Is this little guys yours? Found in the northeast side of town. Please private message us or call Sircomm at 208324-1991.

And like that, Chief Smith and Officer Mix wrangle up the Turkey. It was safely transported to our petting zoo. If you’d like your turkey back, please contact SIRCOMM at 208-324-1911. You must say “gobble gobble” when they answer the phone... or you can message us directly on our Facebook page. In which case you’ll have to do an embarrassing dance to get your bird back. ✌️

Once again another animal has escaped from the Shoshone petting zoo... but in all seriousness, if you’re missing a Turkey and live near the 500 block of N. Fir St.... please come get it. It’s terrorizing the neighborhood. 😑😑😑

The City of Shoshone Police Department would like to welcome it’s newest full time Officer, Alex Mix. Officer Mix is a Marine Corps Vet, and comes with a wealth of knowledge. We are very excited to have him at our department. If you see Officer Mix out and about, please give him a warm welcome.

After a rigorous 10 weeks of intense training, the City of Shoshone Police Department would like to extend our congratulations to Officer Alex Rodriguez, and all of the post class #193 who graduated the Idaho POST academy today.

The City of Shoshone Police department would like to thank everyone who came out to the ‘Trunk or Treat’ event tonight. It was a huge success with an excess of 150 kids coming through. We would also like to thank Mrs. Smith (Chief Smith’s Wife) for setting up and decorating our vehicle, as well as handing out all the candy! We may be biased... but we feel like our vehicle was decorated the best 😬. Thank you again to all of those who came out, we love our little community! (Unfortunately we didn’t get a picture of our vehicle once it was fully decorated... those trick or treaters came out of nowhere, and it became a wild feeding frenzy. Anyways, the one picture we have of our vehicle doesn’t do it justice.. 🙄 but we still had a blast regardless dressed up as the “little red riding hood theme”.

Is anyone missing a pig? All jokes aside... yes we have a loose pig in the 600 block of E. 5th St. If you know where he belongs, either call SIRCOMM at 208-324-1911, or by messaging us on our Facebook page directly. 🤠

Good evening everyone! The City of Shoshone Police Department, and the City of Shoshone will be participating in the ‘Trunk-or-Treat’ taking place in the parking lot of the LDS Church tomorrow, Wednesday October 31st. The event starts at 6PM. We hope to see you there! As always, we want to remind motorists to drive slower than normal in residential areas. Please be aware that children are not always paying attention, and don’t always look before crossing roadways. SPD also wants to remind parents that it’s a good idea to put things that illuminate on your children, such as glow sticks or flash lights. These can be found at the dollar store for those on a budget. We hope you all have a safe and wonderful Halloween!

As few of you know, and most of you don’t, our very own Corporal Thongsana serves both his community and country. Earlier this year, Cpl.

Is anybody missing this sweet little boy? He was picked up last night, and misses his family like crazy. Appears to be some kind of a lab mix with a white patch on his chest. He was found in the 500 block of East 3rd St. Help us find his family by messaging us directly on our Facebook page, or by contacting SIRCOMM 208-324-1911 if you know the owner.

Sometimes we get caught up sharing missing dogs, funny memes, or other non-pressing items, and forget to share great things like this. SPD has recently and kinda recentlyish hired two Officers. We are so unbelievably happy to have them join our department. They are both highly trained Officers, who come with a wealth of knowledge. Please welcome Officer Cory Smith who started with us on July 11th, and Officer Marisol Towell who started with us this week. We are so pleased to have you both! - Chief Smith

I double dog dare you to do it. 😬😂

On this day, 17 years ago, The United States of America was brought to it’s knees. But what the enemy didn’t know was that we don’t stay down. We got up, dusted ourselves off, and stood stronger than we ever have before. On this day we lost thousands of innocent lives, fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters went to work for the very last time, kissing their families goodbye, not knowing it would be the last. On the day we lost hundreds of first responders who put everyone else’s safety above their own. They ran into the rubble, fire, and crashing buildings knowing it would be the last thing they ever did. So on this day, if you see a first responder, Medic, Fire Fighter, Military member, or Police Officer, please tell them thank you. They are the backbone of America. We will never forget, not only today, but everyday!

Now we here at SPD don’t generally dabble into politics or “hot” topics... we generally stay on the safe side and remain neutral... however we’re feeling feisty today. 😬😬😬😎😎😎 #shotsfired #justkidding #weloveourfirefighters

Is anyone missing a horse? It was found in the 300 block of N. Grape St. We attempted to commandeer it as our new means of patrol, however none of us are that great of riders... Instead of getting injured by getting bucked off, we corralled it in the yard next to 305 N. Grape St. Please contact us via Facebook or by calling SIRCOMM at 208-324-1911 if you know where or who it belongs to.
