Entries from the Iowa City Police Log social media accounts adapted for radio. Though specific to a midwest college town, many entries could be from anywhere.

This series curates and categorizes excerpts (some amusing, some disturbing, some baffling) from the Iowa City Police Department's online daily activity log. KICI radio adapted these entries for radio as interstitial programming. Neither the Iowa City Police Log social media nor KICI-LP radio is affiliated with the Iowa City municipal government.

A special thanks to Chris Patton who created the Iowa City Police Log in 2015. Social Media accounts are:
