Community members mourn passing of ISP trooper Hoyt

Area law enforcement agencies are mourning the passing of Iowa State Patrol trooper Rose Hoyt (Ives.)  At 18 she went to work as a Cass County jailer, reserve police officer, and eventually, a police officer in Red Oak and Glenwood from 2012-2017.
The Iowa State Patrol announced Ives’ passing on May 8, after a battle with cancer. Iowa State Patrol officials said Ives displayed immense strength and bravery until the very end. Trooper Ives was an essential part of District 3 (Council Bluffs) and the Iowa State Patrol, setting a shining example of what it means to be a state trooper.
The Red Oak Police Department issued the following statement after the announcement of Ives’ passing:
“Rose began her career as a Reserve Red Oak Police Officer before transitioning into a full-time officer. Rose served 4 years as a patrolman before transferring to the Glenwood Police Department and then on to the Iowa State Patrol. Rose was an exceptional officer, who wore the badge with pride, dignity, honor and integrity. Rose had a heart of gold, always willing to jump in and help no matter the circumstances and most certainly always provided very wise words of wisdom. Rose, you will be missed, but until we meet again, keep a watchful eye on all of us down here. Our most sincere condolences go out to her family and friends during this difficult time.”
