This Plaza honors First Responders and Public Safety personnel. Lifelike bronze statues depict a Police Officer and his K-9, a Firefighter holding a child, an Iowa State Patrol Trooper, a Sheriff Deputy, all connected by a walkway representing the 911 Call Center. Omaha sculptor John Lajba created the statues.
The project was funded by Council Bluffs residents, Ron and Suzanne Mahoney as a way to give back to their community. The Mahoneys want the plaza to serve as a reminder of the respect that our First Responders deserve for their dedication to serving our community.
This plaza was placed in this location in 2018.
