Pocatello Police Lieutenant Retires after 35 Years of Service


A Pocatello Police Officer is hanging up his badge after more than three decades of service to the community.

Lieutenant Paul Manning has decided to retire after 35 years with the department. He began his career as a Pocatello Police Officer in October 1982 after graduating from the Idaho Peace Officer Standards and Training Academy (POST). A man of many talents, Manning has served as a lead narcotics detective, the homeland security/domestic security coordinator, the department’s public information officer and as a motorcycle and bike patrol officer to name a few. Since January 2016, he has served in the investigations division.

“One of the highlights of my career has been graduating from the Federal Bureau of Investigation Law Enforcement Executive Development Association’s program in 2011,” said Lt. Manning. “While there, I was able to develop my leadership and command skills as well as learn about the future of policing.”

An open house will be held in his honor Thursday, January 25 at 11:30 a.m. in the Pocatello City Council Chambers. The public is invited to attend.  

“It has been an honor to serve the people of Pocatello with my fellow officers,” said Manning. “The memories I’ve made here will be something I will cherish forever.”

As for the future, Manning says he plans to teach firearms through the Idaho State University Law Enforcement program. He is also looking forward to continuing teaching firearms at the Idaho POST Academy where he has taught for the past 16 years.

City Hall is accessible to persons with disabilities. Program access accommodations may be provided by contacting Dave Hunt at; 208.234.6248 or 5815 South 5th Avenue, Pocatello, ID.
