Des Moines Public Safety Officer 911

Chief of Police

Chief of Police, Dana D. WingertIt is my pleasure to welcome you to  I am pleased you are seeking information about the Des Moines Police Department.  I think one of the best features of the site is the ability to listen to our Communications Unit in real time.

The Des Moines Police Department has a strong community policing program, recognizing that our citizens are full partners in addressing issues that affect quality of life.  We work jointly with our citizens to set priorities for police and local government response and then collaborate on problem resolution.

The department is comprised of four bureaus, each commanded by a Major.  My executive staff and I do our best to create an environment that fosters excellent performance by our employees.  I am proud of the work the men and women of this department do for the citizens of this community, and I am honored to serve as their Chief.
