Pennington County DUI Court Program

Our Mission

The mission of the Pennington County DUI Court Program is to enhance public safety by ensuring accountability through supervision, treatment and the support of community partnerships by reforming substance abuse offenders to sober law-abiding citizens.

General Description

The Pennington County DUI Court was established in Rapid City, South Dakota in 2013. Pennington County DUI Court is a voluntary program that provides intensive case-management of non-violent, adult felony offenders. The offender is held accountable through regular appearances before the DUI Court Judge, daily PBT testing and random drug testing, substance abuse counseling, mental health counseling, behavior modification based on incentives and sanctions, and intense community supervision by the DUI Court Team. The program is challenging and requires accountability on behalf of the participants. One of the many goals of DUI Court is for participants to gain self-esteem and self-motivation in order to live an alcohol free lifestyle.
