The Fayette Police Department consists of two sworn officers and 2 reserve officers: All sworn personnel are trained and certified through the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy. Additional training is received through attendance at specialized schools, seminars and in-service training.

There is one officer on duty, during the day Monday - Friday, 0700 - 1600, and an evening officer on duty from 1900 - 0300, Tuesday - Saturday. During peak activity hours there may be two officers on duty at a time.

The Fayette Police Department provides various crime prevention programs including theft inspections, business and residential security assessments, vacation security checks, bicycle licensing and dog Licensing.

Due to the nature of the job, police officers must often perform tasks or duties which may be perceived as negative or unpopular. Our officers perform these duties fairly, impartially, honestly, and with a positive attitude. This approach has been rewarded by consistently having one of the lowest overall crime rates in the County as well as being one of the cleanest cities. The efforts of our officers are complemented by the assistance of the citizens of Fayette, who are very cooperative and proud of the clean and safe environment which they have come to expect and enjoy.
