The LCSO has done an amazing job of building relationships with residents. Our Deputies stop at the lemonade stands kiddos have during the Summer. LCSO has hired new deputies to fill positions in our very quickly growing county. It’s the fastest growing county in South Dakota!! Our department has been updating their Dispatch Call Center and has recently tried to get bonds to build a bigger jail. We also need our own station in Harrisburg, SD. With all of the building comes more crime. Our Deputies watch Harrisburg and surrounding areas that have their own Departments. Except for Harrisburg. Our Deputies are out interacting with residents all the time. Our National Night Out Event is held in the middle of town by the little building for the Deputies. Our Deputies deserve to have a bigger place to fill out reports or to eat the goodies that residents bring them to say Thank You for finding their child who wandered off, lost dog or cat, lost bikes or the drugs that someone just discarded on the side of the road. Not sure if that person ever claimed their missing property. Their Facebook Page is always updated with what’s been going on in the area. We’ve had Deputies walk neighborhoods at night when break ins were high. There’s nothing that they wouldn’t do to go that extra mile!! I appreciate them for that service.
