   Safety Tips for Neighbors: Boise Police Officers investigate citizens tips on possible drug houses. Officers say there are several things neighbors should watch for that could be clues to drug activity.

  • Traffic coming and going from the home at all hours.
  • Visitors who stay only a short period of time.
  • Vehicles that stop at a house, someone walks from the house to the car for a short interaction, then the vehicle drives off.
  • Visitors to the home may park several houses away or around the block and walk the rest of the way to the house.
  • Someone from the home gets inside a vehicle, takes a very short drive, then return.
  • The presence of strong chemical odors from the home

    Boise Police urge anyone with any information on neighborhood drug activity to please call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS,
