The top priority for Detention Deputies working in the Bonneville County Jail is the safety and security of the public, jail staff and inmates. Detention Deputies operate under a sound policy with procedures and professional standards ensuring the best jail practices. Deputies working in our jail are assigned to a variety of complimenting duties to keep operations safe and efficient. They are an integral part of the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office Team that works together in service to our community.
The Bonneville County Jail, located at 900 Environmental Way (Idaho Falls, ID), was built in the late 1990’s and opened in November 1998. The original inmate capacity included 284 beds with an additional 64 beds in the Work Release facility. In 2009, the Bonneville County Jail became home for the newly developed Wood Pilot Project and expanded the Work Release and Work Detail program, increasing the operational capacity to 533 beds. Both programs assist inmates in maintaining productive activities, employment, substance abuse and mental health treatment.
