Training Bureau

  • Assistant:

The mission of the Davenport Police Department Training Bureau is to prepare professional sworn and non-sworn employees to meet the rapidly evolving needs of modern society.  Quality training enables our employees to provide quality service to the citizens of Davenport.  

Training for our employees begins when they are hired and ends when they retire.  The Training Bureau prepares newly hired officers for the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy, transitions them to the Field Training Program when they graduate, and provides continuing education in the form of in-service training throughout their career.    

In-Service training is instructed by employees assigned to the Training Bureau as well as other sworn and non-sworn employees from various areas, throughout the department, who are certified to instruct their respective areas of expertise.  Instructors from outside the Department are also utilized for certain courses of instruction.

The Davenport Police Department's training facilities consist of a 22-position 50-yard outdoor range in Mt. Joy, a state of the art 8-position 25-yard indoor range, a dedicated 26' x 40' mat room for defensive tactics training, and a dedicated Firearms Training Simulator (F.A.T.S.) system room.  In addition, the Davenport Police Department utilizes our Community Room, Briefing Room and a classroom at our Mt. Joy Training Facility for classroom style training. 

The Training Bureau consists of 1 Lieutenant, 1 Sergeant, and 1 Officer who develop, coordinate, and implement training within our Department.
