Every day. Every call. When you
need us, we answer.

Nothing is more important to the DMPD than being here for this city and its residents. That’s why we’ve always been committed to doing what’s right, and why we’re always looking out for new and better ways to keep you safe. The Guardian Project is our answer to the evolving needs of a community we all call home. We’re inviting you to join us in this mission to do more to keep Des Moines safe, because like you, we understand that no matter what you need or when you need it, there’s no greater peace of mind than knowing that someone you can rely on is always just a call away.


The Guardian Project supports public-private leadership and collaboration to increase safety, build positive relationships, and promote transparency, truth and justice between the Des Moines Police Department and the people it serves. And, from our initial to efforts that helped equip every officer with a body camera to our recent projects benefiting the community, we continue to keep the safety and growth of Des Moines in our sights.


Public support for the DMPD has always been essential to the effectiveness of our efforts, and now we’re requesting your help in bringing this beneficial technology to the many officers who protect our neighborhoods, schools, businesses and public spaces. We’re all members of this community, and we all can make a difference in keeping it safe. Please join us as we accept this new call to protect and serve.
