CPD “No Shave November”

The Carlisle Police Department will again be participating in “No Shave November” in an effort to raise money for the John Stoddard Cancer Compassion Fund. Throughout the month of November, officers will be allowed to deviate from normal facial hair grooming standards and grow a beard or mustache. The goal is to help bring awareness, by embracing hair, which many cancer patients lose during their fight.

If you see an officer out and about with a good looking beard get a picture with them and tag us here on Facebook or Instagram. We would love to see your submissions!!!

Progress pictures will come throughout the month. #CarlisleIowaPD #NoShaveNovember2019

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. For many, home is a place of warmth, comfort and love. It’s somewhere that you know you will be cared for and supported. But for millions of others, home is anything but a sanctuary. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are victims of physical violence by a partner every year. To report domestic violence, you can contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 or contact your local police department.  #CarlisleIowaPD


Carlisle Police Department’s Pink Patch Campaign




FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – The Carlisle Police Department has launching our 2nd Annual Pink Patch Campaign which started Monday, September 16, 2019. The Pink Patch Campaign is designed to help bring awareness to the fight against breast cancer and to support research organizations in combating this life-changing disease.

During the month of October, CPD officers will have the option to replace their standard uniform patch with the pink version shown above. The pink patches are intended to encourage conversations within our community and to bring awareness in the early detection and fight against cancer.

With a contribution made by the Carlisle Police Officers Association, a limited supply of pink patches will again be available for purchase from now through the end of October. The generated funds raised will then be donated to the John Stoddard Cancer Center Compassion Fund. The Compassion Fund provides cancer patients and their families with support and resources beyond what the hospital is able to provide.

Patches are $10.00 each and may be picked up Monday- Friday 8:00 AM- 4:30 PM at the Carlisle Police Department. Cash or local checks are accepted. We hope that you will join us again in supporting this great cause!

On September 9th’s council meeting, the Carlisle City Council approved a request to place children at play signs in the Juniper and Blue Bonnet Drive areas of the city. What made this awesome request unique was the fact that it was made by a few of our younger citizens. Sammi Dickson and Levi and Noah Schattner (not pictured) obtained over 33 signatures from people in their neighborhood to help support their request. Sammi, Levi and Noah were recognized by the police department for their efforts to promote safety and awareness within their neighborhood and community. Great job guys!
