SD Has Received $100m In Homeland Security Grants

SD Has Received $100m In Homeland Security Grants
RAPID CITY, SD -

South Dakota ranks sixth in the nation on homeland security spending per-capita thanks to the more than $100 million it has received in federal grants following the terrorist attacks in 2001.

Whether the money has been used to make the state safe from terrorism is an open question, and a federal report issued last month has questioned the state's ability to measure whether that money is being appropriately spent.

Some of the funds have been used to buy fire trucks and ambulances for small communities; for surveillance cameras for schools and police stations; on communications gear for local and county police; on electronic fingerprinting technology; and to increase bomb-disposal capabilities.

A state report meanwhile acknowledges South Dakota has very little threat of terrorism.
