A 28-year veteran of law enforcement will be the Pocatello Police Department’s Community Relations Officer.
Recently, Chief Scott Marchand named Corporal Kirk Howe to the post. The position serves as a liaison to different groups in the Pocatello community with a focus on building partnerships with civic, educational, professional, and government organizations.
“Corporal Howe was selected because of his knowledge of the Police Department and its operation, as well as his knowledge and his involvement in the community over his lifetime,” said Chief Scott Marchand.
“I look forward to working with residents of all different backgrounds and finding out the ways that the Pocatello Police Department can help strengthen ties in our community,” Cpl. Howe said.
Previously, Cpl. Howe has served in the patrol and detective divisions in the department. In August, Howe was the recipient of two honors from the department. He received the Lifesaving Award and Law Enforcement Purple Heart for his part in apprehending a suspect in 2015.
