Crime Prevention

The Boise Police Department is committed to fostering a spirit of cooperation with citizens of our community to prevent the victimization of our neighbors. The department recognizes that the prevention of crime is key to the quality of life in our neighborhoods. 

The mission of the Boise Police Crime Prevention Unit is to anticipate, recognize, and appraise a crime risk and to initiate an action to remove or reduce it by educating, empowering, and serving the Boise community.

The various aspects of crime prevention are reflected in the departments on this page. Crime prevention presentations are available to groups in the city at no charge.  See topics at the left or request a customized class.  Various materials available to assist citizens and business owners in their own crime prevention efforts can also be found here.
