Jail overcrowding is one of the biggest challenges facing county governments in California. Like most California jails, Placer County jails are overcrowded.
The last addition to the main jail was in 1992, bringing the jail to its current capacity of 352. Another 160 inmates can be held at a minimum security facility. The jails serve the cities and towns of Auburn, Colfax, Lincoln, Rocklin, Roseville, Loomis, Dollar Point, Dutch Flat, Foresthill, Granite Bay, Kings Beach, Meadow Vista, Newcastle, North Auburn, Olympic Valley, Penryn, Sheridan, Sunnyside-Tahoe City and Tahoe Vista.

Like all jails, that are overcrowded, if you are guaranteed to be granted bond (which is sometimes the case on minor traffic offenses), you may never see the inside of a Placer County jail cell. There are still some important steps you need to follow when bonding out of Placer County jail:
- Call Golden State Bail Bonds at (800)XXX-XXXX. We are available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
