Direct Mail Campaign not a Scam

Recent mailers have gone out to residents in the State of Idaho from the Idaho Sheriffs’ Association on behalf of your County Sheriff. If you have received such a mailer, we want you to know that it is a legitimate request and completely voluntary. The Boise address listed on the flier is the Idaho Sheriffs’ Association business address.


One of the most significant resources to Sheriffs’ Offices throughout the state is the Idaho Sheriffs’ Association.  This most trusted organization has supported the Office of Sheriff in many ways for over 55 years.


The Idaho Sheriffs’ Association has long provided specialized services to assist deputies, jailers, other staff members, and the Sheriff.  The Association services include but are not limited to; Law Enforcement Training and Education, Sheriffs Round Table Discussions, Improved Statewide Communications, Victim Notification Services, Off-Highway Vehicle Safety, Search & Rescue, Jail Standards and Inspections, Concealed Weapons Licensing, Public Safety Legislation, and Youth Scholarship Programs.


The Idaho Sheriffs’ Association is a qualified 501c3 non-profit organization and receives funding by goodwill statewide citizen contributions through its Honorary Membership Program. For additional information, contact the Idaho Sheriffs’ Association.

Please note that the return address used is P. O. Box 16325 Boise, ID 83715 for our direct mail campaign.
