Custody Bureau
The Custody Bureau is commanded by Captain Ed Ballard

CUSTODY consists of the detention facility (county jail), work release program, prisoner transportation, court security (bailiffs), and the new adult detention facility and sheriff’s office project.  The county jail is the central booking and intake location for all law enforcement agencies operating in Calaveras County.  The Sheriff’s Office is responsible for the care, custody, and control of individuals arrested in or transported to the custody of Calaveras County.  The State of California and federal government impose standards to which the Sheriff must comply. These include minimum square foot living space, medical and dental treatment, a complete up-to-date law library and other tax-supported services.

The NEW Calaveras County Jail and Sheriff’s Office building is currently under construction with completion expected in 2013.
