Police Department

Mission Statement

The members of the Belle Plaine Police Department are dedicated to offering the highest quality of police service to our community. We place the greatest value on the safety and concerns of the citizens we serve with the knowledge that we are accountable to those very same people.

Impartiality, integrity, ethics, and professionalism are key workings to increase community safety, protect life and property, and reduce crime and the fear of crime. To do this, the department and its individual members, both civilian and sworn, are committed to the pursuit of excellence and vow to strengthen a partnership with the community to resolve problems, and strive to improve the safety and quality of life in our city.

Police, Schools, Parents & the Community: Working Together to Make a Difference


Creating a safe community is a top priority for the Police Department. 

A collaborative effort is needed between the Police Department, schools, parents, and the community, to make a difference in not only keeping the community safe, but to make a difference in the lives of our future generations. More than a destination at the end of the day, a community is a place you want to call home and where you should feel safe and secure.
