Rapid City Chief of Police Karl Jegeris is considering the addition of a police substation, reports KOTA News. The new addition would be located on the west side of Rapid City in order to reduce police response times on calls and to accommodate the city’s population growth projected over the next 5-10 years.
Chief Jegeris discussed the need for a substation before the Rapid City Council on April 16. The council is currently reviewing the plan for the station and have placed it on hold until 2019. The projected opening date for a new station, if approved, will be in 2024.
