Dear Governor Little and citizens of Idaho,

Since its establishment in 1939, ISP has proudly maintained a tradition of excellence in law enforcement. Our agency, comprised of over 700 dedicated individuals, stands as a beacon of public service, with each member contributing significantly to our collective efforts.

The primary mission of ISP, performed diligently by every member, is to secure the safety and well-being of all Idahoans. Our sworn employees are the frontline heroes who work tirelessly to prevent and investigate crimes, protect our highways, and respond to emergencies. Their expertise and unwavering commitment to public safety form the cornerstone of our agency’s success. Simultaneously, our Professional Staff plays a pivotal role in supporting sworn employees, law enforcement partners, and the public by adeptly handling technical, scientific, and logistical tasks. ISP actively empowers all our employees to elevate customer service, advance their expertise, and embrace innovation through the lens of public service. Every member of our agency plays a critical role in upholding their duties and maintaining the integrity of our mission. It has always been and will continue to be that any positive reputation and public trust we hold stems directly from the professionals who chose to serve as members of the Idaho State Police.

As the demands for ISP services continue to increase, encompassing Critical Incident Task Forces, drug seizures, fatal collisions, local law enforcement support, and our continued involvement in your Esto Perpetua initiative to eradicate fentanyl and other dangerous drugs from Idaho, I want to assure that we stand ready to take on these challenges.

The year 2023 marked a significant milestone for ISP, with increased support from the Governor’s Office and the Idaho Legislature. This support has enabled us to enhance our training programs, address salary concerns, mitigate rising fuel costs, acquire essential safety equipment, and most importantly, add new positions for trained staff. These positions include a centralized Records Manager for more efficient records processing, two Commercial Vehicle Safety Specialists to meet the growing demands of the motor carrier industry, seven Forensic Investigators for cold cases and DNA collection, two Technical Records Specialists (TRS) in the Sex Offender Registry Unit, and additional hours for evidence processing. Additionally, we welcomed one SART/SANE nurse, crucial for essential training and supporting law enforcement in sexual assault and forensic cases, and seven additional troopers for the Domestic Highway Enforcement (DHE) Team. The DHE expansion will work with our K-9 units to combat illegal drugs and enhance highway safety. Recognizing the threat posed by illegal drugs, particularly fentanyl, to communities across our state, DHE remains a priority within the Esto Perpetua initiative.

As we continue to progress, ISP remains steadfast in our commitment to upholding the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and service. Our vision fosters an environment of accountability and transparency across all our operations, and we are dedicated to safeguarding constitutional rights, protecting property, and enhancing the overall quality of life in our magnificent state. Collaboration and building robust partnerships with local law enforcement agencies, government entities, community organizations, and the public remain at the core of our strategy to ensure the security of Idaho.

We are sincerely grateful for your trust and support in ISP as we continue serving Idaho. We remain resolute in dedication to our mission.
