Downey Jail

Location

10911 S. Brookshire Avenue, Downey, California, 90241. Parking is available on site.

Visiting Hours

Because arrestees at the Downey Jail are either cited out or taken to the County Jail within five hours of an arrest, members of the general public are not allowed to visit arrestees/inmates during their incarceration at the Downey Jail.

While attorneys, clergymen and bail bondsmen do not typically visit inmates at the Downey Jail, if they wish to do so, they should contact the Watch Commander at the Downey Jail to arrange the desired visitation. You can reach an officer at the Downey Jail at any time by calling 562-904-2371.

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. If the property has been entered into evidence, it will not be available until the criminal case is completed. The person picking up the inmate's personal property must present a valid California ID or an ID from an acceptable source.

To obtain the release of an arrestee's vehicle, contact the arresting agency who will provide you with the name of the towing company that you will need to contact to learn if the vehicle has been impounded or not. If you need to obtain a car key that was in an inmate's possession at the time of arrest, contact the Downey Jail to obtain a property release form signed by the inmate releasing the key to you.

Telephone Access & Mail

During booking, the person being held in the Downey Jail, ("the arrestee"), may make telephone calls. Arrestees/Inmates may not receive calls or phoned-in messages. If property has been entered as evidence, it will not be available for release until after the criminal case is concluded.
