In light of the Governor's Executive Order (N-25-20) and the recommendation from the California Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC), the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office has suspended all in-person visitation services at both the Placerville and South Lake Tahoe Jails. The only exception will be non-contact attorney visits.
Effective Tuesday, March 17th, 2020, the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office will be expanding video visitation services. While we recognize the importance of in-person visitation, this decision was based upon the recommendation of health officials at both the state and local level.
Video visits are available at a cost of .20 cents per minute. We have expanded our visitation calendar to allow for video visits 7 days per week between the hours of 8am and 11pm. Please note that certain blocks of time will be excluded so that we can continue to meet the medical and dietary needs of those who are incarcerated. Video visitation must be scheduled in advance at https://videovisit.ncic.com/
