Whom to Call

Weekdays, major crimes or officer involved critical response incidents: Your media contact is:
  • Joelyn Hansen, IFPD Community Projects Coordinator/Public Information Officer
  • Desk: 208-612-8655
  • Cell: 208-589-3091

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.
