Public Information and Media

Contacts

The responsibility for furnishing information upon request to members of the media concerning routine departmental investigations and incidents is vested in the divisional commanders, their sergeants and/or the Department Public Information Office. Lt. Terry Thueson oversees the Public Information Office. He may be reached at (208) 735-7277 or via email.

Policy

It is the policy of the Twin Falls Police Department to promptly make available to the media certain reports of newsworthy activities and information which are not detrimental to the location, apprehension or interrogation of a criminal suspect and which are not personally damaging to the victim of the criminal act or of a personally sensitive nature.

We believe that cooperation with all accredited representatives of the media is important in promoting good public relations. It is our philosophy that a cooperative attitude and a courteous explanation, when necessary, will result in a more desirable presentation of the facts.
