The protest, which will begin at the Adelaide Detention Center at 11 am, will end with the departure of the officers to the House of Parliament in North Terrace, according to 9 Adelaide News.
As the officers will take the day off tomorrow, all state jails will be under confinement.
The dispute between the government of South Australia and the Public Services Association (PSA) led a court last Saturday to ensure that minimum staff levels would be maintained during the protest.
"Well, ultimately, you do not want to have a situation where you can find yourself in the worst possible circumstances, riots and escapades or something," said State Treasurer Rob Lucas.
The PSA, however, accused the government of using the court "to pursue its political agenda" according to ABC.
"The orders have been issued (…) we recognize those orders," said PSA spokesman Austin White.
& # 39; We are not going to challenge the orders. We are going to proceed with the blockade. The arrangements that will be applied during that confinement have been discussed at length, "he added.

Officials will also protest the planned privatization of the Adelaide Remand Center (pictured), a maximum security prison used to hold prisoners in pretrial detention awaiting trial.
Hundreds of PSA members are expected to participate in the protest.
Despite this, the government remains firm in its decision to maintain the public service cuts described in its state budget.
Prison guards have also been warned that they will not be paid if they do not go to work tomorrow.
However, union bosses have said that workers simply "do not care" and will go on strike tomorrow independently.
All prisons, such as Yatala, Port Lincoln, Port Augusta and Mobilong, will remain in custody during the planned protest on Monday, with the exception of Mount Gambier prison.
