Ribbon cutting for Idaho Falls Police Complex set for Tuesday

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - It's the beginning of a new era for the Idaho Falls Police Department.

The new Idaho Falls Police Complex, located at 775 Northgate Mile, will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday. It will be the police department's first consolidated and standalone facility.

Before this building, the police department was split between eight different buildings. But now IFPD officers, their support staff, and specialty vehicles will be under one roof. 

Idaho Falls Police Chief, Bryce Johnson believes the building location will have an immediate impact on cracking down on crime.

"Most of the calls we get in the community are very close to this facility," Johnson said. "It puts us right in the middle of where our busiest areas are."

"The presence of the building helps people know that we're out here and we're present," Johnson continued.

The complex includes an area for K9 units, a gym for officer training, rooms specific for interrogation and polygraphs, and a state-of-the-art criminal forensics lab space.

"It allows us to do more training, better training," Johnson said. "It also allows us to store more evidence."

The ribbon cutting will be held at 1:30 p.m. on April 23.

The public is welcome, but tours of the new building will not be available until May. To schedule a tour, click here.

"This is a visible landmark to the community and lets people know where we are if they want to come and talk to us," Johnson said. "It will help improve the neighborhood."
