Yuba County Jail Visitation

The Yuba County Sheriff's Department has established a visiting policy to allow the inmates who are incarcerated in our facility the opportunity to maintain social relationships with family and friends.
All visits are conducted at the basement level of the facility. Access to the visitor's lobby includes a stairwell and an elevator. Access and visiting space for the handicapped is available.
Visiting is conducted daily, seven days a week. The day and time of visits is determined by the cell assignment of the inmate. It is imperative that visitors be present prior to the visitation start time for the inmate they wish to visit. For details on 2016 policy update on visitation scheduling, click here!  All inmates are allowed two visits per week, one of which will be scheduled on a Saturday or Sunday. Visiting schedules are posted in the inmate housing and in the Central Control and Visiting lobbies. Every person wishing to visit is required to register with the visiting clerk prior to the beginning of the visiting period. Due to the limited number of spaces available for visiting, any visitor arriving after the commencement of the visiting period cannot be guaranteed their full visit, although every effort will be made to accommodate them.
