An employee with the Iowa City Police Department will be celebrated at the end of March for completing 50 years of service.
Dave Harris has held several positions within the department for more than five decades. He started as a radio operator, and then became a police officer before retiring as a Sergeant in 1985. The department then rehired him as a civilian radio dispatcher. He became a community service officer in 1991 and still serves this role in the Evidence Division today.
“Dave is incredibly dedicated to this department,” Iowa City Police Chief Jody Matherly said. “This is an amazing accomplishment. We appreciate all he has and continues to do for our organization.”
Harris will be recognized during the City’s annual Employee Service Awards Friday, March 31, 2017.
