A safer Idaho with fewer people in its correctional system.

The Old Idaho Penitentiary is one of only four (4) territorial prisons open to the public today. The territorial prison was built in 1870 but officially opened in 1872. As Idaho became a state in the 1890, the state took over and renamed the facility the Idaho State Penitentiary.

IDOC's mission is to facilitate a model correctional system with equitable access to programming and opportunities that paves the way for improved community experience, foster connections and restore victims of crime.

Apart from prisons, the department also supervises offenders living in Idaho communities. IDOC provides the latter education, treatment and reentry programs to help reduce recidivism. To date, IDOC operates 9 prisons, 6 community re-entry centers and 7 probation and parole offices throughout the state.

IDOC VALUES integrity, respect and positive attitude and ENVISIONS a safer Idaho with fewer people in its correctional system.
