Paul Sikorski Chief of Police

As the Chief of Police, I want to welcome everyone to the Davenport Police Department website. The Davenport Police Department is one of the finest law enforcement agencies in America. We are the only nationally accredited (CALEA) police department in the QuadCities, and the largest accredited agency in Iowa.
It is my desire that this website be a useful place for visitors seeking information on the various programs and services that our Police Department provides. It is our objective that this site be user friendly and if you have a suggestion or idea, please feel free to go to the Action Center. Enjoy the site and welcome!
The Davenport Police Department is located in a 97,700 sq/ft. state of the art police facility at 416 Harrison Street.


The mission of the Davenport Police Department is to protect and care for the well-being of our community while providing excellence in police service. The Davenport Police Department is committed to the values of integrity, fairness, competency and professionalism through positive and meaningful police-citizen interactions and partnerships; these interactions and partnerships preserve the peace and safety of the community, making Davenport a desirable place to live.

The Davenport Police Department has an authorized strength of 163 Police Officers and 28 civilian employees. The Department handles over 160,000 calls for service annually and has an advanced computer dispatch system, integrated in-car computers and an enhanced 911 service, supported by an outstanding, professional and dedicated group of men and women.

The Davenport Police Department is also very proud to state that the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) awarded the Davenport Police Department accreditation status in July, 2003 and three subsequent reaccreditations in 2006, 2009, and 2012. The national accreditation process included an examination of all aspects of the Department's policies, procedures, management, operations and support services.


The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc., (CALEA®) was created in 1979 as a credentialing authority through the joint efforts of law enforcement's major executive associations:

  • International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP);
  • National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE);
  • National Sheriffs' Association (NSA); and the
  • Police Executive Research Forum (PERF).

The purpose of CALEA's Accreditation Programs is to improve the delivery of public safety services, primarily by: maintaining a body of standards, developed by public safety practitioners, covering a wide range of up-to-date public safety initiatives; establishing and administering an accreditation process; and recognizing professional excellence.
