Idaho State Police Honors Unsung Heroes During National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week

MERIDIAN, Idaho - Idaho State Police (ISP) is proud to recognize the second week of April as National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, paying tribute to the invaluable contributions of our Regional Communications Officers (RCOs) stationed across the state.

Observed from April 14th to 20th, National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week serves as a poignant reminder of the crucial role telecommunicators play in ensuring the safety and well-being of our communities. These unsung heroes are the first point of contact in times of crisis, serving as the vital link between those in distress and emergency response teams.

Captain Jens Pattis, overseeing ISP's Communications Centers, underscores the significance of RCOs in public safety, stating, "All of our Regional Communications Officers, stationed in our two Regional Communications Centers, are the 'first-first responders' of this agency. Handling over 200,000 calls for service each year, they navigate the most stressful situations with unparalleled expertise. Their swift action in gathering crucial information, dispatching emergency resources, and providing life-saving instructions is commendable and truly invaluable to communities throughout Idaho."

Despite often working behind the scenes, telecommunicators' impact is profound. ISP acknowledges their dedication and unwavering commitment to public service. Despite the challenges they face, RCOs remain steadfast in their duty to ensure the safety and well-being of all residents.

"While telecommunicators may not always receive the recognition they deserve, ISP is committed to honoring their service," stated Captain Pattis. "During National Public Safety Telecommunicator Week, we express our deepest gratitude and thank our RCOs for their consistent and unwavering dedication."

In celebrating National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, ISP reaffirms its commitment to supporting and recognizing the invaluable contributions of its telecommunicators in safeguarding communities across the state.

Building Connected Communities: Expanding Access to Sexual Support Services Throughout Idaho

Building Connected Communities: Expanding Access to Sexual Support Services Throughout Idaho

MERIDIAN, Idaho - In alignment with "Building Connected Communities," the Idaho State Police (ISP) proudly announces its ongoing commitment to enhancing access to crucial support services for survivors of sexual assault throughout Idaho - especially in rural communities. As April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, ISP reaffirms its dedication to increasing public awareness and support for survivors across the state.

Recognizing the profound impact of sexual assault on individuals and communities, ISP underscores the importance of accessible and specialized care for survivors. Despite the challenging nature of this issue, ISP encourages survivors to seek immediate support by calling 911 and accessing care from a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) at local hospitals.

"Sexual assault is a pervasive issue that demands our collective attention and action. Survivors must receive the care and support they deserve, regardless of their location," says Deb Wetherelt, Idaho SANE Coordinator with ISP. "Through our ongoing efforts, we aim to bridge the service gap to give survivors in rural communities access to specialized care and resources."

In addition to training initiatives, ISP actively promotes and trains SANE nurses for certification by providing study resources as their expertise and dedication serve survivors and bolster the capacity of rural communities to provide specialized care for survivors.

Further, ISP is proud to announce the rebranding of the ten-year-old Idaho Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (ISAKI) working group as the Idaho Sexual Assault Response Team (ISART). ISAKI was initially created to address previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits in Idaho but quickly expanded to address additional sexual assault response issues in Idaho. This group of state experts in the field of sexual assault prevention and response has helped draft legislation, developed policy and procedure, and guided statewide efforts that enhance law enforcement, medical, and support services for survivors. The new name for the group adds emphasis to the state's collaborative team efforts in support of local Idaho communities addressing sexual assault response. The resources ISART continues to develop include:

-Nurse education and training
-Sexual assault evidence collection facilities in rural communities
-"Soft" law enforcement interview rooms for survivors
-Law enforcement training and continuing education
-Establishment and support of local SARTs who will work in local communities throughout Idaho
-Research into sexual assault response in Idaho and publication of that research to inform policymakers

ISART continues under leadership provided by Idaho State Police Forensic Services.

###

Law enforcement refers to those who had crimes committed against them as victims. However, sexual assault victims are survivors! If you are a survivor, know anyone being victimized, or believe someone needs assistance, there is help:

Idaho State Police Increase Efforts to Combat Distracted Driving in April

BOISE, Idaho - In observance of Distracted Driving Awareness Month, the Idaho State Police (ISP), in collaboration with the Idaho Office of Highway Safety (OHS) and the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD), is intensifying its efforts to combat distracted driving across the state. The initiative, focusing on education and enforcement, aims to remind drivers that Idaho is a hands-free state, emphasizing the importance of engaged driving.

Distracted driving presents itself in various forms: adjusting the radio or GPS, applying makeup, and eating and drinking while behind the wheel. However, cell phone use - specifically, texting, talking, and social media engagement - emerges as the most prevalent and dangerous distraction on our roads. Texting, encompassing messaging activities, is deemed the most dangerous type of distracted driving due to its combination of visual, manual, and cognitive distractions.

