No member of the Department shall release any information pertaining to another agencies arrest, pending case, or investigation; an exception to this rule may occur when the Chief of Police or his/her designee prepares a press release of an arrest, pending investigation or investigation involving members of the Quad Cities Drug Task Force.
H. Allowing Media to Enter Area of an Incident or Crime Scene
Police lines may be established to prevent persons from entering the area of an incident or crime scene. Dependant upon the tactical situation and the likelihood of jeopardizing police operations, members of the news media may or may not be allowed in these areas. Authorization for entry is normally dependant upon the judgment of the supervisor present. While members of the media may be permitted in the area of a crime scene or a serious incident, they do not have the authority to be within an area that has been secured to preserve evidence, or at any location where their presence jeopardizes police operations, or on private property.
Off Duty Employment
It is the policy of the Lewiston Police Department that all employees will obtain approval from the Chief of Police before engaging in off-duty employment. (Section 1705, City Employee Manual)
A. Employment: The provision of a service, whether or not in exchange for a fee or other service.
B. Extra-Duty Employment: Any employment that is conditioned on the actual or potential use of law enforcement powers by the police officer employee.
C. Regular Off-Duty Employment: Any employment that will not require the use, or potential use of law enforcement powers by the off-duty employee.
There are two types of off-duty employment in which an employee may engage:
A. Regular Off-Duty Employment: Employees may engage in off-duty employment that meets the following criteria:
1. Employment of a non-police nature in which vested police powers are not a condition of employment; the work provides no real or implied law enforcement service to the employer and is not performed during assigned hours of duty.
2. Employment that presents no potential conflict of interest between his/her duties as a police officer and his/her duties for his/her secondary employer.
3. Employment that does not constitute a threat to the status or dignity of the police as a professional occupation.
B. Extra-Duty Employment: Police Officers may engage in extra-duty employment as follows:
1. Where a governmental entity has a contract agreement with the City of Lewiston for police services.
2. Officers will be subject to all rules and procedures of the department.
3. Officers will be expected to ask for advice from an on-duty supervisor or command officer in all circumstances of an unusual nature or about which the employee has questions.
4. Officers will be required to make any necessary reports during the course of extra-duty employment.
C. General Rules:
1. Employees will not be permitted to engage in off-duty employment eight (8) hours prior to his/her regular tour of duty to permit a reasonable period of rest time.
2. Off-duty employment will not be approved for any employee whose sick record indicates a lack of strength or stamina necessary to sustain both employments.
3. Entry-level employees will not be permitted to perform off-duty employment during his/her initial training period (i.e. Field Training Program).
4. A separate request form will be necessary for each employer, if more than one.
5. Employee must keep his/her supervisor, Division Commander and the Chief of Police informed on any change of off-duty employment status.
V. PROCESSING OF REQUEST
The Chief of Police shall receive the off-duty request (Appendix A) within five business days of submittal.
Processing DUI Suspects
Drunk Driver: Any person who is driving or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level in excess of the statutory limits set forth in Idaho Code or under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or other intoxicating substances.
A. Once probable cause for the continuance of the investigation is established, the officer will stop the vehicle and contact the driver. If the driver exhibits indications of intoxication, the audio recorder, if available, will be actuated.
B. Based upon the observations, the officer will then require the driver to perform field sobriety tests to allow a determination of whether or not to arrest the driver. The following tests, unless circumstances do not allow them, will be given in this order:
1. Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus
2. Walk and Turn
3. One Leg Stand
Additionally, officers may require other test(s), such as; reciting the alphabet, counting backwards (using at least 20 numbers), finger to nose, etc. or any other test the officer is comfortable in administering, when circumstances dictate.
C. If the officer decides to make an arrest, the suspect will be handcuffed, searched and placed into the patrol unit.
D. The driver will be transported to the Nez Perce County Annex, Intoxilyzer Room, for the administration of the evidentiary test requested by the officer.
E. If a breath test is to be offered, the officer will conduct a visual check to assure that nothing foreign is in the suspect’s mouth. The officer will record the time from the Intoxilyzer on the instrument printer card.
F. The ALS Advisory Form will either be read to the subject or the audio CD will be played, and the officer will attempt to answer questions. The form does not have to be read verbatim, but the person should be substantially informed of the information on the form. If the subject agrees to evidentiary test(s), the first choice should be breath. The CD is provided in either English or Spanish.
1. Two breath samples should be obtained. If the suspect provides only one valid sample, it is a legal test and does not constitute a refusal.
2. If the suspect does not provide a sufficient breath sample, the officer should inquire if the suspect suffers from a physical condition which prevents him/her from successfully completing the breath test. If so, the officer should request blood (unless the suspect demonstrates a fear of needles), then the third option is urine.
3. If a urine test is administered and the sample is for alcohol analysis only, the officer shall have the subject “void” (empty bladder), wait the necessary time (approximately twenty minutes) collect a sample and submit it for analysis.
Note: When collecting urine for the analysis of inhalants or other drugs, it is not necessary to perform a “void” and any initial urine sample that is collected may be used for analysis.
G. Upon completion of the testing procedure and the person is determined to be legally intoxicated; or who submits to a blood or urine test; or who refuses to submit to the requested test, they shall be incarcerated in the Nez Perce County Jail.
a. Persons arrested for DUI who are under the age of eighteen will be released to a parent, guardian or responsible adult or as a last resort, will be placed in the Juvenile Detention Facility.
b. Persons arrested for DUI who do not have a blood alcohol level over the legal limit; and no competent evidence exists to establish use of drugs or other intoxicating substances will be released. They will be provided transportation to their vehicle or other local destination.
c. A person that is hospitalized as a result of an accident or injury, or a person that the jail facility will not accept should be issued a complaint and summons, released to a responsible person or allowed to remain at the treating facility.
H. A written report will be completed which may include; narrative, supplemental(s), 18-8002 Advisory, Alcohol Influence form, Rights Warning, Citation, Probable Cause forms and the Intoxilyzer print out, in addition to any other necessary forms not yet determined.
Public Records Access
It shall be the policy of the Lewiston Police Department to allow full public access to the records of the department, as specified in Idaho State Code 9-335 through 9-348, while restricting disclosure of information that may compromise an on-going investigation or which is exempt from disclosure under this law, case law, or other laws of the State of Idaho, or United States.
To ensure that the release of records are handled in a fair and consistent manner, all requests under the Idaho Public Records Law shall be made in writing. Exceptions to this provision shall be made only in cases of releases to other criminal justice agencies or in accordance with published guidelines for documents which do not need prior review, such as traffic collision reports.
