The center in Sioux City that trains law officers to fight methamphetamine in their communities will receive federal funding for another year. Sioux City police chief Joe Frisbie says there’s $2.2 million for the center in the appropriations bill that’s passed the U-S House and Senate. He had been concerned as the original Senate bill had considerably less money than the more than $2 million they’ve gotten in each of the last few years. Frisbie says they’ve trained over 10,000 students from 13 states in the last year alone. Frisbie says the center has much more potential. He says they’d like to expand the training beyond meth in the near future, especially with the need for training against terrorism. The budget bill with the money for the Sioux City operation is now on its way to President Bush.
