IMSI opened in November 1989 to confine Idaho's most disruptive residents. It has a capacity of 549 residents and located within a double perimeter fence reinforced with razor wire and an electronic detection system. The population is primarily comprised of close custody and administrative segregation residents. IMSI also operates the state Secure Mental Health Facility, houses residents under the sentence of death, and residents who are civil commitments.
