Placer County Corrections

The Placer County Sheriff's Office is located in Auburn,California, and operates two jail facilities—the Auburn Jail and the South Placer Jail.

Both of these Placer County Corrections facilities house adult males and females who have been arrested by county or municipal law enforcement, have not made bail, and are awaiting trial. The facility also houses inmates who have been sentenced to the county jail, as well as inmates being held for transport to the California Department of Corrections.

Auburn Jail

The present Auburn jail facility consists of three medium security dorms, two with a capacity of 92 inmates each, and one with a capacity of 44 inmates; and one maximum-security module with a capacity of 32 inmates.

The dormitory housing units have direct supervision, with a custody officer stationed inside each of the dorms, and indirect supervision from a housing booth. Most of the cells in the Auburn Jail have been doubled-bunked.

The minimum-security barracks used to be in buildings that were originally World War II Army warehouses, built in 1941. The barracks consisted of three housing units, two male and one female, with a combined capacity of 160 inmates, making the total capacity of the Auburn Main Jail 646. However, the Minimum Security Barracks located at the Auburn Jail were closed in 2014, and the inmates moved to the South Placer Jail facility.

VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday)

Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) is a free and anonymous telephone service that provides victims of crime both information and notification. VINE monitors the custody status of offenders in the Placer County Jail and receives updated information every 15 minutes.

The Toll Free Number for California VINE is 1.877.411.5588. Anyone can call the California State VINE line to determine an inmate's custody status. To search for offender information, callers will need one of the following items:

  • Offender name or alias
  • Secondary search option (if there is more than one offender with the same name), such as:
    • Arrest date
    • Date of birth
    • Middle initial
    • Offender identification number

VINE will let callers know about the offender's current custody status, the location of the inmate, and their offender number. 

Property Release

Within the first 72 hours of being booked (except during lock down times), an inmate at the Auburn Jail or South Placer Jail can do one of three types of property releases:

  • Release of motor vehicle keys only
  • Release of all property with the exception of clothing
  • Release of money

After the initial 72 hours, the only type of property release that will be done is a complete property release, with the exception of clothing and money. This may only be done one time. The only time clothing will be released is when the inmate has been sentenced to state prison. Clothing will not be released until proof of sentencing is confirmed.

Property releases are done only on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays between 7:30 and 10:30 a.m.
