Media Guide

The Idaho Falls Police Department, which operates 24/7, 52 weeks a year, is much like the media as we work to serve the citizens of Idaho Falls, in part, through collecting and sharing important information.

Media Information Sharing


It is the philosophy of the Idaho Falls Police Department to respond to media and public inquiries as quickly, completely and accurately as possible while balancing the public's "need to know" with the city's responsibilities under the law. This media policy is only part of the department's general philosophy to operate in an open, cooperative partnership with the community.

The release of information from the IFPD to the media will be in the spirit of the department's media policy and in accordance with Idaho Code. This media kit is a reference guide only, and not intended to cover every possible situation.