"Distracted driving poses a threat to every road user. Any distraction, whether adjusting the radio, applying makeup, or texting, can lead to tragic consequences," says Lieutenant Colonel Sheldon Kelley. "Let's commit to driving responsibly and remind our friends and family to do the same. The focus should be solely on the road ahead when you're behind the wheel."

During 2022 in Idaho, there were over 4,750 distracted driving crashes with 34 fatalities. National Distracted Driving Awareness Month reminds drivers to reassess their behaviors behind the wheel and take responsibility for their actions.

Stay safe and engaged while driving:
-If you're texting, pull over.
-Use a "Designated Texter" so the driver can focus on the road.
-Avoid "App-Surfing" and scrolling on the phone while driving.

Throughout Distracted Driving Awareness Month, but specifically between April 4 and 8, expect increased statewide law enforcement on the roadways as part of the national campaign to remind drivers of the deadly dangers and the legal consequences of distracted driving.

Together, we can make Idaho's roads safer for everyone.

Idaho State Police investigate homicides related to escaped inmate capture

Idaho State Police (ISP) detectives, in collaboration with multiple city, county, and federal agencies, continue to actively investigate two homicides believed to be related to the escape of Skylar Meade from Idaho Department of Corrections custody, with assistance from Nicholas Umphenour, shortly after 2 a.m. on March 20, 2024, in Boise, Idaho.

After fleeing Boise in a stolen Honda Civic, detectives believe Meade and Umphenour drove north through Idaho and encountered 83-year-old James L. Mauney, of Juliaetta, ID, as he walked his dogs near Juliaetta. Mauney and his dogs were taken and driven eastbound in his silver 2019 Chrysler Pacifica. On March 20, in a desolate area near Leland, law enforcement located the abandoned Honda Civic and later found the body of Mauney nearby. At this time, detectives do not believe Mauney knew the suspects.

Also on March 20, ISP worked with the Clearwater County Sheriff's Office to investigate the homicide of 72-year-old Gerald "Don" Henderson at his residence in a secluded area outside Orofino. Mauney's dogs and a pair of shackles (believed to be left by Skylar Meade) were located at Henderson's residence. Detectives believe Henderson may have been acquainted with the suspects, but the duration and extent are unknown. Authorities later returned Mauney's dogs to his family members unharmed.

Based on leads and tips, on March 21, law enforcement located the stolen Chrysler Pacifica at a residence in Filer and believe the suspects may have traveled through Missoula, Montana, to get there. As law enforcement secured the area around the residence, Meade and Umphenour left in different vehicles. Meade was stopped and arrested nearby, while Umphenour attempted to flee but was pursued and ultimately apprehended. Both were captured without further incident, and no gunshots were fired.

During Meade's arrest, a 52-year-old female from Filer was taken into custody on charges related to Meade's flight from the residence. She was booked into the Twin Falls County Jail.

The Clearwater County Coroner's Office and the Nez Perce County Coroner's Office have identified the homicide victims in their respective jurisdictions. However, both causes and manners of death remain under investigation.

The investigation into these criminal acts continue, with law enforcement remaining dedicated to seeking justice for the victims and safeguarding the community's well-being. Given the gravity of the crimes, ISP is grateful for the considerable media attention, valuable community tips, and collaborative efforts by all law enforcement agencies, which played a pivotal role in resolving this case.

As this case remains an active investigation, we do not anticipate any additional updates in the near future.

Law enforcement arrest two after inmate escape

MERIDIAN, Idaho - Since 2:00 a.m. yesterday, March 20, 2024, law enforcement agencies across Idaho have investigated and searched for escaped inmate Skylar Meade and shooting suspect Nicholas Umphenour. Just after 2:00 p.m. today, March 21, 2024, law enforcement located and arrested both males in Twin Falls, Idaho after a vehicle pursuit involving multiple law enforcement agencies. The suspects were taken into custody with no further incident or injury.

When the investigation expanded statewide, the Idaho State Police (ISP) began the collaborative effort among law enforcement agencies and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Following tips and investigative leads, authorities believe the suspects fled northbound from the Treasure Valley to north central Idaho. Through their investigation, detectives located the Honda Civic, used in the escape, near Leland, Idaho. Additionally, law enforcement is investigating two homicides, in separate locations of Nez Perce and Clearwater counties, that are potentially tied to the escape.

Both homicides involve adult male victims and detectives are actively investigating. No further information is available for release on the homicides and the county coroner will provide identity as well as the official cause and manner of death.

