Welcome to the Iowa City Police Department web resources 

The Iowa City Police Department encourages everyone: full time residents, visitors, students, or those just researching the area, to contact the department with questions about area law enforcement or public safety. 

The Iowa City Police Department's goal is to continually seek ways to improve its mission, and its officers appreciate your input. The effectiveness and success of the department hinges on the ability to communicate with the public. Please let our officers know how we can improve in providing service and public safety. Solving problems is what the department does and it can’t assist without knowing the problem. 

Our mission

“To work in partnership with the community, enhance trust, protect with courage and compassion, and empower victims of crime through excellence in service.”
