Bannock County Detention Center

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 populations demanded that a new and larger facility be constructed. Today, a modern facility, which was constructed in 1994, can house 253 inmates. Within this new facility we also have a medical infirmary which provides the necessary medical and dental service to the inmates. Within the Detention Division we have developed a specialized unit which we call the SCILD (Sheriff/Commissioners Inmate Labor Detail) Team, which is made up of low risk inmates who provide community service work rather than sitting their time out within a cell. This program provides more beds for those who need to be confined due to the degree of the crime that they have committed, while at the same time provides a great service within the community in completing clean up and service projects. This unit is manned by 3 deputies who oversee the work of the inmates.

Also included in our Detention Division is the DART (Detention Automatic Response Team) which is composed of highly trained Detention Officers who perform cell extractions and cell searches for hidden contraband and weapons. Our office is the first office within the state to develop this program.
