Letter from the Police Chief: (MaCOVID-19 Banner (PNG)rch 19, 2020)

In response to COVID-19, the Muscatine Police Department is making some temporary changes to our operations in an effort to keep our team members healthy so we can continue to provide critical public safety services. We want the public to know we are here and we are committed to providing the best services we can during these troubling times. 

Our emergency 911 center is prepared for all emergencies. Call 911 for emergency needs 24/7.

The Muscatine Police department is encouraging citizens to call our non-emergency number 563-263-9922 to report incidents.   If you need us, or have a question related to a non-emergency need, call.  We are encouraging citizens to avoid coming to the Police department unless necessary.  If you need to come to the Police department, we will take your report.

If you need a copy of a police report, or have a question about a police record, we ask that you call our Records department at 563-263-9922.  Normal business hour M-F 8 AM-4PM.  We will email, fax or mail you copies of police records.

The following services are suspended until further notice:

2020 MPD Citizens Academy
Civilian Ride-Along Program
Public Fingerprinting Services
Building Tours
Community Outreach and public presentations

The Muscatine Police Department will continue to serve our community during these trying times.  We will continue to handle all calls for service. Many calls for service will be done over the phone if possible.  This is a departure from how we have done it in the past.  We will still be out patrolling throughout the community.  The Muscatine Police Department is committed to providing the citizens of Muscatine and Fruitland quality service and professionalism.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please email me at btalkington@muscatineiowa.gov or call me at 563-263-9070.

Thank you and be safe out there!!!!
