    When the Butte County Jail was built in 1965, it had the capacity to house only 154 inmates. In 1994, an addition was built that increased the housing capacity to 570.  The original office space was rebuilt in 1999 to better handle the needs of the jail staff. The jail is run by 135 Correctional Officers and civilian employees. There is a medical department that services the jail as well as a kitchen facility.

    If someone is arrested in Butte County, either by the Butte Sheriff's Department or other law enforcement agency in the county, they will be transported to the Butte County Jail in Oroville for the booking process.

    Here, they will be fingerprinted, photographed ("mug shots"), and have a background check and warrant search done. The booking process can take between 2-6 hours, depending on how busy jail staff members are at the time of booking.  After booking is complete, bail will be set and the inmate will be permitted to make a phone call.


    Inmates may have reading materials sent to them, with some restrictions. Any books, magazines or newspapers must be sent directly from the publisher. No hardback books are allowed, only soft cover books. Packages are not allowed, including those of stamps and envelopes.

    Money for an inmate's KEEFE account can be deposited through the Jail Lobby Kiosk. The Kiosk accepts debit and credit cards and cash. There is a fee charged for placing money into an account. After May 16, 2011, money orders will no longer be accepted through the mail. Funds can also be deposited via the Web or by phone. Inmates are limited to a maximum of $300 deposited in a 24-hour period.

    If an inmate is taking prescription medication, it can be brought to the Jail Office. The Medical Unit will verify that the inmate has a prescription for that medication. It will be turned over to the Jail Physician and dispensed at the discretion of the Medical Unit

    Inmates may receive mail at the jail. Envelopes should be addressed as:

    (Inmate Name)
    35 County Center Dr.
    Oroville, CA 95965.

    There are no restrictions on how many letters an inmate may receive. Inmates may not be mailed food, cards, Polaroid’s, stationery, stamps, cash, or personal checks. All incoming mail will be opened and searched.

    Telephones will be available for inmates to make collect calls between 10:00 am and 10:00 pm. Phone calls and messages for inmates are not accepted.

    Inmates are allowed to spend $80 each week in the Commissary.  They will be allowed to buy stamps, paper, hygiene items and snacks.
