Partnering both in the field and behind the scenes, the Boise Police and Boise Fire Departments present a joint five-year plan for public safety. Together we aim to lay the groundwork for both departments to strategically plan for future public safety needs in the City of Boise while staying aligned with city priorities. Our goal is to use community feedback, expert planners, and professional experience to make this five-year proposal a template for long-term public safety planning that benefits the community we serve.
This proposal includes plans to 1) address immediate staffing and resource needs to stabilize the workforce, 2) evolve how we define emergency response metrics, and 3) identify strategic capital investment while 4) prioritizing employee wellness. We know when we take better care of our first responders, they are able to take better care of the community. (Click here for more on the full proposal)
