Bannock County Detention Center
Our Detention Division consists of 56 deputies. In 1955, a new jail was built to house 72 inmates. It provided almost forty (40) years of service before inmate population growth demanded that a new, larger facility be constructed. Today, a modern facility constructed in 1994, can house 253 inmates. This new facility also houses a medical infirmary which provides necessary medical and dental services to the inmates.
In the Detention Division we have developed a specialized unit called SCILD (Sheriff/Commissioners Inmate Labor Detail) Team, made up of low-risk inmates who provide community service work rather than spending time in a cell. This program provides more beds for those who need confinement due to the nature of the crime committed and at the same time provides a great service in the community completing clean up and service projects. This unit is manned by 3 deputies who oversee the work of the inmates.
Included in our Detention Division is DART (Detention Automatic Response Team), composed of highly trained Detention Officers who perform cell extractions and cell searches for hidden contraband and weapons. Our office was the first office in the state to develop this type of program.
