Two Two Earns South Dakota Basic Law Enforcement Certification

Posted on: March 4, 2024

On Friday, March 1, 2024, Richard Two Two Sr., Chief of Police for Kimball, S.D., received his South Dakota Basic Law Enforcement Certification, one of 42 students graduating the course run by the South Dakota State Attorney General’s Office.

The course meant thirteen weeks of driving from his Kimball, S.D., home to the state capital in Pierre, S.D. “It was a lot of back and forth,” noted Two Two, who had to be in the capital Monday through Friday for the course. Upping the degree of difficulty for the St. Joseph’s Indian School alum was the fact that he and his wife, a warm and family-focused couple, welcomed their third child a little over a month ago.

Two Two’s wife, Danielle, also a St. Joe’s alum, balanced home life and full-time studies at Mitchell Technical College to become a licensed practical nurse. The couple have two other children.

Asked how they manage, Two Two was quick to respond. “My favorite quote comes from “Finding Nemo,” he said. “Just keep swimming.”

“On behalf of all of St. Joseph’s Indian School, we extend to Richard and his family our sincerest congratulations. We are honored to be part of their thióšpaye, and from our hearts we send our best wishes,” said President Mike Tyrell.
