State officials are stepping in to help northwestern South Dakota solve problems caused by increased people and traffic headed to the North Dakota oil patch.
South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley sent two Rapid City-based Department of Criminal Investigation agents to help law enforcement in Butte, Harding and Perkins counties manage the increase in criminal cases.
But moving the agents north has put a strain on the Rapid City office, so Jackley is looking elsewhere in the state for agents to pull in from other offices.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol has also discussed putting troopers from other parts of the state in northwestern South Dakota and adding another.
