About the Idaho Prosecuting Attorneys Association


The Idaho Prosecuting Attorneys Association (IPAA) is a nonprofit corporation whose members are the elected County Prosecutors, over 200 Deputy Prosecutors, and a number of associate members to include Municipal Attorneys, Idaho Attorneys General, U.S. Attorneys, Tribal Attorneys and many others. The primary functions of the Association are education through seminars, publications and technical support.

The IPAA sponsors an annual Winter Conference (February) and an annual Summer Conference (August). The IPAA also sponsors a number of other seminars and trainings on an as needed basis to include: Newly Elected Prosecutors Course, New Prosecutors Course, and a number of Trial Advocacy trainings developed by the Idaho Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor (TSRP).

In addition to the written materials that accompany each training, the IPAA has produced the following publications: Idaho Search & Seizure Law Desktop Manual, For The Road – a quarterly traffic crimes newsletter, and we are currently in the process of developing other publications for Idaho prosecutors.

The IPAA is governed by a Board comprised of 7 elected County Prosecutors representing each of the 7 Judicial Districts in Idaho. The IPAA office consists of an Executive Director, an Administrative Assistant, a Legislative Representative and a Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor.
