Department Overview

Council Bluffs has been almost completely reshaped since its establishment in 1853. Astonishing advances in technology, communications, and transportation over the decades have transformed all of western civilization. Policing has also changed dramatically, eventually breaking free of political chains and evolving into a highly trained profession, but one thing has never changed - the courage it takes to be a police officer.
