IDOC logo

The Idaho Department of Correction continues to place the safety of its staff and inmates as its highest priority as it works to restore three prisons in the South Boise Correctional Complex to normal operations.

Idaho Maximum Security Institution, Idaho State Correctional Center and Idaho State Correctional Institution remain on secure status. 

At two of the prisons – IMSI and ISCC – some housing units remain on lockdown. 

At IMSI, A-block and J-block, tier 3 are on lockdown. 

At ISCC, D-block, E-block and G-block, tier 6 are on lockdown.  

At ISCI, no housing units are on lockdown.A lockdown means inmates are confined to their cells or bunks. 

Secure status means inmates can move about in their housing unit and use the JPay kiosks and phones.

No timeline has been announced for the easing of restrictions. 

All inmates, except those in restrictive-housing for violating institutional rules, have phone access.  

Inmates on lockdown are afforded an opportunity to make calls on a scheduled basis.
