Records Department Hours

The records department hours are Monday – Thursday, 8am to 4pm. We are closed Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Jail Visitation

Official visitation times are on Thursdays, from 4pm to 6pm, and Saturdays from 1pm to 3pm. A 15 minute visitation is permitted once per week. If you are traveling long distances, you may be allowed altered or extended visitation times, or special circumstances, only if pre-approved by the Sheriff or Jail Staff and scheduled in advance.

Civil Fingerprints

Due to changes in CBI’s policies on civil fingerprints, the Baca County Sheriff’s Office will no longer be able to perform that service. To be fingerprinted for teaching, childcare, nursing, or other civil purposes, make an appointment at the website below. Locations are available in Springfield and Lamar.
