Community Relations

Our Philosophy
The Coralville Police Department recognizes and appreciates the value of a good working relationship with our citizens. All of our officers employ a community-policing philosophy during the discharge of their duties. In addition, an officer is assigned full-time to conduct and coordinate community relations functions and activities for the Department.

Invite an Officer to Speak at Your Event
Officers are available to speak with civic organizations or other groups, provide tours of the police department, and conduct security inspections of homes and businesses. 

Vacation Security Checks
We offer vacation security checks of homes where a resident may be away for a period time. Officers will periodically check the home to help ensure it remains secure until the resident returns.
