The City of Kuna began contracting for law enforcement services with the Ada County Sheriff's Office in 1998. In addition to a Police Chief, there are two field supervisors, eight deputies, two detectives, a K9 Narcotics dog, and a field services technician committed to patrolling and protecting Kuna. These officers can call on fellow ACSO deputies from the County for help when necessary.
The partnership between Kuna and the Ada County Sheriff's Office means the City has access to all of the County's law enforcement resources without the administrative costs of running a fully-independent police department.
