The Ponderay Police Department was founded in 1994 with three sworn officers and one patrol vehicle. As of May, 2016, we have six sworn officers on staff and an administrative assistant whose primary duties include the day to day administrative functions such as records, evidence and walk-in reports. We have four fully outfitted Ford Explorer Police Interceptor Units. The Ponderay Police Department is located in a re-fitted log home located within the business district of the City of Ponderay and is the only department of its kind in the State of Idaho. The department provides service to both the residents of and visitors to the City of Ponderay.
It is through the dedication of the men and women of the Ponderay Police Department that the department is able to handle the diverse challenges that are presented on a daily basis.
