Boise Pride Fest to increase private security

The Boise Pride Festival will increase private security presence ahead of its annual three-day event this weekend.

Boise Pride is held on the heels of a North Idaho Pride Alliance event in June where police arrested 31 Patriot Front members who intended to derail the event.

All 31 men are charged with conspiracy to riot, a misdemeanor.

The Idaho Press reports, outside of Boise Pride’s private security, the Boise Police Department (BPD) and Idaho State Police will monitor events throughout the weekend.

BPD has monitored Boise Pride’s events in years past, and say it has traditionally been a safe event.

There is no custom code to display.
