Visiting Hours

All visits to the Glendale Jail, the third busiest municipal jail in Los Angeles County, are by video and phone - also, known as "close circuit TV" or "video conferencing." You may visit an inmate at the Glendale Jail Monday through Sunday from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The Glendale Jail's visiting hours and roster of inmates eligible for visits vary and are subject to change without notice. Always call the Jail before visiting. You can reach an officer at the Glendale Jail at any time by calling 818-548-3124. Attorneys, clergymen and bail bondsmen may visit at any time for as long as they like.

Visiting Procedures

Inmates are allowed to have one 15 minute visit per day. Only (1) person may visit an inmate during a visit. Children may visit inmates. Although all minors must be accompanied by an adult, only the minor will be permitted to visit the inmate because of the one visitor per day rule (a "lap child" with an adult will not be counted as a visitor).

Visitors' Restrictions

Only visitors with a valid ID will be allowed to visit inmates at the Jail. Acceptable forms of ID include:

  • California Identification Card
  • Driver's License (any state)
  • U.S. Military Identification
  • Passport/Visa
  • Mexican Consulate Card
  • Permanent Resident Card
  • Valid School Identification Card or Birth Certificate (if visitor is a minor).

Officers at the Jail may deny visitation rights to anyone for any number of reasons.

Persons on probation and/or on parole should contact the Watch Commander at 818-548-3145 to obtain a clearance that would allow them to visit an inmate at the Jail.

Telephone Access & Mail

During booking, the person being held in the Glendale Jail, ("the arrestee"), may make three free telephone calls. Arrestees/Inmates may not receive calls or phoned-in messages, but may make unlimited collect calls between 8:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Unless the arrestee/inmate is a participant in the Pay To Stay Program or a Trustee (an inmate serving out his sentence at the Glendale Jail), he will be housed at the Glendale Jail for no more than 48 hours, excluding holidays and weekends.

You may send mail addressed to an inmate to:
