Public Records

The records section serves as the official repository for all criminal records and documents of the department. The records section is responsible for data entry, maintaining all police reports, arrest records and statistics. This section is also the point of contact for citizens and other agencies requesting records under Iowa’s open records laws. Records personnel provide quality customer service to all citizens and visitors seeking information or assistance.