Law enforcement believes the capture was successful due to the hundreds of tips from the public and the multiple responding law enforcement agencies.

ISP will continue to investigate the homicides and provide updates on those investigations as well and updates on the arrests in Twin Falls. The Boise Police Department will continue to investigate the inmate escape and the Ada County Sheriff's Office will continue to investigate the officer involved shooting.

Anyone with relevant information or tips on this incident is asked to call the Statewide Tip Line at 1-833-610-1026.

Idaho State Police participates in a statewide effort to reduce aggressive driving

MERIDIAN, Idaho - Idaho State Police (ISP) is actively collaborating with law enforcement agencies statewide to address the pressing issue of aggressive driving. ISP troopers will increase patrols from March 19th to the 30th to target dangerous driving behaviors.

Preliminary data from the Idaho Office of Highway Safety highlights the severity of the problem. Aggressive driving contributed to nearly 14,000 crashes and 103 fatalities in 2023, representing 39% of fatal crashes.

Examples of aggressive driving include speeding, tailgating, reckless lane changes, and disregarding traffic signals. ISP emphasizes the importance of patience, as individual driving decisions significantly impact others.

Parents are urged to discuss the dangers of aggressive driving with their teenage drivers, as statistics show they are four times more likely to be involved in such incidents.

Grants from the Idaho Office of Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration support aggressive driving efforts, enabling enhanced patrols and enforcement.

Don't Tempt Fate on St. Patrick's Day - Get a Sober Ride Home

MERIDIAN, Idaho - As the excitement of St. Patrick's Day approaches, the Idaho State Police (ISP) emphasizes the importance of arranging a sober ride home. From March 14th to 18th, law enforcement agencies across the state will team up with the Idaho Transportation Department's Office of Highway Safety (OHS) to bolster patrols and discourage impaired driving.

Throughout the years, St. Patrick's Day has tragically become one of the deadliest periods on our nation's roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, between 2017 and 2021, 272 lives were lost in drunk driving accidents during this holiday period.

At a local level, throughout 2022, OHS data reveals 1,799 impaired driving crashes in Idaho, resulting in the loss of 110 lives. During this time, law enforcement made 7,781 DUI arrests statewide. These statistics emphasize the importance of getting a sober ride home - not only on St. Patrick's Day but throughout the year.

"Taking a moment to plan for a sober ride can make all the difference in ensuring a safe celebration for everyone," emphasizes ISP Lieutenant Colonel Sheldon Kelley, underscoring the critical importance of proactive planning and responsible decision-making during festive occasions. "Don't tempt fate on St. Patrick's Day; get a sober ride home."

Combatting impaired driving is a collective responsibility. If a friend insists on driving under the influence, intervene and find them a sober ride. Additionally, if you plan on consuming substances that could impair your driving abilities, plan for a safe ride home.

The funding for additional patrols targeting impaired driving enforcement on St. Patrick's Day is made possible through a grant from OHS and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. For further resources on preventing impaired driving, please visit shift-idaho.org/beheretomorrow/.

Idaho State Police Celebrates 85 Years of Service

MERIDIAN, Idaho - The Idaho State Police (ISP) proudly announces its 85th birthday celebration, commemorating nearly a century of dedicated service to the state of Idaho. Even before becoming the Idaho Territory in 1863 or the 43rd state in 1890, Idaho's history lies with our native tribes, the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and determined pioneers on the Oregon Trail. These same qualities of resilience and courage exemplify the men and women of ISP.

Colonel Kedrick Wills, Director of ISP, reflects on the organization's remarkable journey, "As we celebrate this significant milestone, we honor the legacy of those who have served before us and recognize the dedication of the incredible men and women who continue to serve. From The Bureau of Constabulary in 1919, the creation of ISP in 1939, through our 85th birthday, ISP's dedication to the people of Idaho remains the same - Serve and protect the lives, property, and constitutional rights of people in Idaho."

Since its inception, the members of ISP have worked in local communities to aid motorists, educate and enforce traffic safety, investigate crimes, regulate commerce, and support local law enforcement.

"Over 700 talented professionals serve with distinction, and I am confident that they are some of the best Idaho offers," Colonel Wills added. "ISP stands on the successes of giants who came before us, and we continually strive for excellence and to leave a legacy for those who follow."

The 85th birthday celebration will occur at the Idaho State Capitol on February 20th from noon to 3 p.m. The event will be held on the second-floor Rotunda and feature a proclamation ceremony at 1 p.m. to honor and recognize the efforts of the ISP personnel in serving the people of Idaho.

"We invite the public and members of our 67th legislative body to join us in commemorating this milestone event," Colonel Wills concluded.
