COVID-19 Announcement from Cedar Falls Public Safety 

Cedar Falls Public Safety Update, April 28, 2020

To help lessen the risk of COVID-19, the Cedar Falls Public Safety Building will be limited to public access until further notice. No rental or commercial inspections will be done during this time. 

We highly encourage residents to utilize the new online crime reporting form at www.cedarfalls.com/1533/Report-a-Crime. This allows for the reporting of crimes such as credit card fraud, harassment, theft, and minor vehicle accidents on private property. It is not for emergencies or crimes in progress. In an emergency situation always call 911.

Thank you for your cooperation as we work to keep our community safe.
