4th of July 2019 Media Release

CPD Offers Salvage Title Inspections

The Carlisle Police Department now offers salvage title inspections. Iowa law requires all vehicles designated “salvage” or vehicles that have a “salvage” title to be physically examined by a peace officer who has been certified. Applicants must present to the officer an Iowa salvage title in the applicant’s name, or a properly assigned title is acceptable. The fee for the salvage theft examination is $50 and must be paid online by credit card to complete the approval process prior to inspection. For the online Affidavit of Salvage Vehicle Repairs form please visit-

The purpose of the salvage theft examination is to physically verify that no stolen parts were used to rebuild a vehicle and to authenticate the vehicle being rebuilt. A typical salvage theft examination takes approximately 45 minutes, but may take several hours if the vehicle identification numbers are not easily accessible or there are problems with the ownership documents. It’s important to maintain all receipts, invoices, and documentation for parts used to rebuild the vehicle and to bring these to the inspection as the officer will need to verify this information.

You may contact the Carlisle Police Department at (515) 989-4121 to set up an appointment.

CPD Receives Greater Carlisle Foundation Grant

Larson was on hand to accept the award on behalf of the police department.


This summer CPD would like to see everyone being safe! We ask that as you go about your summer activities, you take a couple seconds to snap a quick picture showing off that you, your family or friends are being safe this summer! Whether it’s buckling your seat belt (prior to operation of course), wearing a life jacket while swimming or boating, looking both ways before crossing the street on the way to the library or pool or anything else that you’d like to share. Upload the picture to Facebook and tag us at Carlisle Police Department or use the hashtag #CPDSafeSummer in your post. We look forward to seeing all the safe pictures come in!

Golf Cart Inspections and Registrations

There have been some recent changes made to the Carlisle Code of Ordinances pertaining to golf cart operations within the City. One highlighted change is that the registration and inspection process is now required to be done annually instead of the previous one-time occurrence.

For those wishing to operate golf carts on city streets, the registration fee is $25.00 per year and the permit is valid from January 1st through December 31st of each year. Each year going forward, you will need to make arrangements with our office to complete the inspection process to ensure that all the code requirements are met prior to operation.

If you have any questions or concerns or need to register your golf cart for the remainder of 2019 calendar year, please contact our office at (515) 989-4121.
