The International Brotherhood of Police Officers Local #486 represents approximately 240 police officers and sergeants that serve the citizens of Boise. Our union members are the large majority of front line personnel for the Boise Police Department. We are all astonished and infuriated by the utterly detestable views, writings and comments made by a former Captain of the Boise Police Department. We don’t yet have all of the right words, but we want to promptly and unequivocally condemn his racist words and actions in the strongest possible terms.
Our officers work very hard to earn the trust of our community, and we diligently work to treat each member of our diverse community with respect. We firmly denounce the comments he made about our community members, officers, and the public at large and remain dedicated to serving and protecting our community. We refuse to allow the intolerable views of one person to affect our relationship with the community.
