Jeff Tilson


I am a retired Iowa law enforcement officer with over 30 years of highly successful investigative experience, including 23 years as an Iowa Chief of Police. I have trained, lead and supervised the investigative efforts of many subordinates, in cases ranging from homicide investigations; sexual assault and abuse; accidental, unattended and suspicious deaths; significant embezzlement cases; complex financial, money laundering and tax crimes; election fraud; and all varieties of lesser crimes.

My professional experience includes Peace Officer Certifications in both Iowa and South Dakota; City, County and Federal sworn law enforcement service; and 3 1/2 years as a Federal Task Force Officer (TFO) with the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Additionally, I have been a law enforcement instructor/trainer in many areas of public safety, with an emphasis on Emergency Vehicle Operations. I served as an Iowa Law Enforcement Academy, and Internationally Certified Precision Driving Instructor, having trained City, County, State and Federal Law Enforcement officers, Fire and Rescue Personnel, and Emergency Medical personnel in lawful and proper emergency vehicle operation.
