Jail & Video Visitation

Effective April 2, 2020 the walk-in visiting centers at the Auburn Jail and South Placer Jail will be temporarily closed. The closure of these visiting centers is in response to shelter in place orders issued by both the Governor and Placer County Health Department.  The Board of State and Community Corrections (B.S.C.C.), which governs all local California jail facilities, has very recently granted authorization to suspend all in-person visiting while the shelter in place is in effect.  This includes the walk-in video visiting lobby at the South Placer Jail.    Considering this, we are pleased to announce that both Correctional facilities in Placer County will be providing inmates the ability to have one FREE 30-minute remote video visit per week and one FREE 15-minute phone call per week with family or friends.  All other policies remain in effect.  The standard cost for all other video visits and phones for the week remain at standard rates.  If you are interested using the remote video visitation option, please refer to our website and the following links.




For the safety of the public and our inmate population, effective immediately and until further notice, the Placer County Sheriff’s Adult Correctional Facilities in Auburn and Roseville are suspending all contact visitation with inmates. The Auburn Jail visiting center will remain open as it is non-contact. Attorneys who wish to have a contact visit with a client must go through a screening process. Attorneys who are not eligible for contact visits will be offered a non-contact visiting room. Video visitation is still permitted at this time. Thank you for your patience.
