We are receiving a vast number of reports of malicious injury by graffiti and we need your help in identifying the suspects committing this criminal activity.

Although we have had several graffiti reports since May, we had 15 reports of graffiti in the past two weeks alone. Not only is this disheartening to the homeowner, but it can be quite an expensive undertaking to remove the paint and /or repair the damaged property.

The suspects are active between 11:00 pm – 4:00 am. They are mostly targeting residential fences and property, vehicles, and commercial buildings, however, public spaces and schools are also being damaged throughout Boise.

Please alert your neighbors of an increase in activity. For those who get up during the night, encourage them to look out a window and if they see criminal or suspicious activity occurring at that time to call 911 immediately. If you have any information on this crime, please contact Non-Emergency Dispatch at 377-6790 or you can remain anonymous and call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.

Thank you,

Happy Birthday Boise!

July 7 is the big day of Boise’s sesquicentennial celebration, the official Boise birthday.  The first plat was filed July 7, 1863 and Boise became a city.   The big finale is the BOISE 150 Sesqui-Party on Sunday, July 7, our 150th birthday party. It starts at 11:30 a.m., when Mayor Bieter joins the Boise Bicycle Project in leading a bike parade from City Hall to Julia Davis Park.

The main party starts at noon and runs through 5 p.m. There will be music and entertainment at the Gene Harris Bandshell and at four other locations throughout the park, including a vintage fashion and car show, Civil War re-enactments, community booths, BOISE 150 merchandise, more than 20 food trucks and two beer gardens. (Visit for a complete listing and other details.)

See you at the party.
