The Napa County Department of Corrections is dedicated to providing professional correctional services to the citizens of Napa County.
Corrections has jurisdiction over the Napa County Jail facility. The facility houses both sentenced and pre-sentenced inmates. The Department is responsible for the coordination of all programs and services related to the institutional punishment, care, treatment and rehabilitation of inmates, including intake screening, diagnosis, classification and programs that deal with sentencing alternatives.
The Napa County Department of Corrections was separated from the Sheriff's Department by the Board of Supervisors in 1975. We were the first in the state of California to become a civilian-run facility, and are currently one of two in the state not operated by the Sheriff’s Department.
The Department must meet all California guidelines outlined in Title 24, as well as Title 15. This facility has a maximum capacity of 264 inmates. We house female inmates and male inmates. Housing areas range from Temporary holding, Observation Cells, Work Furlough, General Population, Administration Segregation, Protective Custody, Maximum Security, a Medical Unit and Solitary Confinement. An outside medical provider provides for the medical, mental health and dental needs of the inmates. There is a staff member from the medical unit on duty 24 hours a day.
