Our Mission:

The mission of the Meskwaki Nation Police Department is to improve the quality of life through the reduction of crime, maintenance of public order and the enhancement of public safety by providing open, honest, and professional law enforcement service while protecting the proud cultural tradition of the Meskwaki people.

Tribal Council Resolution #1-2001, passed January 18, 2011, enacted Articles 1 & 2 of Title 13, Law & Order of the Tribal Code, which legislatively established the Tribal Police Department. The department’s operational systems were activated in 2005, and the Meskwaki Nation Police Department (MNPD) patrols began October 1, 2006.
