Officers and Firefighters work together to prepare for the worse

IMG 1536Active shooters and terrorist events like those seen at San Bernardino and Paris have tested tactics developed in the wake of Columbine. These tactics were developed to end situations where someone is actively killing people quickly. The Sioux City Police Department (SCPD) had been training their officers in these tactics and refining them for over 10 years. As part of that trend, members of the Sioux City Police Department and Sioux City Fire and Rescue (SCFR) came together at the Orpheum Theatre on Jan. 13, to work out how they would respond to an incident of an active killer together.

“This is the evolution of rapid response to active killers,” said the SCPD’s Lt. Rex Mueller, who helped organize the training scenario teaming officers with firefighters with the purpose of rescuing victims.

Scams Target Flood Victims

The Sioux City Police Department has received reports of con artists contacting those impacted by the flood posing as cell phone carriers. The scam is an attempt to obtain victims credit card and bank account numbers by "verifying" payment methods. 

The Con Artist tells the vicitm that their cell phone payment did not go through and needs to be resubmitted. Once credit card or debit card information is obtained, charges are made or the bank account emptied. The scam is mainly targeting those in the Dakota Dunes area now that they are receiving national attention. This and other scams are expected to expand to other areas affected by the rising waters.

National Training Center

As of January 1, 2012 all funding for the National Training Center (NTC) has ended. We will not be hosting any classes at this time.

The NTC was the vision of Congressman Tom Latham in who worked to secure funding in 1997 with the first classes beginning in November of 1998. Since that time, 23,699 officers have received valuable training in the 885 classes that were put on. These classes were free of charge for the officers attending. They have covered topics ranging from drug investigations, interviews and interrogations, court room testifying, marksmanship instructor, and SWAT training. Officers from 42 states have attended classes at the NTC.

“We hope that in the future we can secure funds to get the National Training Center running again. The training provided there benefitted officers from departments that normally would not have been able to afford these types of classes. We greatly appreciate all the support that Congressman King and Senators Grassley and Harkin have provided over the years,” said Doug Young, Chief of Police for the Sioux City Police Department.

“We got the most training that we could for the funds we were provided. My biggest goal was to make sure that officers were not only trained on how to do their jobs better but more importantly, get him safely,” Sergeant Mike Hamm said. Sgt Hamm directed classes and training at the NTC.
