2019 Cops & Shoppers

This December the Carlisle Police Department will be hosting our 4th Annual Cops and Shoppers program. We are currently working with the Carlisle School District to get a list of kiddos who are in need within our community. These selected kids will be able to go shopping for Christmas gifts with one of our very own Carlisle police officers, but we can’t do it without your help!

Last year, through the generosity of our community, we were able to take 36 kiddos shopping so they could purchase gifts for their family members. This year we hope for the same success!

While cash donations are accepted and appreciated, those wishing to support this program are encouraged to donate in the form of a check made out to the Carlisle Police Officers Association. Donations are also being accepted at the Carlisle Police Department, 195 N. 1st Street, Carlisle. We ask that all donations be submitted on or before December 13, 2019 to ensure the usage of all money donated this holiday season.

Questions may be directed to the Carlisle Police Department at (515)-989-4121.

Happy Holidays!

Warren County Community Camera Program

Would you ever consider registering your residential or business surveillance cameras to potentially assist law enforcement with investigations?

Security camera systems, doorbell cameras or any other similar devices on or near your home or business are a great way to deter crime, but they are also helpful to the police. The Warren County Community Camera Program helps our law enforcement officers efficiently locate security cameras that may have captured valuable video information.

By registering, Warren County law enforcement agencies would be able to contact you if a criminal incident occurs within range of your cameras and officers believe your footage might assist with the investigation. Law enforcement will never have direct access to your cameras or feeds, but only contact information and participation in 100% voluntary.

If you’d like to register or for more information, check out the link below:

CPD would like to thank the Warren County Attorney’s Office for making this program available in Warren County!

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
