Rapid City Considers New Requirements for Security Vehicles

After hearing concerns from citizens and the Rapid City Police Department, Rapid City’s Legal and Finance Committee is considering an ordinance that would create greater distinction between security vehicles from police vehicles, as reported by KOTA News.

Under the new proposal, private security vehicles must display the word “security” on the sides and back of the car. Currently, one private security company utilizes the word “patrol” on its vehicles, causing some confusion among Rapid City residents.
