The Muscatine Police Department has and continues to attract well qualified applicants to our organization. As a nationally accredited law enforcement agency the Muscatine Police Department firmly believes that "to be the best, you have to employ the best". With this concept in mind the department has actively recruited candidates from as far away as California, North Carolina, Florida and all across the Midwest.
The department has an active core group of officers who regularly attend job fair and career day events throughout the state and the Midwest in an effort to make sure that those who deserve the chance, are given information about the professional opportunities that working for the Muscatine Police Department offers them.
The department is focused on achieving their 30x30 initiative (30 percent female officers by 2030), resolving situations with less use of force, be less likely to use a weapon during responses, having better outcomes for sex abuse victims, and having few complaints. We are community oriented and proud of the community we serve.
