In order to manage all of the operations, the department is broken into four divisions. Each division is led by a Police Captain, who reports to the Chief of Police.  The four divisions are: Uniform Division; Investigative Division; Professional Standards Division; and, Services Division.


The Uniform Division is tasked with street patrol operations. These officers are highly visible in uniform and marked patrol cars Within the Uniform Division, there are Patrol Officers, Traffic Officers, K-9 Officers (police dogs), and Neighborhood Patrol Officers. Neighborhood Patrol Officers are assigned permanently to a specific neighborhood. The Investigative Division is tasked with investigation all serious crimes. The Detectives of this division specialize in areas such as homicide, robbery, forgery and fraud, property crimes, computer crimes, narcotics, child abuse and domestic violence


The Professional Standards Division is tasked with promoting and maintaining a high level of professionalism throughout the department. Within this division are the Training Unit, Community Partnership, DARE and School Resource Officers, Media Relations Officer, Police Chaplains, and Police Cadets. The Services Division is tasked with coordinating and managing the civilian elements of the police department such as the Communications Center (police and fire dispatch), Records Unit, Internal Investigations, and Animal Control Shelter.






Steve Roos is a captain on the Idaho Falls Police Department (Idaho).  He is also the author two novels: Deep Cover and Double Jeopardy. According to the book description of Deep Cover, “When young undercover police officer Jeff Foster takes on a special assignment--that of investigating Dennis Margo, a major drug dealer--he doesn't realize just how far the case will take him. He works his way into the dark world of drugs and violence, becoming the personal bodyguard to a dealer and an eyewitness to cold-blooded murder as he attempts to close in on a dangerous drug lord. Along the way he finds himself confronting some troubling questions: How far should he carry his undercover identity? Is his work compatible with his membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? And how much should he reveal to Stephanie Evans, the woman he loves?”
