Continuing our efforts to reach out to the community in new ways, the Boise Police Department is launching a podcast. The podcast is called “The BPD Beat” and will cover a variety of topics with the goal of helping community members get to know department staff, better understand Boise Police’s community liaison work and learn more about the department’s values.

Each episode will feature a different guest and will cover a variety of topics. Boise Police invites the community to tune in to hear new information and stay up to date on what is going on inside the department and in Boise.

The podcast is hosted by Boise Police Department Captain Matt Bryngelson. Captain Bryngelson leads our patrol division and has been with BPD for over 22 years. He is also a former radio DJ and is enjoying mixing these two roles. Four episodes are available in the initial release, with more planned in the coming weeks and months. The four podcasts out now are about our K9’s, the Gang Unit, Traffic enforcement and a recently retired long time Boise Police officer.

You can listen to “"The BPD Beat” podcast on PodbeanSpotify, Google Podcasts and Apple Podcasts. It’s also available online or through the free mobile apps available for download in the App Store and Google Play. Additional platforms may be added in the future.

As the Boise Police Department continues with this podcast, we would love to hear your feedback. Community members can write to us at with guest suggestions, story ideas, and questions.
