  • call the loca police station and ask, that's what I did when I moved to Everett, Washington. I asked what area were not good for a young family to live in.

  • Try this Pocatello Crime Tracker

    Then just keep reading that LocalNews8 website on the happenings there.

  • I got this websight from my girlfrien and it looks up felons in your neighborhood and it does work. I am also on a web page for pedofiles moving in my neighborhood, great for anyone w/kids, or Gr-kids. Hope it helps anyone out there who uses this.

  • I've been to Pocatello a few times...I live in Twin Falls...and I honestly would not want to live there. If you can look into some of the other towns near there. My cousin lives in Lava Hot Springs..about 35 miles from Pocatello and she loves it there.

  • lists people who have felonies but they do not have the correct information for some of the people..for example I looked someone up and it has his brother's name as an alias. His brother is also a felon but they never used each others names as an alias.
    Felon spy obviously does not have accurate infrormation. Their father is also listed on the sight and he never had more than a few traffic tickets. He was not a felon.
