Weekdays, major crimes or officer involved critical response incidents: Your media contact is:
Joelyn Hansen, IFPD Community Projects Coordinator/Public Information Officer
What Does This Entail?
Daily Incident Info: Daily incident reports are available to the public. Information is released Monday - Friday by the PIO. Weekend incidents (unless a critical response) will be reported by the PIO on Monday.
Nights, weekend and holidays: Call the Patrol Shift Supervisor at 208-529-1200
A note about what the shift supervisor can give you: The Patrol Shift
Supervisor is able to provide basic information on breaking crimes, or
crimes that occur on his or her shift. If you call a shift supervisor
immediately after a report goes out over the radio, he or she will
likely have no more information than you do. It may be a least 30
minutes after a call that details are available for release.
Shift supervisors are in the patrol division and are not briefed on
cases that involve detectives or ongoing investigations (different
divisions - different jobs). If you would like a weekend or evening
update on an ongoing investigation, please plan ahead so that you can
get the information from the PIO during weekday business hours.
