The on-site jail at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station is comprised of 11 cells and has room for about 40 inmates. It is not designed for the long-term housing of inmates, and, as a result, if someone is not bailed out after 72 hours, or if the jail becomes overcrowded, he or she is likely to be transferred to one of the larger facilities downtown. Men are taken to Twin Towers Correctional Facility while women are transferred to the Lynwood Jail.

When an inmate is transferred to one of the larger county facilities, he or she must be processed into the system at their new location. During this period, the inmate cannot be bailed out, even if a bail bond has been obtained. It is only after the inmate has been “processed in” to the larger facility, that he or she can then be “processed out.” As a result, inmates who are transferred are likely to spend an additional 24 hours or longer in custody as they go through the system.
If the bail bond process is begun quickly, though, while the inmate is still located at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station jail, then it is possible to avoid the transfer process altogether and bail him or her out very quickly from Santa Clarita.
If you are unsure as to where your friend or loved one is located, the LASD Inmate Locator can be a useful tool.
