The Idaho Falls Citizen's Watch Patrol volunteers - made up of retirees, working folks, students, and stay-at-home moms - has found an incredible way to give back to their community through the numerous hours of service to the IFPD.
How You Help Idaho Falls
Since starting in 2001, this group of volunteers has saved the city anywhere from $100,000 to $500,000 annually through their dedicated service. They've assisted the department with special events, neighborhood patrols, traffic control, vacation watches, ballot pick-up, park patrols and other services. These volunteers have not only saved the city money, but they have ensured that the city of Idaho Falls maintains a high quality of life for residents.
Around the state, the CWP sets a high standard for other law enforcement volunteer groups with their professionalism and dedication to volunteering.
