“It is our intent that these changes will have minimal impact on the service our community members receive while having a significant impact on the possible spread of COVID-19. Bottom line if you need a police officer you will still get a police officer."
The Idaho Falls Police Department and the Idaho Falls Animal Shelter are implementing adjustments in conjunction with the worldwide effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. These adjustments are intended to be temporary and have been made with CDC and Eastern Idaho Public Health guidelines, as well as our continued mission to serve the people of Idaho Falls, firmly in mind.
“It is our intent that these changes will have minimal impact on the service our community members receive while having a significant impact on the possible spread of COVID-19,” said Chief Bryce Johnson. “Bottom line, if you need a police officer you will still get a police officer. We are still here, and we will be there for you when you need us. We will also utilize available tools to appropriately protect your health and the health of our officers.”
The vision of the Idaho Falls Police Department is “to be united in a spirit of teamwork to be an open, courteous, and community-minded organization devoted to quality public service. We are dedicated to live by values reflecting a genuine desire to care for the safety and well-being of the public we serve, as well as the professionals who provide that service.” The following adjustments have been made in order to ensure the health and well-being of Idaho Falls Police Department and Animal Services staff, as well as the public we serve. These adjustments are effective immediately.
The Idaho Falls Animal Shelter operates under the umbrella of the Idaho Falls Police Department. All in-person non-essential service interactions at the Idaho Falls Animal Shelter are temporarily halted. This includes the following functions.
The following Idaho Falls Animal Shelter functions will continue with the listed adjustments to ensure the health of staff and necessary visitors.
While the risk of COVID-19 is still considered low in eastern Idaho, we take the health and safety of our community very seriously. We believe these measures will help us to best protect our officers and civilian staff, while allowing us to continue to serve the citizens of Idaho Falls.
We appreciate your continued support of the Idaho Falls Police Department and the Idaho Falls Animal Shelter, as well as our community’s cumulative efforts to support each other through this unprecedented time. We are at our best when our community works together.
