New location for Veteran Service Officer

The Oglala Lakota County Veteran Service Office has moved to Batesland and will be located at the OL County Highway Shop, located at 105 Dakota Street, Batesland.

This will increase availability for Veterans on the eastern side of the County. A project is being planned for improvement to our OLC Highway shop, which will include an office for the VSO, along with the Sheriff, Highway Superintendent and Administrative Assistant. This will allow for all county services that are provided locally to be in one spot. The temporary phone number to call is 605-288-1866. After December 15, 2023 the phone number will be 605-867-2555

We will give updates as they come. Please reach out to Jerlene Arredondo to welcome her in her new location!
