Wilshire Jail Inmate Locator

Has a good friend, loved one or member of your family been arrested and transported to the Wilshire Jail for booking and processing? Many times, smaller jails like the Wilshire jail won’t hold a detainee for very long.

The Wilshire Community Police Station and Jail serves the residents of Arlington Heights, Brookside Park, Carthay Circle, Country Club Park, Fairfax, Greater Wilshire, Hancock Park, Harvard Heights, Larchmont Village, Little Ethiopia, Mid-City, Mid-Wilshire, Miracle Mile, Olympic Park, Park La Brea, South Carthay, Wellington Square, Western Heights, Wilshire Center, Wilshire Vista and Windsor Square.

If bail isn’t posted early, the defendant will likely be transferred to a larger Los Angeles County facility such as the Twin Towers Jail where they will have to go through additional processing, both out of the Wilshire jail and into the County Jail. This process can often take hours.

At SCV Bail Bonds, we urge you to start the bail bond process while the arrestee is still at this smaller jail. That way, we can bail them out even faster. For more information, please call SCV Bail Bonds 24/7.

Our toll-free number is 877-422-4591 and you can speak with a knowledgeable agent who understands the workings of the Wilshire Jail.
