General visitation appointments are for non-contact visits, meaning there will be no physical contact allowed. To receive a contact visit, an inmate must have special permission. This will not apply for those in maximum security custody or when there is a facility transfer pending.

Contact visits are allowed between inmates and their attorneys, and may be permitted for children aged 10 and younger. (This is for inmates serving a 30-day+ sentence only.) Prior to a parent-child contact visit, the inmate must attend parenting classes at Amador County Detention Center and also agree to pursue follow-up classes post-release.

Visiting rules at the Amador County Correctional Facility are as follows:

  • Individuals currently on probation, parole or special supervision may not visit.

  • Individuals incarcerated at the jail within the past 60 days cannot visit.

  • Visitors who arrive late for their appointment will not receive an extension to visitation time.

  • Visitors may only visit one inmate per day.

  • Current , government-issued photo identification is required for each visitor. Students can present school IDs (with birth certificate), and for infants 60 days and younger, a temporary hospital birth record is acceptable.

  • Minors under age 18 can visit in the company of a parent or legal guardian. Proof of guardianship must be provided and will be verified prior to the visit.

  • Visitors who are intoxicated or disruptive will lose visitation privileges.

Any violation of rules may terminate visitation rights. Visitation may be suspended at any time for security concerns.
