Idaho shakes up leadership at prisons

Three Idaho prisons are undergoing leadership changes.

The Pocatello Women’s Correctional Center, along with Boise’s South Idaho Correctional Institution and the Idaho Maximum Security Institution, all have new wardens.

Jim Woolf, who has been the deputy chief of the Idaho Department of Correction’s Prisons Division, will take over the reins at the women’s facility in Pocatello.

Woolf replaces Brian Underwood, the new U.S. Marshal for Idaho.

Woolf will continue as deputy chief and will also oversee operations at St. Anthony Work Camp in St. Anthony and South Boise Women’s Correctional Center south of Boise.

Meanwhile, South Idaho Correctional Institution Deputy Warden Terressa Baldridge has been elevated to that facility’s warden.

There, she’ll replace Randy Blades, who is shifting to the Idaho Maximum Security Institution as warden.
