Mission Statement

 

We will strive to help ensure the quality of life and safety in University Heights by taking all reasonable steps necessary to deter crime and to apprehend and prosecute those responsible for criminal activity.

 

We will assist citizens when possible and be fair and impartial in our actions and maintain a professional demeanor in all dealings with the public.

 

We will enforce all state, local, and federal laws to the best of our ability, with public well-being as our ultimate goal. 

 

CrimeStoppers

 

The Iowa City Area CrimeStoppers program is a collaborative effort between local law enforcement groups and concerned citizens.

If you know of criminal activity within Johnson County, call CrimeStoppers at 358-TIPS (8477) and a trained operator will take your information. You will not have to give your name. You will be asked for details such as the type of crime, identity of person(s) committing the acts, and location of the crime, along with any other pertinent details that investigators need.

Even if you do know the identity of the suspect, a description of the person is helpful to investigators. Many times there are multiple people in an area that have the same name so the more information you can provide the better. If the information you provided leads to an arrest, you may be eligible for a reward of up to $1000.
