DES MOINES – The Iowa DNR has concluded an investigation into a downtown Des Moines fight in which two conservation officers intervened to break up the fracas.

The Iowa DNR reported today that the agency has concluded an internal investigation into the incident on September 20th involving two DNR Conservation Officers, determining no violation of current DNR policies. Due to concerns raised during the investigation, the Iowa DNR plans to review its policies to ensure they fully reflect the expectations of conservation officers.

The two officers, Travis Graves and Derrick Slutts, were in Des Moines September 19-20 attending a training and when they were performing job related duties, they drove upon an ongoing fight between two women on Court Avenue. The officers intervened and broke up the fight. Both women were arrested and charged.

DNR Conservation Officers are sworn state peace officers in the State of Iowa.
