Prevent Crime

Perform Our Statutory Duties

Uphold The Law Fairly and Firmly

To Protect, Help and Reassure the Community

Pursue and Bring to Justice Those Who Break the Law

Uphold the Constitution of the United Sates of America and the State of Idaho

To Do All of This With Integrity, Common Sense and Sound Judgment

We must be compassionate, courteous and patient, acting without fear or favor of prejudice to the rights of others.  We must be professional, calm and restrained in the face of violence and apply only that force which is necessary to accomplish our lawful duty.  We shall strive to reduce the fears of the public and, so far as we can, to reflect their priorities in the actions we take.  We must respond to well-founded criticism with a willingness to change.
