The Canyon County Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 1115 Albany St Caldwell, ID which is operated locally by the Canyon County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Canyon County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Caldwell Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

Canyon County - Current Arrests

Work Release Center provides housing for alternatively sentenced inmates. Judges may grant Work Release privileges to certain inmates. These inmates are gainfully employed and are productive members of society. In order to serve a sentence in the Work Release Center, inmates must pay a daily fee. When the Inmates have finished their work day, they return to the Work Release Center to sleep. On Sundays the Inmates are given four hours to conduct personal business which is not considered ‘work related’ (i.e. washing clothing, visitation, etc..). By implementing the alternative sentencing options, the Judges have helped to alleviate the crowding in the Detention Center and generate revenue for the County. Inmates who were not previously employed, but have been granted Work Release Privileges, are given the opportunity to work as an Inmate Worker in the Detention Center or perform volunteer services at the County Landfill.

Commissary for inmates is provided by CBM Managed Services in conjunction with Telmate. All sales are final and there is no refund for commissary purchases.

Inmates who are released prior to receiving their orders may pick up orders within five days of the delivery date. Any commissary orders that are not picked up will be donated to charity.

Commissary day is SATURDAY. Orders are scanned Thursday morning. Money MUST be on account prior to Wednesday at 5:00 p.m.

Currently inmates are allowed to spend $45.00 weekly. They may purchase snacks, candy, personal hygiene items*, writing materials, cards and games. If an inmate is indigent (less than $2.50 on their account) they may request a free indigent writing pack which contains two stamped envelopes, a flex pen and four sheets of paper.


You may also use the Telmate Kiosk located in the Visitation Lobby. This will accept Debit/ Credit cards and cash. It will not accept coins.

*Canyon County Detention does provide basic hygiene items free of charge for all inmates but they may choose to purchase their own.
