The Iowa State Police Association

Welcome to the ISPA Website

Our mission is to promote professionalism in Iowa Law Enforcement through communication, education and legislation with the purpose of enhancing the lives of our members. To encourage and build camaraderie between all members of the law enforcement community.This association was founded in 1932 under the name Iowa State Policemen's Association. The Iowa State Police Association was formed with the intent to benefit all of its members statewide. In 1990 the name of the Association was changed to Iowa State Police Association to reflect the influx of women into the ranks of Iowa's Finest.

The Iowa State Police Association is a proud member of the National Association of Police Organizations
