Property Nuisance Reporting Made Easier

Reporting property nuisance violations just became easier. The Oelwein Police Department has created an online reporting system for the public to request possible nuisance/structural issues to be investigated.

Citizens may go to oelweinpolice.org and click on the red tab (Report Property Nuisance Violation) on the left side of the screen. This link will bring up a form that allows citizens to list the address and type of violation that they wish to have investigated.

“This process is being implemented to allow for citizens, at their convenience, to be able to report to us and guide us on areas of nuisance concerns” states Chief Jeremy Logan. “With this process, it is our goal to be able to streamline the reporting process and therefor assist with ensuring we have a clean and safe community.”

This new procedure is just another tool to be utilized in reporting these possible violations. Citizens may still report violations by calling the Oelwein Police Department at 319-283-4311.
