Organizational Structure

Board of Correction

The governor appoints the three-member Idaho Board of Correction. The Idaho senate confirms the appointees. Members serve six-year terms.


The board appoints a director to serve as the head of the agency. The director provides leadership, selects administrators and sets the strategic direction of the agency. A deputy director manages the operations and provides oversight for the chiefs of the divisions within the agency.


The Idaho Department of Correction is comprised of three divisions.  

  • The Prisons Division manages nine prisons in Idaho.
  • The Probation and Parole Division manages supervised offenders in the community and Interstate Compact offenders.
  • The Management Services Division manages business support and contract services.
