Response Plan Changes
Due to an overwhelming amount of ever-increasing calls for service over the past few years, we have implemented a response plan in order to give our patrol officers some time to do “proactive police work.” This plan will give your officers some time to go out and find crime, rather than wait for you to be a victim of crime. While crime reporting is necessary and we expect to have crimes reported to us, we are often several steps behind the criminals when some crimes are reported days after they happen or no evidence is left at the scene to catch a criminal. This plan will not prevent all crime in the City of Nampa, however we are expecting it to give your officers some extra time and our community some enhanced services.
Changes to what Nampa Patrol Officers responded to are as follows:
A firework call for service will be created for all officers to view. If available, an officer can perform an area check to locate the source. If no officer is available, the call will be cleared. An officer will only be radio dispatched if someone is directly shooting aerial fireworks at another person, vehicle, or building. If an officer responds and locates the source of the complaint, enforcement action will be taken at the officer’s discretion.
