U.S. Attorney Wendy Olson and U.S. Marshal Brian Underwood will hold a pair of open house meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday to speak with area residents.

“We will be available for any question, concern or issue community members would like to talk about,” Olson said in a written release. “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.”

The gatherings will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday and from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday at the Boise City Library, 715 S. Capitol Blvd.

“Confidence in government and the enforcement of law is achieved by providing true justice and being sincere in our working relationships with all people,” Underwood said. “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.”

Underwood and Olson were both appointed to their positions in 2010 by President Barack Obama. They serve the entire state of Idaho.
