Sheriff’s Labor Detail (SLD)

SILD VestThe Sheriff's Labor Detail (SLD) is a work crew made up of low-risk, nonviolent offenders. This crew performs labor-intensive work on various public projects. While on the work crews, SLD individuals are supervised by Ada County SLD Officer or other appropriate county employees. SLD individuals do not spend the night in jail. After the workday, they return to their homes.
