Due to a shortage of beds in Idaho’s prisons and jails, the Idaho Department of Correction will soon move 100 more male inmates to the Karnes County Correctional Center in Karnes City, Texas.  

The inmates will join 150 Idaho inmates who arrived at the facility on Feb. 13, 2018.  

All 250 inmates will be held at the facility temporarily while the department seeks a long-term agreement with a prison-bed provider.

To assure the secure transport of the inmates from Idaho to Texas, the date and time of their scheduled movement will not be announced publicly. 

Family members who have questions about any inmate incarcerated by the Idaho Department of Correction can contact the department’s Office of Constituent Services at 208-658-2134 or online.
