COVID-19 Preparedness and Response

Due to the upgrade in precautionary measures being taken nationally to contain and prevent the spread of COVID 19, the Caribou County Jail will be suspending inmate jail programs and visitation until further notice. We will also be taking steps to limit the movement of inmates from the jail to court where possible by using our video arraignment system. These steps are being taken to protect staff and inmates from exposure and to prevent a quarantine situation within our facility. Inmates will have access to phones and letter-writing materials to correspond with loved ones. Thank you all and we apologize for the inconvenience this places on families, but we feel this is in the best interest of our staff and the inmates at this time.

In addition, we would like to respectfully request the public seeking to renew driver's licenses, CCW's and other Sheriff's Office related matters to avoid coming to the office if feeling sick. You may be able to renew your driver's license by mail if you receive a form from the Idaho Transportation Department. If you have a time-sensitive issue, please contact our office for direction. The Driver's License office will operate as usual, we are just taking steps to prevent it from having to close due to illness.
