A.B.A.T.E. of South Dakota collecting data on law enforcement during Sturgis Rally

police-stopA.B.A.T.E. of South Dakota is asking motorcyclists who are planning to be in the state during the upcoming Sturgis rally to report their contact with law enforcement, both local and statewide.  On their website the group has posted,

Contact us if you feel you have been treated unfairly by government agencies during the rally…if you are stopped by law enforcement and didnt deserve it, get us a copy of the citation or warning with as much relevant detail as you can. If you were stopped for an equipment related issue but after they discovered you (for example) were not a dui candidate and you were let go without a citation, also notify us of that, we need a paper trail to justify complaint.”

At this time there isn’t a contact form, or fax number to contact the State office.  There are several links to emails and if you are involved with law enforcement during the rally we suggest contacting one of these people.

State Coordinator Jiggs Cressy
Vice State Coordinator Rod Hersrud
