Our police, firefighters and other first responders put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. They deserve our full support.
As a city, we must continue investing in their training and providing the most up-to-date equipment and infrastructure so they can do their job safely and effectively.
The overall crime rate in Boise is 20% lower than the national average. Over the past decade, nearly every type of major crime has decreased and Boise is consistently identified as one of the safest cities in America.
I will continue working closely with our police department to assure they have the tools they need to keep our citizens safe.
