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
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.
