We’re HAIR to help!

Our city employees are participating in no shave November again this year. Employees wishing to participate can pay $30 and start with a clean shaved face on November 1st, and see who can grow the best beard by the end of the month 🧔🏻

Female employees wishing to participate opted to get blue 🚓 or red 🚒 dye in their hair, instead of growing beards this year.

All the proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to the Indianola Community Youth Foundation (ICYF) to help with their goal of supporting the youth of Indianola.

Pictured below is Officer Stewart’s blue hair.

Stay tuned towards the end of the month for the beard pictures!

Our officers and staff send our deepest condolences to the family, friends and fellow troopers of Iowa State Patrol Trooper Ted Benda. Rest In Peace Trooper Benda. #313

The men and women of the Iowa State Patrol and Department of Public Safety are heartbroken to announce the loss of one of our own, Trooper Ted Benda ISP #313. Trooper Benda, 37, was involved in a single-vehicle crash on Thursday, October 14th while in route to assist the Clayton County Sheriff's Office with a wanted suspect. He succumbed to his injuries today, October 20, 2021.

Trooper Benda joined the DCI in 2005, assigned to the Special Enforcement Operations Bureau in Marquette. He transferred to the State Patrol in 2016, assigned to District 8 in Mason City and most recently working out of the District 10 office in Oelwein. He is not only a valuable part of the Department of Public Safety, but he was more importantly a loving husband, father, son, and brother. Trooper Benda leaves behind his wife, Holly, and their four young children along with many family, friends, and colleagues.

Please keep the Benda family in your thoughts and prayers as they face this unimaginable loss.

Rest in Peace, Trooper Benda...we have your 6 from here.
