On October 16, 2018, at 1517 hours, the McCall Police Department responded to a firearm violation at the intersection of Davis Ave. and Lick Creek Dr. Upon arrival, it was determined that a juvenile subject had discharged a firearm at a deer within the city limits resulting in the demise of the animal. Officers from Idaho Fish and Game assisted in the investigation and the animal was removed from the location. The incident remains under investigation at this time. As a reminder, it is the time of year that we have deer herds moving into town for the winter. Please be diligent as you drive around town. They live here too.

It's official! Our new address is 550 E. Deinhard Lane Suite B. We are located in the same building as the Valley County Court Annex across the street from Idaho Department of Lands and Fish and Game.

The summer weather in McCall has brought out a lot of bicyclists. Unfortunately, it has also brought out some hooligans that have been cutting bike locks and stealing bikes. We have had a rash of bicycle thefts over the last month. If you do like to ride your bike around town remember these things: 1. Write down your bikes serial number, identifying information, and take photos of it. 2. If you can, secure it in a well lit area. 3. If you can, use a "U-lock" to secure it and not a cable. Also, we have several recovered bikes that may have been stolen. If you are missing a bike please call us during regular business hours to find out if we have yours.

SAVE YOUR INDEPENDENCE THIS JULY 4TH: DRIVE SOBER OR GET PULLED OVER Drunk Driving Is Illegal Driving On July 4th, our country celebrates its independence with picnics, barbecues, and backyard parties. Don’t let your independence be compromised by an unwise—and deadly—decision to drink and drive. This Fourth of July, law enforcement in McCall Idaho are taking part in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign June 29 through July 5, 2018, to put an end to drunk driving. This means you’ll see increased enforcement accepting no excuses for those who drive impaired. This Independence Day, let’s all work together to spread the life-saving message that drunk driving is unacceptable, deadly, and illegal behavior. It puts drivers and passengers at risk, as well as other road users. In fact, in 2016, an average of one person was killed in a drunk-driving crash every 50 minutes. As you, your friends, and your family head out to the July Fourth festivities this summer, keep safety at the forefront. During the Fourth of July holiday weekend, make sure you plan for a safe week of festivities, keeping in mind this vital message: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. Please remember these drunk-driving statistics as you prepare to party this summer: • In 2016, 10,497 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes—almost a third of all traffic fatalities nationwide. To put it in perspective, that’s equal to about 20 jumbo jets crashing, with no survivors. • It is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher in all 50 States and the District of Columbia—no exceptions. • Over the 2016 Fourth of July holiday (6 p.m. July 2 to 5:59 a.m. July 6), 188 people were killed in crashes involving at least one driver or motorcycle operator with a BAC of .08 or higher. This is a 28-percent increase from 2015, during which 146 people were killed during the same holiday period. • During the 2016 July Fourth holiday period, nearly half of those who died in a vehicle crash were involved in a crash with at least one driver or motorcycle operator with a BAC of .15 or higher—almost twice the legal limit. • Alcohol impairment among drivers involved in fatal crashes during the 2016 July Fourth holiday period was more than three times higher at night than it was during the day. • From 2012 to 2016, there were 780 people killed in drunk-driving crashes over the Fourth of July holiday periods. Plan A Safe Independence Day Don’t let plans get away from you—it’s imperative to your safety, and the safety of others, to plan a responsible ride home from your celebration. If you leave your house unprepared to get home safely, you may not be in the right frame of mind to make the best choices by the end of the night. Here are a few tips to help you prepare for a safe night of fun: • Remember that it is never okay to drive after drinking. Even if you’ve had only one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation or a ride share service to get home safely. • Download NHTSA’s SaferRide mobile app, available on Google Play for Android devices: (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nhtsa.SaferRide&hl=en), and Apple’s iTunes Store for iOS devices: (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/saferride/id950774008?mt=8). SaferRide allows users to call a taxi or a predetermined friend, and identifies the user’s location so he or she can be picked up. • If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact Valley County Dispatch (208) 382-5160. • Have a friend who is about to drink and drive? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get your friend home safely. Drunk Driving Comes at a Cost Drunk driving can cost you your life, but it can also cost you financially. Here’s how: • If you’re caught drinking and driving, you could face jail time. Imagine trying to explain that to your friends and family or your place of employment if you’re unable to report to the office. • Drinking and driving could cause you to lose your driver’s license and your vehicle. This could inhibit you from getting to work, resulting in lost wages and, potentially, job loss. • If you kill someone while driving drunk, you could face manslaughter charges. • Financially, a DUI arrest could cost you up to $10,000 in attorney fees, fines, car towing, repairs, higher insurance rates, and lost time at work. This Fourth of July, commit to only driving when you’re 100-percent sober. As you head out to celebrate, remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

We had a kayak turned in to the Police Department. If you are missing one please contact us with the color, make, model, and possible location it was lost.

New hours for this event! 8:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.

Buckle Up. It saves lives!!!

May 28th marks the start of the 100 deadliest days in Idaho. The McCall Police Department will be working in cooperation with Idaho Transportation Department to add extra patrols during the dates of May 21st to June 3rd. These extra patrols will focus on seat belt usage. Studies show seat belt use drastically reduces the odds of serious injury or death in vehicle accidents and Idaho is consistently below the national average for seat belt usage. We would also like to remind parents, per Idaho State Code 49-672, all children must be secured in a child safety seat until the age of 7. Recent studies show only 64% percent of children between the ages of 4-6 are restrained properly in a child seat. Parents/Drivers, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of children traveling with you!!!
