Home Detention and Alternative Sentencing Program - Payment Processing

Important Payment Notice: Effective July 1, 2021 inmates participating in either the Home Detention or Sheriff’s Work Project program should not use the link on this page to make Application Fee or Program Fee payments. After July 1, 2021 will we only be able to accept Application Fee and Program Fee payments from participants on the Alternative Sentencing Program. Home Detention inmates may still use this link to pay fees associated with equipment damage charges. Please call (916) 874-1400 for more information.

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office accepts online Credit Card payments for outstanding debts owed for the Home Detention and Alternative Sentencing programs.

Before you begin, you will need your six-digit account number located on your promissory contract or by contacting our office. A convenience fee will be charged for each transaction. If you have both a Home Detention account and an Alternative Sentencing Program account, you need to complete two separate transactions, one for each program, since each transaction can only reference one account number.


When you click on this link, you will leave our website and be redirected to another site that is not under the control of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office, in order to complete the payment process. Payment Express is a third-party vendor that provides all credit card payment processing services for the County of Sacramento. To verify their Security and Privacy Measures, please HERE.
