The Waterloo Police Department would like to announce a community partnership with Tri County Head Start and the Eastside Ministerial Alliance. We are proud that our organizations have collaborated to bring police services out into the community in this unique way. Our goal by creating this partnership is to increase positive contact with the community members, and give children a chance to interact with a Police Officer on a more personal level. Citizens of Waterloo will now have the opportunity to report a crime or just talk about other community issues to a Police Officer at a location that is prominently located in the We Care Neighborhood area at 205 Adams Street.
This partnership will put a Police Officer in the building at 205 Adams Street initially for 4 (four) hours a week starting June 22, 2017. Hours of availability have been set from 1200pm to 4pm and currently it will be scheduled for every Thursday. In conjunction with office hours, the Police Officer will be making contact with community members in the immediate area through foot or bicycle patrols. Our desire is for residents in the area to reach out and communicate with the Officer on any and all issues they may have.
