This evening, the Public Safety Center was officially dedicated. Police and Fire Department members and their families helped celebrate the event with a BBQ and building tours. Many retired fire and police members also attended the event.

We would like to thank Dakota Community Bank for helping with the grilling! It turned out to be a very special event.

The Public Safety Center is a few weeks away from beginning operations. Contractors are making the "finishing touches" and bringing the center to life. We will notify the public well in advanced of the switchover of operations to the new facility. Stay tuned!

The Southwest Tactical Team will be conducting its annual "scenario training" day tomorrow (Wednesday, August 19th) from 1:00 PM until 10:00 PM. Though the team will make an effort to keep a low profile, some areas in town may briefly see tactical members and equipment as they conduct their scenarios. Signs will be posted near the training sites indicating that the situation is "Police Training". No traffic delays or other disruptions are expected.

The Southwest Tactical Team serves as a regional tactical asset for the southwest region of North Dakota; a service area of over 13,000 square miles. As a state-certified SWAT team, Southwest Tactical is required to train for a minimum of 96-hours per year. Tomorrow's training will integrate the Crisis Negotiation Team and test the team's skills regarding hostage rescue and barricaded subjects.
