Idaho Police List

black Image of scales on white background with the words, "calibrate the scales" overlaid. As with any set of scales, the scales of justice must, from time to time, be recalibrated. Total balance is never achieved, but all in the criminal justice and legal systems must strive for it as much as possible.





Idaho Law Enforcement Agencies

There are 3,146 certified law enforcement officers in Idaho spread among five state agencies, 44 county, and 44 city/tribal police departments.

The history of modern police in Idaho began in 1919 with the Bureau of the Constabulatory. According to the State Police website, the Constabulatory was formed to detect and investigate crime, but also to

 “order abatement of public nuisances and to enforce such orders by appropriate court action, to suppress riots, prevent affrays, and to prevent wrongs to children and dumb animals, that are inhibited by law.”

Considering Idaho was still very new as a state, it is hard to imagine “riots.” Yet, when we consider that Alcohol Prohibition was ratified by Congress on January 29, 1919, the founding of an organized state police force on May 18 of the same year makes sense. Certainly, those first state law enforcement officers in the state of Idaho had their hands full for the next 14 years.
