The Mini-Cassia Criminal Justice Center is mandated by State Law to take charge of and keep in the county jail, and to take before the nearest Magistrate, those adult individuals who are charged with or convicted of a public offense. Following American Correctional Association and the Idaho Jail Standards it will provide in a most cost effective manner, the highest degree of security for the citizens and the safety for both the inmates and staff of the correctional system.
The philosophy of the facility is predicated upon two basic underlying assumptions:
To maintain inmates in the least restrictive manner given their classification and the instructions of the court, providing a humane, constitutional environment for the secure custody, well being and safekeeping of incarcerated individuals
Inmates shall leave the facility no worse and hopefully better through the education programs offered enveloping adult continuing education, substance abuse programs and rehabilitative community based programs.
The professionally trained staff and management of the Mini-Cassia Criminal Justice Center are committed to the preservation of the basic human rights and dignity of the inmate population as prescribed by the Constitution of the United States.
