Honor Farm
Upon arrival at the Honor Farm, inmates are oriented to the facility and specifically informed that it is the inmate’s responsibility to check the visiting list, which is posted every visitation period. The officers will not locate an inmate for visiting. If the inmate has chosen to attend class, church, sports programs, movies, etc., he or she has made that choice voluntarily. If the inmate is at his or her work assignment, they will not be allowed to visit. If the inmate fails to show up for any of these reasons, you may attempt to schedule another visit the following visiting day.

It is advisable that if you correspond or have telephone communication with the person you wish to visit, you inquire as to his or her work schedule although they may be subject to periodic change.
Honor Farm inmates may not receive money during visiting. Possession of any amount of money will be grounds for disciplinary action against the inmate. A visitor wishing to place funds on an inmate’s account may do so utilizing the Kiosk located in the visiting lobby during regular visiting hours. A kiosk is located in the 24-hour lobby for after-hour deposits.

Phone Recording
If you plan to visit with an inmate please read this official notification:

Pursuant to authority granted under California Penal Code Section 636, the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office has installed an automatic device to monitor and record conversations on the inmate visiting telephones.
Your use of the visiting room constitutes your knowledge and consent to this monitoring and recording. A properly assigned attorney/religious advisor/physician visit is not monitored or recorded.
