One year ago on Veterans Day, Boise Police Cpl. Holtry, a veteran himself, was shot and seriously wounded in the line of duty. While we will never forget the loss of K9 Jardo, we are forever grateful that the lives of Cpl. Holtry, Cpl. Davis and all the involved officers were spared. On this Veterans Day we are thankful for our brothers and sisters in blue and we salute the veterans who work along side us, those who served in the past and those who are presently serving and protecting this great nation. Thank you for your service. #VeteransDay

When you work at the Boise Police Department, every day is a great one. But some days are just a little extra special. Saturday was one of those days, as officers got to spend time with the community at "Shop With a Cop" and the Boise Bicycle Project "Kids Bike Giveaway." It was quite the morning...

Join us for Coffee with a Cop on Thursday at Thomas Hammer on 8th Street. Just coffee and conversation. We hope to see you there!

It's an exciting day for neighbors in the Vista neighborhood as they now have their very own radar trailer. The trailer was requested by the neighborhood residents serving on the Energize Our Neighborhoods Public Safety Committee several years ago. Needless to say, slowdown in the Vista area! The trailer will be moved around the neighborhood as a reminder to drivers to check their speed. Read more about the Energize Our Neighborhoods project here

City of Boise

The City of Boise is proud to be a welcoming city and proud of our diverse community. Refugees from all walks of life have come to call Boise their home and our Boise Police Department has been integral in helping create a safe and welcoming community for them.

Seniors from The Dick Eardley Senior Center took a tour of the police department, hung out with Scout and Officer Nickerson, learned about crime scene investigation and piled into the Chief’s office for a blurry selfie with the Chief!
We hope everyone had fun! #selfiewiththechief

Boise Police traffic enforcement officers regularly focus their patrols on school zones, neighborhoods where speeding is a concern, and other areas of town in the hopes that education and enforcement will help change poor driving behavior. In the next few weeks officers will be focusing on reminding folks of the state’s “move over” law. Remember, if you see those flashing lights 🚔, you must slow down and move over if possible. Let’s all help make sure everyone is safe out on those roads.

As we all prepare for winter weather driving, BPD wants to remind drivers to #moveover for emergency workers on the side of the road. First responders face man...y dangers as they respond to crashes and work to keep the public safe, other drivers shouldn’t be one of them. Icy roads increase the potential for accidents and Idaho’s Move Over Law was implemented in 2006 to protect law enforcement, emergency responders and other first responders. The law requires motorist to either move over a lane or slow down below the speed limit when approaching a stationary police or emergency services vehicle. Violators risk a $90 citation.
