Our Detectives collaborate with other investigators throughout the Magic Valley by participating in the Magic Valley Investigators Group, and serving on the Magic Valley Critical Incident Task Force.

Citizen Involvement

We feel a major part of our success is due to citizen involvement. Please take steps to protect yourself and your property to avoid becoming a victim. Report any information you may have to help solve crimes; you may remain anonymous if you wish. By working together, we can make an impact on the problems that confront us, and improve the quality of life we all enjoy in our beautiful city.
