Dispatchers... ...are the people who take your calls when you're having your worst day. ...are the ones who give officers, firefighters, and paramedics the essential knowledge needed to respond to calls and survive. ...are the glue that holds together every first responding agency, yet they're usually only heard and not seen. Thank you, dispatchers, for all you do for us every single day. #NPSTW

We're extremely grateful for the great people at Valor & Violet salon.

We truly appreciate your support.

Join us today from 11am until 2pm for a free lunch at Texas Roadhouse - Ames to support Special Olympics Iowa! We're happy to "serve" you lunch.

Here are some of our #StartByBelieving Day highlights showing our support for sexual assault victims.

We #StartbyBelieving - not only during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, but every day. We care; please tell us.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In an effort to raise more awareness this year, we've made some changes to our gear. Teal shoulder patches on uniforms aren't all we have in store for the month!

Take a minute to look at this inspiring journey of what it's like to be a minority in society today, including experiences from officers at ISUPD and the Ames Police Department. It's called get and you can see the exhibit through tomorrow in the College of Design @ Iowa State University or online!

We're proud to be one of the many campus supporters of this great ISU Green Dot initiative led by ISU Student Wellness!

We’re excited to be supporters of the Green Dot initiative at ISU – so much so that we’ve added a new look to our squad cars! A green dot is anything you do to make our community safer. The Green Dot initiative encourages everyone to play a role in changing campus culture by being an active bystander. You can learn more at Photo: Green Dot logo on the rear window of a squad car with the Campanile in the background.

We're extremely lucky to have great student employees working with us. This year, student dispatcher Hope Yates was selected as a Student of Distinction during the Student Employee of the Year awards! Congratulations, Hope, and thank you for your amazing work ethic and dedication to improving safety on campus.

UPDATE: ALL CLEAR. HazMat indicated the substance was a nutritional supplement. There is not a risk to the community at this time. HazMat is on scene in the southwest corner of Durham for a suspicious substance. There is no known threat to the campus at this time. Please avoid the area and allow HazMat to work.

If you ever encounter an active shooter or other violent incident, remember you have options: Avoid, Deny, Defend.

When someone says they were sexually assaulted, we Start By Believing. Will you? We’re proud to have Officer Greiter named a Champion of Change for his efforts in continuing to progress this cultural change in Ames and throughout the state of Iowa. Start by Believing Campaign
