Idaho Falls Police Department

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho: The Idaho Falls Police Department and the Idaho Falls Fraternal
Order of Police is proud to announce the launch of its newest series of public service
announcements – “Cop2ition”.
“Cop2ition” provides crime prevention education relevant to the citizens of Idaho Falls in a
humorous and informative video format. This series will feature intuition, advice and tips
from two Idaho Falls cops – Officers Bart Whiting and Dustin Howell – with the “know how”
on a variety of subjects, including internet safety, vehicle burglaries and home security.
“As an officer, I respond to crimes that could have been preventable,” Officer Bart Whiting
said. “Which is why these new crime prevention PSAs are important. We hope the
community will not only watch and enjoy the “Cop2ition” videos, but also apply and share
what they learn.”
The IFPD strives to provide regular crime prevention education to the public to help fulfill
its mission to “create an environment free from crime and disorder through efficient
service and valuable community collaboration.”
“Maintaining a safe community cannot be done solely by the police department,” Idaho
Falls Chief Mark McBride said. “Community members, when armed with the right
educational tools, can make a huge impact on the city’s overall safety.”
“Cop2ition” is made possible through the partnership of the IFPD and the Idaho Falls FOP, a
local labor and civic organization comprised of active sworn Idaho Falls Police Officers and
other non‐sworn civilian staff.

By Journal Staff

IDAHO FALLS — Arrests in Idaho Falls on Wednesday include three who are facing felony charges, one of whom is accused of leaving the scene of accident after he allegedly struck a man with his car and another accused of lewd conduct.

Kevin F. Danielewicz, 46, was arrested at his residence on Park Avenue after allegedly leaving the scene of that accident in the parking lot of the Common Cents on 17th Street. According to a release from the IFPD, Danielewicz, driving a green van struck a gas truck and a 35-year-old man before fleeing the scene.

The incident did injure the man who was struck and caused a gas spill. Danielewicz is charged with felony leaving the scene of an accident.

Police also arrested Skyler Standly, 19, who was taken into custody on a warrant. Standly is charged with attempted strangulation stemming from a May 29 incident at Snake River Landing where he allegedly became physical with a 20-year-old woman with whom he was involved in a verbal altercation.

When the woman went to retrieve her belongings from Standly’s car, he allegedly grabbed her throat. Police say the woman reportedly tried to run away from the car but Standly knocked her down and grabbed her throat again.

James R. Mottor, 30, was arrested and charged with lewd conduct with a child under 16 based on a months-long investigation by police that began in January when a woman reported that her 14-year-old had been inappropriately touched.
