Pride in Service

We believe in the equitable, fair and impartial application of laws and ordinances without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, sex, gender identification or station in life, and in treating all individuals with acceptance, compassion and the dignity we would expect if found in similar circumstances.

The Decorah Police Department is a talented and committed team who take pride in the service they provide to the community’s residents and visitors. We believe in a balance between service, enforcement, education and community involvement. We invite you to learn about us and to contact us.
