Bannock County Board of Community Guardians

P.O. Box 901
Pocatello, Idaho 83204-0901

   Every county in the State of Idaho has the option for a Board of Community Guardians.  This Board consists of a select group of county residents that volunteer their time to be guardians.  Members are under Oath from the County Commissioners, which is the required proof of the guardian’s appointment.  Members serve a minimum of 3 years and a maximum of 12 years.  The Board meets once each month to review cases and conduct Board business. 

     Members of the Board of Community Guardians provide guardianship and/or conservatorship for county residents that need an umbrella of protection.  A person for whom a guardian has been appointed is called a ward.  Referrals for guardianship are submitted to the Board by different agencies such as Adult Protection, Heath & Welfare, Private Physicians, Care Centers, etc.  The Board reviews all referrals for acceptance or denial of each ward.  If the Board approves the referral, the ward must have an appointment through the Court for guardianship.  If the Board cannot accept the referral, it will provide resource suggestions and ideas to the care providers.

The Board is always looking for volunteers and assistant volunteers.  Every Board member is subject to a court history review.

The current chair of the Bannock County Board of Community Guardians is Lance Peck
