With the return of area college & university students, the Dubuque Police Department will be increasing its presence within the local college districts. Residents and students may see these officers in their neighborhoods in cars and on foot in the coming weeks. These officers will be meeting with off-campus students and college district residents to engage in conversations about being respectful neighbors, personal safety, alcohol consumption, and about hosting safe and legal social gatherings.
The officers will be offering resources and advice on how these students can have a safe and successful start to a new college year. The officers will be equipped with City of Dubuque services brochures, Jule Transit and Nightrider information, and other relevant resources.
If you see these officers out and about in your neighborhood this fall, feel free to stop and introduce yourself to them. They will be happy to assist with any neighborhood concerns or questions.
