The Ada County Sheriff’s Office serves the public with several essential safety programs in addition to traditional law enforcement.
The programs include civil court document process service; issuance of concealed weapons permits and drivers licenses; and code enforcement.
In addition to operating the Ada County Jail, the ACSO also runs the Pretrial Services and Misdemeanor Probation programs.
Pretrial Services provides management of people who are charged with crimes before their cases are resolved in 4th District Court.
Misdemeanor Probation provides management of people whose misdemeanor cases are resolved in the 4th District Court where judges decide that they can be released into the community instead of going to jail.
