Statement of the Iowa Attorney General's Office regarding law enforcement decertification of David Brucher

The Iowa Law Enforcement Academy Council met this morning and unanimously accepted David Brucher's permanent surrender of his law enforcement certification. As a result of the permanent decertification, Mr. Brucher will not be allowed to work in Iowa again as a member of the law enforcement profession.

The Iowa Law Enforcement Academy Council initiated decertification proceedings upon a written request from the Iowa City Police Department. After an internal affairs investigation, Brucher had been terminated from employment by the Iowa City Police Department for gross misconduct and insubordination on April 14, 1998. The Law Enforcement Academy Council requested that the Iowa Attorney General prosecute the case on behalf of the public interest.

The Iowa Law Enforcement Academy Council establishes standards for the law enforcement profession, certifies officers who have met standards, and removes law enforcement officers from service when they violate professional standards.
