Juvenile Facilities Visiting Information by Location

Is San Diego County Probation suspending visitations of youth in Juvenile Facilities due to COVID-19?

To protect the health and safety of youth who are currently housed within the County’s juvenile halls and Urban Camp, the San Diego County Probation Department has suspended in-person visitations at facilities until further notice. These visits include after-court, special and weekend visits by family members and/or community-based organizations. Required legal visits will be held as scheduled and all court ordered visits will be honored. Youth in facilities will have extended phone privileges to maintain contact with family and loved ones.  The San Diego County Probation Department has been a pioneer in the use of technology such as Skype and Facetime to enable video visitation.  We have already increased our capacity for video visitation since the start of this event and we anticipate that we will be able to scale it up further in the coming days. Probation’s priority is to protect the health and wellness of staff and youth. This is solely a proactive measure developed in conjunction with our medical provider and the Board of State and Community Corrections. At this time the San Diego County Probation Department has not identified any infected staff or youth in its facilities.


Holiday visiting hours remain the same except for Christmas Day, which follows the Sunday schedule.
