In a welcomed sign of a return to normalcy, Boise Police announced that their famous Coffee with a Cop series allows Boisians to interact with their law enforcement officers. For years, Boise PD Officers would meet with folks at local coffee shops once a month.

The popular series took a sabbatical during Covid and the tenure of the now-former Chief Ryan Lee. He was asked to resign by Boise Mayor Lauren McLean after a detailed report from Channel 7. The mayor has not picked a new chief but has fired the Office of Director of Police Accountability, Jesus Jara, who is not suing the city. She then hired a high-priced East Coast lawyer to investigate the police department concerning allegations of white supremacy. The investigation will cost Boise at least $500,000.

Check out this high speed involving the Boise PD.

While the mayor is engaged in her expensive litigation and investigations, the Boise PD looks to restore its bond with Boise. Boise Police Chief Ron Winegar explains, “Our police officers respond to over 130,000 calls for service every year and what our officers desire as much as our community is partnerships and positive connections.” He continued, “we look forward to getting to know more of our community and letting them get to know us.”

They announce an outside attorney will determine what happens to Boise PD.

Partnering with the police will be the Boise Police Activities League (PAL). “Many of our officers became officers because of a positive interaction they had with a police officer in their youth. To many of us, serving our community is about more than responding to 911 calls or making traffic stops, it’s also about setting good examples, being there for after-school activities, and developing a trusting relationship with people so they know we are a safe place to turn,” said Boise Police officer and PAL President Jason Shofner.
