The Amador County CA Jail is a detention center located at 700 Court St Jackson, CA which is operated locally by the Amador County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Amador County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Jackson Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for California here.

The Corrections Division strives to provide the opportunity for those inmates who choose to serve the community in meaningful ways and make personal improvements. All of these goals must be accomplished while maintaining the standards set for its operation in Title 15 of the California Code of Regulations. The Amador County Correctional facility has a State rated capacity for 76 inmates—65 Males and 11 Females.

PHONE CALLS - All arrested persons are entitled to three free local or three collect long-distance calls, ​within three hours of being arrested. After the booking process is completed, the arrested ​person may use the telephone to make calls to arrange for bail, contact an attorney, or ​notify family or other persons. ​Telephone calls to attorneys, physicians, clergyman, sexual assault counselors or ​psychotherapists cannot be eavesdropped upon or monitored. All other telephone calls ​may be monitored, eavesdropped upon and recorded to provide for the reasonable ​security of the jail.

​Housed inmates may use the telephone in their cell block day room to make collect or ​credit card calls or they may request to use a telephone that is not monitored for calls to ​attorneys, physicians, clergyman, sexual assault counselors or psychotherapists. Inmates ​may use the telephone between 6:00 A.M. and 11:00 P.M. All telephones may be turned ​off for the safety and security of the jail at any given time.
