To go home feeling they helped …

The law around here … Chief of Police Kit Graham, Deputy Sheriff Mark Foley, and Sheriff Larry Hanes.

by Bill Kunkle

Government has no higher duty than to protect its citizens’ health and safety. South Dakota supports law enforcement and its citizens, who, for the most part, respect the law and the rights of their neighbors.

The police officer is the most visible symbol of our nation’s first line of defense. Their days are often busy and filled with unforseen events. They are embassadors of goodwill, often the first look at our government at work. Sometimes called “the thin blue line”, they must be prepared to risk their lives to protect public safety.
