The Idaho Department of Correction currently manages and administers over 400 policies and procedures. The department has in its inventory two types of procedure: directives and standard operating procedures. Directives are being converted to standard operating procedure and are being made obsolete upon conversion to standard operating procedure.
Through providing on this website access to policies, standard operating procedures, and related manuals, forms, administrative rules, and statutes, the department is making every attempt to be a transparent agency and be fully compliant with Idaho public records law. However, Idaho public records law does allow the department to limit access or exempt from disclosure any policy-related document that, if released, may be a detriment to the safety and/or security of our correctional facilities, staff, or offenders. Where we have determined that such risks exist, those policy-related documents are easily identifiable (look for the word "redacted" in the table of contents, next to the title of the document).
