The mission of the City of Eagle Police is to focus on what matters most — creating safer places for you to live, work and play.
In 1996, the city began contracting with the Ada County Sheriff’s Office for enhanced law enforcement services. The City of Eagle Police is staffed with a police chief, two sergeants, eight patrol officers, two detectives, a code enforcement officer and one administrative staff.
Eagle Police officers can call on fellow Ada County Sheriff’s deputies working outside of Eagle for assistance when necessary. The partnership between the City of Eagle and the ACSO means the City has access to all of the County’s law enforcement resources without the administrative costs of running a fully-independent police department.
