With the recent recommendation of no more than 10 people gathering in the same space, the Bannock County Sheriff’s Office has met with local and State officials to determine what steps to take to protect our citizens of Bannock County, our employees of the Sheriff’s Office, and well as any offenders we deal with on a daily basis. We do believe the COVID-19 virus should be taken seriously, and all recommendations from the State and National level should be applied, we also understand the importance of serving the community we serve.

Due to the upgrade in precautionary measures being taken nationally to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Bannock County Jail has suspended any outside visitors from entering the Detention Center. The importance of keeping our employees healthy, working in a safe environment, and keeping our offender population as healthy as possible is our utmost concern during these trying times. Our offenders still have the ability to contact family and friends through phones calls, video visitation, and mail.

The Sheriff’s Office will continue to remain open to assist our community in our responsibilities and our duties. However we have implemented some restrictions in our office we want everyone to be aware of;

If you come to the Sheriff’s Office for a driver’s license or a Concealed Weapons permit, we ask you stand 5-6 feet part. In addition we would like to respectfully request the public in seeking to renew driver’s Licenses, Conceal Weapons permits, and other Sheriff’s Office related matters to avoid coming to the office if they are feeling sick.

We are only going to allow 1 person in the Driver’s License Office at one time. We will have staff answering the phones to answer questions, and a staff member will be at the door to look through your paperwork to ensure an efficient transaction. A news release from ITD was announced that anyone that needs to renew a license between the months of March 1-May 31st of 2020, will have until June 30th to renew.
To contact ITD by phone the number is 208-334-8735 or you can login in to itd.idaho.gov/itddmv. We ask if there are further questions to call our local Driver’s License number at 208-236-7258.

The Bannock County Courthouse is open again to the general public at this time. Our security and courthouse staff continue to monitor the events happening around the United States. With the rapidly changing circumstances around the country, this may change at any time. It is important to call before coming to the courthouse to ensure we allow the public to enter the courthouse.

A huge thanks today to Portneuf Air Rescue for their assistance in helping us locate two missing persons who had been stranded in their vehicle in the Trail Creek area overnight. What would have taken responding units from S&R and the Sheriff's Office all day to search was done in a matter of 30 minutes by Portneuf Air Rescue and crew. The missing persons were located by the crew who then landed and confirmed the parties needed assistance but were okay. Thanks Portneuf Air Rescue!!!!
