The Rapid City Police Department serves the nearly 80,000 citizens of Rapid City, the citizens of nearby suburban areas, and the estimated 2 million tourists that visit our community and the Black Hills region every year. We are continually working to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the people we serve.
We offer a variety of services, and are especially proud of our proactive programs to keep our community safe, such as the School Liaison Program and our civilian traffic investigators. We also see ourselves as a leader in quality training throughout the region, with outstanding recruit training and Field Officer Training programs to cultivate committed, courteous officers for our department.
