The Iowa City Police Department is asking residents to complete a short five-question survey as part of an accreditation process required by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). Surveys must be completed and submitted by April 30, 2016 in one of the following ways: mailed or dropped off to the Police Station in City Hall at 410 E. Washington Street, or sent electronically via Survey Monkey.

Printed survey postcards were included with City of Iowa City utility bills in April. The electronic version is available online at

The survey is conducted every three years, although CALEA will soon be implementing a four-year cycle. Survey results assist in an analysis of the Police Department’s efforts and help guide recommendations for the future. The Iowa City Police Department is currently working toward its sixth CALEA award.
