About ICI

Idaho Correctional Industries (ICI), is headquartered in the great capital of Boise, Idaho and provides daily training for inmates at Idaho State Prisons and Idaho Women’s Prison in Pocatello.

Idaho Correctional Industries prepares our inmates with vocational education, on-the-job training and work experience for industry, vocational and agricultural programs. Inmates will develop marketable job skills, good work ethics and confidence in their accomplishments, which gives a feeling of pride, sometimes for the first time in their lives. In addition, inmates earn a wage to pay their victim restitution and court-ordered fines, and to save money for their release.

ICI programs benefit by providing better public safety in our prisons and communities. They improve prison security by keeping inmates active and engaged while incarcerated, and provide inmates who will return to our communities with opportunities to learn life and job skills, and develop a work ethic that enables them to become productive employees, good neighbors and law-abiding, tax-paying citizens.
