HOPE probation to make Davison Co., South Dakota, debut
Statewide, HOPE probation and Drug and DUI Court capacity has increased 198 percent since 2014. This is partly because of Senate Bill 70 or the Public Safety Improvement Act, passed in 2013 by Gov. Dennis Daugaard, aimed at reducing inmate populations and recidivism. Since SB 70 was signed into law, HOPE probation has been implemented in several counties throughout the state, including Charles Mix and Brown counties.
