Reporting Drug Crime

Any suspected drug activity should be reported immediately! Help from the community is crucial in effectively combating criminal drug activity. Never assume drug activity is already under police surveillance. Any illegal drug activity or changes in activity you have previously observed should be reported to Law Enforcement at 911. If you have questions regarding questionable behavior you have observed, contact the Division of Criminal Investigation at 605-688-5517.

Property Crimes

A variety of property crimes are prosecuted by this office, such as: theft, theft by deception, forgery, fraud, auto theft, stolen property, damage to property, embezzlement, and burglary.

If you believe you have been the victim of property damage or an automobile accident and have incurred monetary damages that have gone unpaid, contact the Brookings Police Department at 605-692-2113 or the Brookings County Sheriff’s Department at 605-696-8300 and provide all pertinent information. The Brookings State’s Attorney’s Office may be able to request the court to order that restitution be paid. In such an instance, our office would need a copy of the estimate(s) of damages.
