Captain Danny Bunderson is set to retire after 38 years on the Idaho State Police force.
Idaho State Police Captain Danny Bunderson has served in the Idaho State Police Force since 1977, but ISP's longest-serving trooper is stepping down Wednesday, Dec. 31, after 38 years on the force.
"I learned early on in my career that building positive working relationships was the only way to effectively provide quality law enforcement to the people of Idaho, the type of quality they expect from their law enforcement communities," Bunderson wrote in a press release.
Bunderson currently serves as ISP District 6 Commander, and has served in ISP's Vehicle Theft Unit, for 13 years as a trooper, and as district commander in two ISP districts. He also graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's National Academy in Quantico, Va., in 1997.
His achievements include the reconstruction of the District 2 office in Lewiston after it was struck by a runaway truck on Lewiston Hill, serving as a member of the governing board of the Eastern Idaho Critical Incident Task Force, and working with numerous local law enforcement agencies to establish a means of communication along the US12/US93/SH28 corridor by installing emergency call stations in preparation of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial.
Lieutenant Steve Davis, supervisor of District 6 Investigations for the last decade, has been promoted to Captain to replace Bunderson as ISP's District 6 Commander starting Thursday, Jan. 1.
