Federal Law Enforcement Leaders to Hold Community Open House September 27 at Coeur d’Alene Public Library
COEUR D’ALENE – U.S. Marshal Brian Underwood, FBI Supervisory Special Agent Richard Collodi and U.S. Attorney Wendy Olson will hold a community open house meeting Tuesday, September 27, at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, 702 East Front Street. Underwood, Collodi and Olson will be in the public meeting room from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. to meet and visit with persons interested in learning more about federal law enforcement in Idaho.
“We will be available for any question, concern or issue community members would like to talk about,” said Olson. “Frankly, we simply want members of the public, whom we serve, to have a chance to personally visit with their federal law enforcement leaders in Idaho. We recognize that it is not always practical for people to come to our offices.”
“Confidence in government and the enforcement of law is achieved by providing true justice and being sincere in our working relationships with all people,” said Underwood. “In Idaho, the work of our local law enforcement is really amazing to see – and we are proud to work with such great professionals and police leadership. Like our local law enforcement partners, we want to ensure that we are doing our part in community policing and relationship building.”
“We are honored to be part of a strong and dedicated law enforcement community serving northern Idaho,” said Collodi. “It is important to take every opportunity to maintain lasting relationships with the community in which we serve.”
Underwood and Olson were both appointed to their positions in 2010 by the President. They serve the entire state of Idaho, which is a single federal judicial district. Collodi supervises the FBI’s Coeur d’Alene office. He has been with the FBI since 2002, and has served in three offices.
