Inmate Programs

Social Services

The following social services are available to inmates: AA, Amador County Drug and Alcohol, Bible Studies, Health classes, Parenting classes, and High School Diploma programs. Inmates who wish to see their own minister may do so by submitting a written request form to the Jail Captain.

Sentence Modifications

All sentenced inmates may apply to the courts for modification of their sentence.

Sheriff's Parole

Any inmate wishing to apply for Sheriff's parole must have completed at least one quarter of their total sentence (not counting good time and work time), and be able to verify extreme extenuating circumstances. Necessary requirements and applications forms are available upon request from the jail staff.


To be eligible to vote an inmate must be a US citizen, a resident of California, and at least 18years of age on the date of the next election. Further, an inmate must not be involuntarily confined because of having pled guilty by reason of insanity, judicially determined to be incompetent to stand trial, or convicted as a mentally disordered sex offender. An inmate cannot be currently imprisoned or on parole for conviction of a felony.

An inmate must register to vote. Voter registration cards should reflect the inmates' current address. Current address is defined as the address which the inmate regards as permanent, and when away from that address, such as in jail, the address to which the inmate intends to return. If the inmate has no permanent address, he cannot vote. Inmates shall request absentee ballots prior to the time of the election if they wish to vote while incarcerated at the time of election. Voter registration cards and absentee ballots shall be mailed in accordance with current inmate correspondence procedures.
