The Mission of the Canyon County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office is to protect the community and facilitate a well-functioning County government by pursuing justice and providing accurate and ethical counsel with dedication, courage and integrity.
The Prosecutor’s Office works hard every day to create a safer, more productive County.
Welcome to the website for the Canyon County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. As Prosecuting Attorney, I take my responsibility as a prosecutor, county attorney, law enforcement leader, and community partner very seriously.
I have assembled a first-rate team of professionals who are committed to our mission of protecting the community and facilitating a well-functioning County government by pursuing justice and providing accurate and ethical counsel with dedication, courage, and integrity. We work to inspire confidence in the criminal justice system and county government by:
- Working to reduce crime in Canyon County while pursing justice
- Educating and engaging the community
- Creating respectful and credible partnerships with all constituents
I am very excited that you have taken the time to visit this website. We need YOU to be an involved citizen of this community. You are my office’s most powerful crime-fighting tool. We have created this site to provide you and all the citizens of Canyon County with an open and transparent look into the criminal justice system, and in particular, this Office.
I encourage you to navigate through the different links on this site where you will find detailed information regarding the criminal justice process, victim’s rights, budgeting and purchasing, and much more. It is my hope that this information will assist you in not only evaluating the performance of my Office but also facilitate your helpful involvement in the criminal justice system.
The vision I have for my Office is that it be regarded as the best and most professional Prosecuting Attorney’s Office in the State of Idaho. Each of my employees is empowered to “be the change they want to see” and work every day to prosecute and prevent crime and to facilitate a well-functioning County government. I ask you to engage in this vision as together we can strive to achieve justice for all residents of Canyon County.
While we can’t stop all crimes, by working together we can create a safer, freer community. Together, we are far more powerful than any one of us can be alone.
Thank you for your participation and partnership.
