Bell Jail

Location

6326 Pine Avenue, Bell, California 90201. Street parking is usually available.

Visiting Hours and Procedures

Frequently, the Bell Jail, which is operated by the City of Bell Police Department, does not allow inmates to receive visitors. Since this policy may change without notice, you should always call the Jail to find out the current policy. You can reach an officer at the Bell Jail at any time by calling 323-585-1245 or 323-923-2600, Ext. 279.

Women arrested in the City of Bell are transferred to the Century Regional Detention Facility, ("CRDF"), commonly known as the Lynwood Jail, which is operated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Visitors' Restrictions

If visitations are permitted, only visitors with a valid ID will be allowed to visit inmates at the Jail. Officers at the Jail may deny visitation rights to anyone for any number of reasons.

Telephone Access & Mail

During booking, the person being held in the Bell Jail, ("the arrestee"), may make three free telephone calls. Once housed, inmates may make unlimited collect calls. Since arrestees will be housed at the Bell Jail for no more than 2-4 days, you should not attempt to send mail to an inmate at the Bell Jail.

Picking up Personal Property

Any time after arrest, an arrestee/inmate may authorize the release of his personal property to anyone unless that property has been entered into evidence.
