The East Boise Community Work Center in the city of Boise serves as the prison for Ada County County and other nearby cities. East Boise Community Work Center is a state prison, serving Boise and surrounding areas. Be sure to check that an inmate is at a location and can receive visitors before making travel plans.

Calling an inmate can be difficult and costly. Some prisons charge inmates up to $14 a minute to make long-distance calls. The best way to avoid these fees is to set up a local phone number that has the same area code as the jail but rings at your phone number(s) no matter where you live. Globaltel provides this service and you can reach them at Inmate Calls. To send mail to an inmate you can visit Jail Postcards.

Every jail or prison will have their own unique rules for inmate visitation. Every inmate is informed of these visitation rules and what days and times they are allowed to have visitors. The first step is to get set up with phone service so you can contact your inmate directly and get accurate information about prison visitation. Prisoners are often placed in city jail for pretrial detention. Then they may be transferred back to jail to serve short sentences after trial, or placed in a temporary facility while awaiting transfer to a longer-term prison facility.

East Boise Community Work Center is a state prison, so most Idaho state prison inmates at East Boise Community Work Center will be serving longer sentences for more serious crimes than those held in City Police Jails or County Prisons. Incarceration in a State prison is hard on inmates and their families. Inmates will need regular funding for their commissary accounts to purchase items like postage, phone calls and even items like soap and toothpaste. This can be an extra burden on their family, so setting up a discount prison call account to avoid the fees jails charge for long distance calls is important. This can be set up at thru Globaltel’s local jail call service at Inmate Calls. Getting friends and family to chip in to regularly fund the inmate’s commissary account can also ease the financial burden on those now left to support their household on their own.
