Ada County Idaho

When the Ada County-Boise City Public Safety Building was inaugurated in 1977, the Ada County Jail was also constructed. The jail's capacity at first included 32 prisoners on work release in addition to a maximum capacity of 160 inmates. Since then, the jail has undergone numerous expansions. The current capacity is 1224 prisoners.

At the Ada County Jail, each offender is assigned a classification based on a particular system, which is essentially a risk evaluation. Security for both jail employees and other detainees is considerably strengthened by classifying all prisoners. A team of police investigates an inmate's past and criminal record in order to classify them. They also take into account the inmate's prior and current custodial behavior. Choosing adequate home also takes into account any physical or mental impairments.

A security risk level, or classification, ranging from minimal to maximal, is given to each prisoner. The greatest number of advantages and privileges are available to minimum security prisoners. Inmates with medium security levels may also enjoy certain advantages, such as access to programs and lodging in dormitories. Maximum risk inmates are prohibited from participating in most activities and privileges. The Ada County Jail employs a variety of inmate supervision techniques. Close Custody Unit is one (CCU). CCU has room for 130 prisoners in total. The more aggressive offenders or those who cannot be placed with the general population are kept in this type of cell layout. Other prisoners are subject to what is known as Direct Supervision. Their homes are organized as "pods." There are dorms within each pod. There are 92 convicts in each male dorm. 56 people live in each female dorm. There are no solitary cells in dorms. Inmates share a communal area and each has their own bed. Typically, one deputy can keep a whole dorm under control.

In Ada County, there are two major ways to get out of jail after an arrest: pay the surety bond associated with each criminal charge, or get a release order from a judge in the 4th Judicial District.
