The Central Iowa Task Force is a multi-jurisdictional task force covering Story, Boone, and Greene Counties. Full-time members of the task force include The Story County Sheriff’s Office, Ames Police, ISU Police, The Story County Attorney, Boone County Sheriff’s Office, Boone Police, Boone County Attorney, Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, and the Iowa National Guard.
The Sheriff’s Office has two full-time deputies assigned to the Central Iowa Drug Task Force. Both positions are funded through a grant from the Governor’s Office of Drug Control Policy. The Sergeant from the Sheriff’s Office assigned to the task force coordinates and supervises all task force activities and maintains the funding grant.
The Field Services Division of the Sheriff’s Office is part of many special teams. One team is the Emergency Response Team (ERT). The deputies and detective on that team are trained to perform high-risk operations that fall outside the abilities of regular deputies.
The Field Services Division is lead by the Commander of Field Services.
