To protect the health and safety of our community and staff, many Sutter County offices will be closed to the public starting March 20, 2020 until further notice.

Corrections Section

By law, the Sheriff is mandated to provide a safe and secure facility to house persons committed to his custody by the Courts.

Sutter County's Main Jail facility is located at 1077 Civic Center Boulevard, Yuba City, California. The facility has undergone several upgrades since originally constructed in 1977. A major kitchen renovation, a 148 bed minimum facility, and a 62 bed felony dorm addition were added to the original design. A 52 bed maximum security single-cell unit was completed in 1999. The inmates housed in the single cells are considered high risk inmates.

Our jail facilities are staffed by over 75 full and part-time employees, and the Jail Division Commander oversees the diverse needs of the inmate population. In addition to performing traditional custody functions, the Corrections Section is charged with providing security as bailiff’s assigned to the Sutter County Consolidated Courts in both criminal and family law cases.

Correctional officers also aid the other services provided by the office to the community by becoming members of many of the specialized units of the office such as the dive team, swift water rescue team, and honor guard, just to name a few.
