under construction 

We apologize for the inconvenience, but any evidence that has been taken or is in for safe keeping has been moved and we are not able to access the items until construction is done. Our contractors are working as fast as they can to get our construction done but until then, evidence and found property return is about 3 months out.

We know this is very inconvenient, but for now we have to keep the integrity of evidence. We apologize for this and will work to get your items back as soon as possible.

 Thank you

Scam alert 


There is a scam going around where a person(s) will call you pretending to be a service company, i.e., Idaho Power, Verizon, City water service, even a Police department, advising that you are behind on payments and your service will be shut down unless paid. They ask you to call another number to give your credit card information to make the payment. Do not call the number and do not give out your Credit card information. When calling the number back that had called you, the number or listing has been deleted. If you feel you have been contacted by persons requesting money - Please contact the company that they say they are representing as most companies do not call and request credit card numbers. The police department will not call requesting payment over the phone. If asked to pay by gift cards - it is a SCAM.

If you feel that you have been scammed or being scammed please call your local police department.

Blessing Box

The Blessing Box is the idea of Lt Joey Hoadley and his wife Mylinda Hoadley. They recognized a need for people not getting assistance after hours when the food banks close. The Blessing box contains non perishable food items along with toiletries to assist people in need.  Lt Hoadley got with a builder to have the box built and moved here. The Blessing Box was then filled with items by our first sponsor, Silver Hawk Realty. The motto of this box, "Take what you need , leave what you can." 

The Blessing Box is an easy way to help support your community and those in need. If you have questions or would like to donate or sponsor a month, please contact Lt. Joey Hoadley at 208-455-4567
