Protecting the lives, property, and constitutional rights of people in Idaho since 1919.
The Idaho State Police is proud to provide law enforcement services to citizens of the State of Idaho since 1919.

The Department derives its statutory authority from multiple sections of Idaho Code. During the legislative session of 2000, those code sections were amended to reflect the agency's reorganization from the Idaho Department of Law Enforcement to the Idaho State Police. Idaho Code §67-2901 creates the Department and the position of Director, and provides for any divisions and units "deemed necessary for the administration of its duties." more...
The Idaho State Police is a dynamic force in the mix of entities that provide public safety services to Idaho's citizens and visitors. While you may be familiar with the sight of the "black and whites" patrolling the interstate, there is much more to ISP's ability to protect your property and person.
ISP's Investigations program conducts major criminal investigations with an emphasis on drug, racketeering, and computer crimes. Many cases are prosecuted in both state and federal courts, reaching throughout the United States and across international borders into Mexico and Canada.
Forensic Services provides direct support to Idaho's criminal justice community through crime scene evidence collection and analysis. Laboratories located in Coeur d'Alene, Meridian and Pocatello analyze evidence for every law enforcement agency in the state - in fact, annually, up to 85% of the labs' caseloads are generated by local or federal agency investigations.
Partnerships remain ISP's greatest tool for savings, efficiency, effectiveness, and delivery of excellent law enforcement services.
ISP is not only a law enforcement agency, but an entity of state government. Therefore, a most important partnership is with the Governor's Office and the Idaho legislature.
As an executive agency, ISP carries out those gubernatorial priorities that are within its scope in law, such as emphasizing homeland security or public school safety.
Our mission is to keep you safe: at home, on the road, wherever you are. You can partner with us to achieve this goal by staying alert to your surroundings, driving responsibly, and always buckle up for safety!
