Most police officers are more than happy to retire after twenty years of police service. One local man has stayed with the profession for almost half a century. Captain Terry Felsman will retire on Tuesday after more than 41 years of service to the Pocatello Police Department. Captain Felsman started with the Pocatello Police Department in 1974, after having completed the Law Enforcement program at Idaho State University. Felsman’s hard work and dedication compelled him through the ranks, spending the last eight years as Captain of the Investigation Division. “I’m proud of the homicide cases we have cleared recently to include the Red Elk and Nori Jones cases”’ said Felsman. Captain Felsman has seen immense improvements in law enforcement during his career. “The improvements in training given to officers, better equipment and advances in forensic investigations - have all come a long way since 1974”, states Felsman. “This is a rewarding and honorable profession. I’m proud of the cases I have solved and the job I have done.” One of Captain Felsman’s most notable achievements is his graduation from the 237th FBI National Academy in 2009. The public is invited to a celebration of Captain Felsman’s career, with a pot-luck luncheon on Tuesday, July 19th, at 11:30 a.m. in the Pocatello City Council Chambers. City Hall is accessible to persons with disabilities. Program access accommodations may be provided with three (3) days’ advance notice by contacting Dave Hunt at firstname.lastname@example.org; 208.234.6248 or 5815 South 5th Avenue, Pocatello, ID.
