The City of Idaho Falls announced Wednesday that following a national search and careful consideration of a very strong group of finalists, a new Police Chief has been selected to succeed Chief Steven Roos after his January 4th retirement.

Capt. Mark McBride will be assuming the responsibility of the Chief position immediately. Since Chief Roos departed, Capt. McBride, who has been an IFPD Captain for the past 11 years, has served as the City’s Interim Chief. Mayor Jared Fuhriman issued this statement about the selection, "I am very pleased to make this announcement and am confident that Chief McBride will do a great job heading our City’s Police Department. With experience managing every division in the Department, Chief McBride brings with him a wealth of institutional knowledge that is invaluable in this position.”

Chief McBride is an Air Force Veteran that has been with IFPD since 1979. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Human Resources Training and Development from Idaho State University as well as certificates from Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command, the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy and an Idaho POST Management certificate.
