The Glendale City Police Station has an on-site jail which can hold up to 100 inmates at a time.  If someone you know has been arrested in Glendale, California or the surrounding areas, they can be jailed here until they are released on bail;  released on their own recognizance (also known as an “O.R.” release); cited out or arraigned. Some don’t realize that the Glendale jail is the third busiest city jail in Southern California!

If bail isn’t posted or the arrestee is ineligible for bail, male defendants may be transported to the Los Angeles County, Twin Towers Jail or Men’s Central Jail.

If the defendant is a woman, she will be transferred to the Century Regional Detention Facility for women, otherwise known as the Lynwood jail. However, if they are transferred, having them released could take as long as 24 hours or more. It is always recommended to post bail while they are still at the Glendale jail.

Glendale Jail Inmate Information

The Glendale Police Department Jail is designed in Podular style. It’s a new type of incarceration facility that promotes direct supervision of inmates, rather than remote or intermittent surveillance. Podular Jails employ housing units grouped into manageable units or pods – much like a college dormitory – that use a common, multipurpose area. Each unit is supervised by one officer, who is in direct control of approximately 40 to 50 inmates.

Glendale Jail Visiting Information

All visitations are conducted via video visitation daily between the hours of 1 pm to 4 pm for 15 minutes. No more than one visit per day will be allowed and visitors must bring a valid picture identification, such as:

  • California driver’s license or identification card
  • U.S. Passport
  • Alien registration card
  • U.S. military card
What Is Bail?

Bail is an amount of money, (assigned by a Judge who uses a county bail schedule) which must be paid in order for a defendant to be released from jail.

The bail amount is like a promise made by the defendant and signer, that he or she will keep his/her court date after being released. The  bail amount, especially one issued in California, can be high – often too much for the average person to pay at once. That’s why contacting a bail bondsman is the best way to get someone you care for out of jail fast; without having to break the bank of your families budget.

A bondsman has a special license that allows them to post the bond at the jail. When you sign a contract with a bail bond company you become the bondsman’s partner in securing a defendant’s release. Therefore, you only have to pay 10 percent of the entire fee. Should the bail amount be set at $25,000, you would pay $2,500 for their release.

Posting bail also enables the arrestee to resume his daily life and work routine. It gives them the time they need to procure an attorney and better prepare for their day in court.

What Are Your Responsibilities?

By signing the bail “indemnity agreement” and paying for the bond, it also means you assume legal responsibility for the defendant and become their “indemnitor.” It is very important to make sure they attend all court dates related to the bond (or you may be responsible for paying the entire face amount of the bail should they skip their court date). It is not a contract to be taken lightly.

However, we do realize things happen, such as cars breaking down, etc.  In cases like this, we can easily handle it with just a simple call to our company.
