If you are picking up an inmate on their scheduled release date you must report to the gatehouse between 4:30 and 5:00 AM. Inmates who do not have a ride will be transported by a Sheriff’s Office bus and released at the Main Jail located at 651 I Street, Downtown Sacramento. WE STRONGLY DISCOURAGE CITIZENS FROM OFFERING RIDES TO OTHER PERSONS BEING RELEASED FROM THIS FACILITY.
Items not available at this facility which are essential to an inmate's health and well being may be accepted as determined by the Gatehouse officer. Inmate property releases are processed during the hours of 7:30 AM to 9:00 PM daily. In order for R.C.C.C. to release an inmate’s property to you promptly, the inmate must have submitted a property release form in advance. Otherwise, forms will be provided upon request at the gatehouse. However, processing the form in this manner is subject to extreme delay. The public counter officer will give you a waiting time estimate and may suggest you return in several hours or the next day. You may not receive the inmates clothing unless he is going to state prison. If requesting personal property items, you must take the entire package.
It is the goal of the RCCC Division to prevent escapes and wrongful releases and to increase vocational and educational opportunities for inmates confined in our facility.
The Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center (RCCC) is the primary custody facility for inmates sentenced to County Jail from the Sacramento County Courts. An increasing percentage of the inmates are pre-sentence detainees housed at RCCC to keep the population at the Main Jail below the limit set by Federal decree. In addition, the Correctional Center houses inmates en route to other jurisdictions, federal prisoners under a contract with the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, and reciprocal prisoners from other counties. RCCC is the primary reception point for parole violators who are being held pending revocation hearings and the central transportation point for all defendants sentenced to State Prison. Classified as a Type II facility, RCCC accepts newly arrested persons booked by law enforcement agencies in the south part of Sacramento County. A staff of over 180 Sheriff's Office employees provides supervision to all inmates to ensure they live in a safe, secure and healthy environment. Several support services activities augment the custody staff and provide needed services and programs for inmate housing.
