BOISE, Idaho, June 12, 2018 – Due to a shortage of beds in Idaho’s prisons and jails, the Idaho Department of Correction has moved 56 more male inmates to the Karnes County Correctional Center in Karnes City, Texas. They arrived at 2:24 p.m. Tuesday. They join 150 Idaho inmates who arrived on Feb. 13, 2018, and 100 inmates who arrived on March 14, 2018.

IDOC is negotiating with KCCC’s operator, the GEO Group, Inc., for the use of additional beds until a long-term agreement for the incarceration of up to 1,000 inmates at an out-of-state facility is finalized.
