Jackley readies to take AG’s office, looking for top deputy

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Former South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley will spend this campaign season searching for the next director of the Division of Criminal Investigation.

At their state convention earlier this summer, Republicans chose Jackley to be their candidate for Attorney General. No other candidate has emerged to challenge Jackley in his bid to take his old job back and he’s unopposed in November.

Jackley on Wednesday announced a search committee comprised of 14 current and former law enforcement officers and prosecutors to evaluate prospects for the next leader of the state’s Division of Criminal Investigation.
