I received an obscene/harassing phone call. What should I do?

The Police Department will take a report for phone harassment after three calls are successfully traced.


To have a call traced:

  • Hang up on the caller.
  • Get a dial tone and then dial *57.
  • If the trace is successful, you will receive a recording advising you that the call was traced and a fee will be charged to your bill. If you do not get this recording, call the phone company and request that a manual trace be put on your line.

After three successful traces, call 319-286-5350 to report the harassment. Your report will then be forwarded to the Investigative Division for further investigation.

I need a copy of a police incident or traffic accident report. How do I acquire one?

The fee for a copy of any police report is $5. For more information, please visit our Records Request page.
