A Contact Visit is a visit which physical contact between the inmate and the visitor is permitted. Inmates may have contact visits with their attorney's. The Amador County Jail offers contact visits between inmates and their children 10 years and younger. In order to participate in contact visits an inmate must be sentenced to 30 days or longer and attend parenting classes offered in the facility as well as agree to continue free parenting classes after their release.

A Non Contact Visit is a visit in which physical contact between the inmate and the visitor is NOT permitted. Non contact visits are required for maximum-security inmates, or any inmate who has a hold placed against them pending transfer to another institution.

1.All visits will be non-contact visits, unless the inmate has been approved for contact visits.
2.Inmates may lose their visiting right if there is a violation of detention facility rules.
3.Visiting may be terminated at any time for security reasons.

Visits will be one half hour (1/2) in duration and begin and end as near to the half-hour as practical. Once a visit session has commenced, tardy visitors will be allowed to visit during the in progress one half hour session with no time extension, providing there is a vacant visiting room; or they may choose to wait until the start of the next session. For instance, if a visit session were to began at 1:00 PM and a visitor did not arrive until 1:10 PM and wished to visit at that time, the visit would still be considered to have been fulfilled at 1:30 PM.

Civilian visitors are limited to a maximum of one visit per day regardless of the number of inmates they wish to visit. A maximum of two (2) persons are limited in the visiting booth at one time.

Every visitor is required to present proof of his/her identity and age prior to being allowed to visit. This proof will be in the form of an identification card complete with photograph of the prospective visitor. Acceptable forms of identification are: valid drivers license or state issued identification card, military ID card, passport, school ID card as long as there is a photograph included in conjunction with a valid certificate of live birth. Temporary birth record from the hospital will be accepted for infants for 60 days from date of birth.

Staff will NOT allow civilian visitors who are intoxicated, belligerent or disruptive to visit with inmates.
Visitors must be eighteen (18) years or older. Juveniles who are under the age of eighteen (18) years may visit inmates as long as a parent or guardian accompanies them.
