Probation & Parole Overview
The mission of the Bureau of Probation and Parole is to provide for public safety through the supervision of adult felons under either probation or parole jurisdiction. The Bureau of Probation and Parole is governed under Idaho Statute Title 20 State Prison and County Jails, Chapter 20 State Board of Correction, Section 20-219 Probation and Parole Supervision. We currently supervise more than 14,000 felony offenders in the community with highly trained and professionally dedicated staff in seven districts statewide.
The Bureau of Probation and Parole seeks to involve all facets of the community, which includes, but is not limited to, victims and their families, programs for offenders, their families, involvement in community activities and partnerships with other criminal justice agencies. We also provide offenders the opportunity to make positive changes while in the community by providing individual support, programs and assistance. Accountability and protection are provided by individual case management plans that are created, monitored and supervised through an assigned officer.
