Pocatello city officials say they've calmed some of their concerns over appropriate response protocols between city police and campus security at Idaho State University.
In particular, city officials pointed to a September incident in which an ISU professor accidentally shot himself. The Pocatello city attorney had accused ISU's officers of delaying a call to Pocatello police to respond to the incident. In another incident, the city attorney accused ISU security officers of pulling over a driver and administering a blood alcohol test before calling Pocatello police.
ISU President Arthur Vailas told KIDK-TV
that his school's officials will "work with the city to establish means for addressing future concerns."
And Pocatello Police Chief Scott Marchand said he would be meeting on a regular, monthly basis with ISU Public Safety Director Stephen Chatterton.
