New Years Eve Safety Tips

If you are hosting a New Year's Eve party, following a few simple rules could prevent a tragedy:

  • Plan ahead by naming a "designated driver." Make this your responsibility as the host.
  • Contact a local cab company to provide rides for your guests.
  • Serve non-alcoholic beverages as an option to your guests.
  • Stop serving alcohol to your guests several hours before the party ends.
  • Provide your guests with a place to stay overnight in your home.

If you are attending New Year's Eve parties and celebrations:

  • If you drink, don't drive.
  • Plan ahead and always designate a sober driver before the party or celebration begins.
  • If you are impaired, call a taxi, use mass transit, or get a sober friend or family member to come pick you up.
  • Or, stay where you are until you are sober.
  • Take the keys from someone if you think he/she is too impaired to drive.

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.
