Community Outreach

The goal of Boise Police Department outreach efforts is to foster greater relationships with our community. The Boise Police Department features knowledgeable speakers from all areas of the department including personal, home, and workplace safety or preventing identity theft, fraud and scam. To make a request for an officer or other member of our staff to participate in an upcoming event, please complete the request form below. While we can’t always send an officer, we are interested in knowing what topics you are interested in so we can better share information on important topics. Learn more about common safety topics.


The Boise Police Department provides a limited number of facility tours to community groups by request. Please fill out the request form to request a tour or to be put on a tour notification list.

Shop With a Cop

The "Shop With A Cop" Program pairs a young person with an officer twice a year for a shopping excursion at a local retailer. Boise Police Officers, the Boise Police Association, and the Boise Police Victim Witness unit help fund the program and often times kids choose to purchase items to assist their parents and family. The back to school Shop with a Cop event allows underprivileged children a chance to obtain school supplies and the holiday event is centered around children involved with the Victim Witness Unit. Both events give kids a chance to interact with police in a positive environment. To make a donation to the Boise Police Association for Shop with a Cop, please fill out the form below.
