At the University of Iowa Police Department, we strive to keep the UI Community as safe as possible using all legal measures and resources. However, with over 30,000 students, faculty, and staff in the community on a daily basis covering a span of about three square miles, our influence and powers are limited. We strongly encourage every member of the community to stay aware at all times and be proactive in order to assist us in our duties.
