Cost-of-supervision fees

Idaho Code 20-225 authorizes payment for cost of supervision (COS). Any person under Idaho Department of Correction probation or parole supervision shall be required to contribute not more than seventy-five dollars ($75.00) per month as determined by the Board of Correction. IDOC currently assesses a monthly fee of sixty dollars ($60.00) per month. Cost-of-supervision fees offset some of the direct and indirect costs incurred by the Idaho Department of Correction to supervise probationers and parolees. This includes tests to determine drug and alcohol use, books and written materials to support rehabilitation efforts and monitoring physical location through the use of technology. 


How to pay COS fees, presentence investigation fees and Interstate Compact application fees

The Idaho Department of Correction has worked with Access Corrections to make it possible for probationers and parolees with new options for making their payments. 

You can make a payment by:

• Using a kiosk in one of the seven probation and parole district offices (credit/debit card)

• Calling 1-866-345-1884 (credit/debit card)

• Logging on to (credit/debit card)

• Going in person to a walk-in site (cash, credit or debit)

There is a fee for using these services.The rate depends on how much money you’re paying. You’ll find the fee schedule on Access Corrections' website.  

There is also a $300 limit for debit/credit card payments if you owe $300 or more. If you want to make a payment above $300, or if you want to pay ahead on your COS, mail a cashier’s check or money order to the Secure Payments-Idaho DOC P & P address you see below.

Important: When making a payment, or looking up your account with Access Corrections, you must add zeroes in front of the IDOC number so that it displays as seven digits.  For example, if your IDOC # is 12345, you must enter 0012345.  If your IDOC # is 123456, you must enter 0123456.
