The mission of the Tribal Department of Corrections is to protect the citizens of the Fort Hall Reservation by providing safe and secure facilities for Native American juvenile and adult offenders committed to the Department’s custody by the courts. The Corrections Departments operates out of the new 80-bed adult and 20-bed juvenile corrections facilities within the Justice Center.

The Adult Corrections Program has space for up to 80 inmates, which allows for the growth of the reservation population and ensures the facility is sized for future needs. Adult Corrections includes an outdoor exercise area that is essentially an enclosed courtyard within the building. The jail space includes single-unit holding cells, space for detoxification and suicide watch inmates, and group holding units. Laundry and kitchen facilities are part of the design, and the jail has the capacity to host visitors in a secure arrangement. Significantly, the jail also includes space for a sweat lodge. The sweat lodge is an important part of integrating a culturally appropriate environment into the facility with the understanding that those incarcerated will be returning to the community.

Security and population segregation are primary concerns of Corrections, and the adult and juvenile portions of the building are self-contained and separated. Goal of the Corrections Department is to be established as a regional detention facility by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, to enable maximum bed space to be utilized within the facility, and to offset costs to build and operate the center.
