the cameras to help enforce fishing and hunting regulations. The cameras have also aided investigations and case reports.
