A big thanks to Lowe's in Pocatello for helping out with our "Give the Cops a Bird" turkey collection. They dropped off a freezer for the turkeys to be stored in. Let's see if we can fill it up now. Remember you can drop off frozen turkeys at the Pocatello Police Department anytime day or night but business hours are the best time to come in.

The Pocatello Police Department wants you to “Give the Cops a Bird.” The Pocatello Police Department will be collecting frozen turkeys to donate to the Idaho Food Bank. For every turkey donated to the Police Department, Idaho Central Credit Union will match that donation with another turkey. As you see our officers around town "give them a bird" or come into the Pocatello Police Department to drop off a frozen turkey. Let's see how many turkeys we can get to the food bank

Bullying is heartbreaking. It is now seen as a serious problem by parents, educators, medical and mental health professionals, and scholars. Bullying is as a devastating form of abuse that can have long-term effects on youthful victims, robbing them of self-esteem, isolating them from their peers, causing them to drop out of school, and even prompting health problems and suicide.
