Police Department

Law Enforcement Center
Mission Statement

Prevention of crime is the basic mission of police. Police attempt this goal these ways: prevention, deterrence, and apprehension of offenders with the gathering of evidence.

Police alone cannot prevent crime. True prevention of crime involves all citizens. Police cannot take over the parent's role, the ministers' job, and the schools role.

The women and men of the Fort Dodge Police Department want to thank each of you for your continuing support. Please feel free to contact either myself Kevin Doty, Chief of Police, or any member of the department. My email address is kdoty@fortdodgeiowa.org.
