The Boise City Jail despite the name is not a jail. The Boise City Jail is just a holding pen for people who have been arrested in the Boise limits.

Unfortunately, with the holding pen in the Boise City Jail is quite small. So, offenders will only be in this small holding pen for hours, if that. Most of the offenders that have been arrested in the Boise limits will be brought directly to the Ada County Detention Center and skip going down to the Boise City Jail all together.

Keep in mind that the Boise Police Department will also manage this smallholding pen as well.
