Idaho State Police Did Not Investigate Private Prison Company

Benito Baeza

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho State Police say they didn’t conduct an investigation following revelations that private prison company Corrections Corporation of America understaffed an Idaho prison and gave the state falsified documents to hide vacancies. State officials had promised that there would be a criminal probe, but Capt. William Gardiner said that “no detective was assigned. There was no investigation.” Neither the police nor the Idaho Department of Correction asked to look at CCA’s timesheet software — software that has auditing capabilities designed to catch fraud — and the police apparently didn’t interview any CCA employees. A public records request sent to Idaho State Police by the Associated Press for investigation records was denied, with the police saying no records exist. The Idaho Department of Correction and the Nashville, Tenn.-based CCA announced Tuesday that CCA would pay the state $1 million for understaffing.
