Mission Statement

The purpose of our facility is to lawfully detain individuals charged in the violation of State and all applicable laws. All inmates entrusted to its care are treated fairly and justly without regard to their race, gender, religion, age or social status. The health, safety and well being of these individuals are absolute. This is maintained by providing a nutritional diet and adequate medical care. The Idaho County Jail recognizes its responsibility to the citizens of this community to operate the jail facility in the most cost effective manner possible.
