2500 East Gibson Road , Woodland CA 95776
(The lights are always on at Yolo County Jail)
(530) 668-JAIL (5245)

Try your best not to get sent here.

So don't get detained for public drunkenness, don't get more than two noise violations on one night, don't ride abandoned bikes. Just don't fuck up because everyone wearing a badge at this place has no mercy for you and wants you to suffer. The Davis Police are more caring human beings by infinite degrees of magnitude than those at 2500 E. Gibson.

When being booked, they will ask you for your nationality and how you identify ethnically. Among the options are Hispanic and Oriental, which many feel are offensive labels. Additionally, non-whites may be asked if you know how to speak English, which is another possibly racist (though statistically justified) practice.
