Boise PD is acquiring a dominant number of out of state command staff under Chief Ryan Lee. The latest newcomer is Deputy Chief Tammany Brooks who is currently chief in Antioch, California.
Lee and long time Boise coppers tell us the reason for the “outsiders” is that sergeant pay–and union security–is enough of an incentive for officers to not apply for the lieutenant and higher jobs.
Chief Lee has hired a couple of lieutenants from Portland, a captain from Oakland, California and now a deputy chief also from California.
