One of the ways we work with the community is by providing a website of crime prevention and safety advice, as well as offering some trustworthy links where you may gain additional information. You will find safety information on subjects; including bullying and ways to deal with bullies (anonymously reporting criminal activity), finding safe routes to school and after school safety, bicycle safety and rules, firearm safety, including courses for both NRA basic pistol and hunter’s safety. You will also find our crime reports and activity summary, wanted persons list, parking rules and parking pass information, and community programs ran through the Police Department such as DARE, Shop with a Cop, RAD (Rape Aggression Defense), the drug take back program, and free car seat inspections. There is even information about staying safe around animals and the animal shelter has a section offering advice on common behavior problems, from barking to running away, and you can report a lost or found animal or there is an adoptable animal list if you are looking for a pet. All this is in addition to the information you might expect to find such as what is community policing, how is a detective different than a patrol officer or what kinds of specialized training does our Police Department have, who is the Chief of Police or how do I contact the Police Department. Because of the amount of information available, the Rexburg Police Department maintains a separate Website from the City of Rexburg at

It is the mission of the Rexburg Police Department to enhance the quality of life in the City of Rexburg by working with the community.

We support the U.S. and Idaho Constitutions in equally enforcing the law, preserving the peace, and reducing fear by providing a safe community and environment for our citizens and visitors.
