RAPID CITY, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Public Safety says two South Dakota tribes are getting funding for their 911 call centers.
A total of $132,669 is being given to the tribes. The Oglala Sioux Tribe received $86,240 from the state’s 9-1-1 Coordination Board in March. Last week, the board approved another $46,449 in funding for the Cheyenne River Tribal Department of Public Safety.
State officials say the one-time funding is available to 911 centers statewide for equipment upgrades and other infrastructure needs.
