District 5 is located in the Southeast corner of Idaho, bordering Utah and Wyoming. The Investigative staff is primarily responsible for drug enforcement on the state level, supporting the many area local, county, and federal police agencies.
Methamphetamine trafficking, production, and use are priority cases which demand a high level of investigative resources. We house a specially equipped trailer to respond to clandestine methamphetamine lab emergencies and investigations.
ISP District 5 Investigators work closely with the United State Department of Justice District of Idaho US Attorney’s Office in dismantling and prosecuting high level drug traffickers. We are a steady contributor of drug trafficking investigations that qualify for US DOJ Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force status.
District 5 Investigations is also responsible for the staffing and management of the Crime Scene Response Unit. The CSRU is a trailer equipped with state of the art forensic crime scene processing equipment, and utilizes the talents and expertise of each division in ISP. The CSRU is available to every requesting police agency in District 5, and enables a speedy response to a major crime scene to allow for forensic crime scene processing. The CSRU has been instrumental in using forensic science to obtain many homicide convictions.
