Santa Barbara- February 17th, 2017


At approximately 2:00 p.m. today, February 17, 2017, the 210 inmates located at the Sheriff’s Medium Security Facility were relocated to the adjacent Santa Barbara County Main Jail.  The relocation was done as a precautionary measure due to erosion on the hillside around the perimeter fencing.  The relocation is expected to be temporary.
