The Latah County Jail under goes numerous inspections each year. We are inspected by the Fire Marshall, Health Department, United States Marshal's Service and the Idaho Sheriff's Association.

The Fire Marshall inspects the sprinkling systems, makes sure we meet the state fire codes, checks fire extinguishers and exit signs. The Health Department inspects the kitchen and sanitation to make sure we meet the guide lines. All three cooks as well as the Jail Sergeant are and must remain current as certified food handlers.

The Idaho Sheriff's Association makes sure that the jail is in compliance with the State of Idaho Minimum Jail Standards. This includes the physical facility, medical standards, food service and all aspects of inmate keeping.

The U.S. Marshal's Service/Bureau of Prisons inspects our facility in line with the State minimum jail standards and insures we comply with all Federal standards.
