By Steve Hanson, ISPA Sr. Director


Hello and greetings from Fort Dodge. I hope this finds everyone well as you’re enjoying your summer and taking time to spend with your families doing whatever activities that may be. It is hard to believe that I am in my third year as an Iowa State Police Association (ISPA) Board member with three legislative sessions under my belt.


Speaking of the legislative session, I would like to take a moment to discuss the importance of “grass roots” efforts with your local legislators. As I previously mentioned, this year was my third on the ISPA Board of Directors during a legislative session, and it was a busy one.


During the last session, I had the opportunity to spend a day at the state capitol with our ISPA lobbyists, Mike Heller and Paula Feltner (who have done a wonderful job for our association), to get a good feel of how business is conducted during session. ...

I hope this finds all of you well and enjoying another Iowa summer. It has been a hot one so far and looks to continue.


Here is an update on the condition of the Iowa State Police Association (ISPA). As of June 12, 2017, membership stands at 3,147. This is virtually the same as last year. We have had a few members choose not to renew their membership and there is the usual turn over with the locals. We have lost 24 members to death so far this year. Over the long run, we average about 30 deaths per year. The last three or four years have been exceptional with numbers in the mid to upper 30s. I hope this trend is short-lived.


The financial condition of ISPA is a constant topic at board meetings. The net worth has remained constant this year at $1.87 million. The increase of dues passed at last year’s Annual ISPA Conference has helped. I would like to thank you all for getting your dues in so promptly.
