Visiting Hours and Procedures
You may visit a defendant at the Pasadena Jail on any day of the week from
1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. provided that the person has been incarcerated
for at least 24 hours prior to your visit. A defendant is allowed only
one 15 minute visit per day. However, that visit can include up to two
adults. Persons under the age of 18 will not be allowed to visit defendants.
Attorneys, clergymen and bail bondsman may visit at any time for as long
as they like. You can obtain information about persons who have been arrested
in Pasadena, Sierra Madre, San Marino, South Pasadena, California; or
in Altadena, California, by the California Highway Patrol by calling the
Pasadena Police Department Jail, any time, at 626-744-4616.
All visitors to the Pasadena Jail (the "Jail") must possess either
a valid California ID, valid photo ID from another state, passport or
an ID from an acceptable source. Visitors with outstanding warrants should
not visit the Jail as they may be subject to immediate arrest. Persons
on parole are permitted to visit inmates because a glass partition prevents
visitors from having direct contact with inmates. A person previously
incarcerated at the Jail may visit an inmate provided that the previously
incarcerated visitor has no outstanding warrants. Officers at the Pasadena
Jail may deny visitation rights to anyone for any number of reasons. All
visitors and all personal property brought into the Jail will be searched.
Visitors in possession of weapons, illegal drugs or contraband may be arrested.
Defendant's Telephone Access
During booking, the person being held in jail, ("the defendant"),
may make three free local telephone calls. Once booked, a defendant may
make unlimited collect telephone calls from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Defendants
are not permitted to use calling cards and a caller will not be permitted
to leave a message for a defendant with a deputy at the Jail. Because
most defendants will be held at the Pasadena Jail for no more than 48
hours— unless the arrest occurs on a weekend, defendants should
not be sent mail.
Any time after arrest, a defendant may authorize the release of his personal
property to anyone unless that property has been entered into evidence.
Personal property can only be picked-up during visiting hours. The person
picking up the defendant's personal property must present a valid
California ID or an ID from an acceptable source.
