Jail/Sentenced Prisoner Program

The Roseville Police Department operates a Type 1 Jail Facility within the Roseville Police Department, staffed by civilian correctional officers. Roseville's jail has ten cells that can each house up to two persons. There are also four sobering (detox) cells. The jail is certified by the California Board State and Community Corrections to hold adult arrestees for up to 96 hours.  Most arrestees are either released on bail or other release agreements, or are transported to the Placer County Jail in Auburn.

The Sentenced Prisoner Program (SPP) offers an alternative to serving jail time in the Placer County Jail. If you have been sentenced to jail for a non-violent offense, like shoplifting or driving under the influence, and the Placer County Courts approve, you may serve your sentence in the Roseville City Jail. Your time in the Roseville City Jail will be computed on a 2 for 1 basis. For example, if you are sentenced to serve ten days in jail, you may serve ten 12-hour stays in the Roseville City Jail.  This will allow you to keep your job and take care of your family while satisfying your court sentence. Applicants must be in good health and have no history of violent behavior. For more information about the Sentenced Prisoner Program, download our brochure.  If you want to apply to serve your time here, please download, print and complete the three forms listed above, and call the jail supervisor at (916)746-1061 for an appointment.

Please note:  The rates for the Sentenced Prisoner Program are as follows:
One-time non-refundable application fee:  $25
Cost for 12 hour stay is $60

How do I post bond, or bail someone out?

Lists of local licensed bail bond agencies are posted in each jail cell, as well as in the Police Department lobby and the hallway outside the jail, outside the jail visitor's entrance.  You can also look in the local telephone directory (or search the Internet) under "bail bond services".

What is the next step after being released from jail on a bail bond or a notice to appear in court?

The arrestee will be given a bail receipt or a notice to appear with court appearance information at the bottom. Please retain this notice and appear in court at the scheduled date and time. There will be no further notification from the court. If the arrestee does not appear in court as scheduled, the court may issue an arrest warrant for failure to appear.

How do I find out about someone's status if they have been transferred to the Placer County Jail in Auburn?

You can call the Placer County Jail at (530) 745-8500, or view the Placer County Jail's in-custody roster, which includes visitation, charges and bail information, here.

What happens at an arraignment?

The arraignment is an arrestee's first appearance in court after an arrest. Arrestees will hear the charges against them, will be asked if they need a public defender to represent them, and will be asked to enter a guilty or not guilty plea.

How can I contact the Placer County Court?

Call them at 916-408-6000, or visit their website for much more information about court procedures.
