The Humboldt Co Jail is a detention center located at 826 4th St Eureka, CA which is operated locally by the Humboldt 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. Humboldt County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Eureka 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 Custody Services Division is the largest division in the Sheriff's Office with 119 full-time employees, including 104 Correctional Officers. The Custody Services Bureau’s primary function is the care and custody of sentenced and non-sentenced inmates incarcerated in the HCCF. Located in downtown Eureka adjacent to the County Courthouse, the HCCF spans approximately 155,000 square feet on 6 floors and has a board rated capacity of 417 beds. The facility’s kitchen serves over 40,000 meals per year and the commercial size laundry operates 24 hours per day. The county contracts with the California Forensic Medical Group (CFMG) for 24 hours onsite medical and dental care. The facility contains a short-term care medical housing unit. Mental Health and substance abuse treatment services are provided through the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services.

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office offers an exceptional approach to rehabilitation by providing vocational, educational, and treatment based programs to people currently incarcerated. The goal of providing programs to this population is to reduce the rate of recidivism and to support the currently incarcerated in their efforts to successfully reintegrate back into the community.

Some of the programs offered include College of the Redwoods course, substance abuse education, AA/NA groups, motivational enhancement therapy, jail ministry services, Native American talking circles, resume building classes and much more. In addition to these programs, the currently incarcerated are also offered opportunities to develop case plans to assist them in reaching their goals of successful reintegration.

  • Any state driver's license
  • Any state identification card
  • Federal identification card
  • Military identification card
  • Passport
  • A current DMV printout requesting a Driver's License or State Identification card

After entering your information, the receptionist will tell you which visiting booth to use, which elevator to take and which floor the visiting room is on. Please wait in the lobby area until directed by the receptionist through the metal detector to the elevators. The elevators are controlled by a remote operator.

Failing to do so may delay the next visiting session.
