The patrol division is the heart of the Chubbuck Police Department.  Our officers interact with people every day offering professional and courteous service to all involved individuals.  We are primarily tasked with conducting criminal investigations, ensuring that people operate motorized vehicles in a safe, lawful manner and helping people in need of assistance.

We investigate crime by gathering information and corroborating evidence in order to ascertain the truth.  Officers will make an arrest or issue a citation if they witnessed a crime occurring or if there is sufficient evidence to establish probable cause that a crime was committed by the accused individual.

Vehicular travel can be dangerous for you and for others using the public right of ways.  It is even more dangerous if a vehicle is not safely equipped or if a driver is reckless or unpredictable due to not following the rules of the road.  Our officers will stop vehicles that are blatantly in violation of the safe driving laws and take enforcement action if appropriate.

Officers also often help people settle civil disagreements, check the physical well-being of people who may be in need and look into suspicious circumstances that are reported by citizens.  Officers make every effort to negotiate a good solution to a bad situation whenever possible and try to get people the help they need if it is available.

Our overriding mission is to foster relationships between the public and law enforcement wherein the community is safer and criminal activity is minimized.  We act on behalf of citizens and businesses that are victims of criminal activity while simultaneously ensuring the right to a fair trial for the accused.  We sincerely appreciate the assistance and support of the great people of Chubbuck.

Online Crime Tip

Our detectives investigate serious crimes such as frauds, major thefts, and physical assaults.  Investigating these types of crimes involves working with the victims and witnesses using sound interviewing skills along with employing modern technology and warrants to gather evidence to uncover the truth.  Complex criminal investigations are put together over time and then presented to the prosecutor’s office for approval to pursue criminal charges if the case meets the threshold of provable beyond a reasonable doubt.

We enforce the laws as they are written by the legislature and interpreted by the courts.  Our investigators will make every effort to help the victims of crimes understand their rights and the specific legal elements of the crime that must be proven in court.  We greatly appreciate timely cooperation from victims and witnesses in order to complete investigations.

We are dedicated to not only solving crimes, but also providing free crime prevention education for the community.  Please learn more about theft prevention or avoiding fraud and other online scams by clicking the provided links.  In addition, we present information about drug abuse indicators as well as child and adult protection information.  Each of our detectives has detailed training and lengthy experience in investigative techniques for felony level cases of all varieties.  At any given time, our investigators have multiple open investigations they are working simultaneously, but we will make time to answer your questions whenever possible.

The evidence division’s primary function is to assist our investigators and the prosecutor’s offices with the collection and preservation of evidence for trial.  We are trained to properly collect physical evidence such as fingerprints as well as digital evidence such as security video footage.  Please note that most evidence collected in relation to an ongoing criminal investigation will be held until the case works completely through the court system.

In addition, we hold found property and items taken into our custody until it can be returned to the rightful owner.  Please contact us if you have recently lost property or if we have your property and you would like to pick it up.  Most property unclaimed for longer than six months is deemed legally abandoned under Idaho law.

Request Inspection

Each property owner within Chubbuck is required to maintain their property to the minimum standards as outlined in the City code.  The most common issues we deal with are overgrown vegetation, debris and inoperable vehicles stored in plain sight and fence height restrictions.  In most instances, these issues are resolved through cooperation with the property owner by a workable deadline.  However, if the property owner chooses not to address the issue as requested, it can result in criminal prosecution, liens on the property or both.

Our other main focus is enforcing parking regulations on the City roadways and private property parking lots.  The most common parking violations on city streets involve trailers, recreational vehicles and other oversized vehicles stored in the roadway.  We also often find inoperable vehicles abandoned on the streets or people parked in a manner that blocks access to a fire hydrant, mailbox, or a driveway.  In the winter, vehicles can disrupt snow removal from the roadway which may result in the owner being compelled to move the vehicle.  In parking lots, vehicles parked in handicapped spots without a clearly displayed placard or license plate and vehicles parked in the red zone in front of the business for any reason will be ticketed.  Each parking violation is documented using digital photography and only clearly provable cases will be enforced through tickets, citations or possibly towing the vehicle at the owner’s expense.  You have the right to contest any ticket or citation before an impartial judge in court.

If you would like to request an inspection for an observed City code violation, please contact us via email or phone at (208) 239-3227.  The code enforcement division will take appropriate action to remedy the issue when the circumstances merit doing so.  In all cases, we will work with the property or vehicle owner, if possible, in order to resolve the problem outside of the court system.  We handle hundreds of complaints annually and prioritize issues that pose an imminent safety concern to the community as a whole.  The City cannot force a landowner to maintain a property, we can only issue citations and possibly court-imposed fines.

The Chubbuck Police D.A.R.E. program educates students at four area elementary schools about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, violence, bullying, internet safety, and other high-risk activities that your children may encounter. The program not only informs children of the risks but gives them tools and strategies that they can use to make sound life decisions and to avoid bad situations.

Officer Alleman teaches the D.A.R.E. curriculum weekly at each of his assigned schools in the spring.  He works closely with each of the teachers in order to foster a positive and interactive learning experience for all of his individual students.  During the time of the year that Officer Alleman is not teaching classes, he attends training courses and meets with local businesses and community members to get support for this excellent program.  If you are interested in more information about the local D.A.R.E. program or you would like to contribute to its ongoing success, please contact Officer Alleman.
