Minimum Security Jail
As part of this multi-year approach, the Auburn Minimum Security facility has been closed down. The aging, World War 2 era facility met the needs of our county from 1983 to 2014, but is no longer cost effective, or safely viable as a detention facility. Staff for the South Placer Jail includes Correctional Officers, Deputy Sheriff’s, support Services staff, and contracted medical and programs personnel. To off-set opening costs at the South Placer Jail, staff from the Auburn Minimum Security were transferred to the South Placer Facility when the older facility was closed.
