Pomona City Jail
490 West Mission, Pomona, California, 91766. Free parking is available on site.
The Pomona City Jail temporarily houses male and female inmates for the
City of Pomona and the County of Los Angeles as well as male detainees
for ICE (U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement). In addition to temporarily
housing arrestees and detainees, the Pomona City Jail ("Jail")
houses inmate-workers who are serving out their sentences as well as inmates
participating in the Jail's "pay to stay" program. As a
part of the Jail's inmate-workers' program, inmates serving out
their sentences must cook, clean and perform general housekeeping duties
during the day. Inmates participating in the Jail's pay-to-stay program
serve out their sentences only on the weekends.
Visitors are permitted to visit inmates/detainees at the Pomona City Jail
on a "first come, first serve basis." Regular visiting hours
for regular inmates/detainees are Monday through Sunday from 10:00 am
to 2:45 pm. Visiting hours for inmates participating in the inmate-workers'
program begin at 5:00 pm and end at 6:00 pm daily. Inmates participating
in the pay-to-stay program are not allowed to have visitors because they
are incarcerated only Friday through Sunday each week that they are serving
out their sentences.
Since visiting hours at the Pomona City Jail are subject to change without
notice, you should always contact the Pomona City Jail prior to your visit
to verify visiting hours and to make sure that the inmate you are seeking
to visit is eligible for visits. You can reach an officer at the Pomona
City Jail ("the Jail") at any time by calling 909-620-2131.
Attorneys and clergymen are permitted to visit at any time provided they
call ahead and give notice of their intended visit.
All inmates and detainees are limited to one visitor per day. The length
of each visit depends upon the status of the inmate/detainee. Regular
inmates/detainees are allowed to have one 15 to 30 minute visit per day.
Inmate-workers are allowed to have one hour visit per day. Inmates participating
in the pay-to-stay program are not allowed to have visitors. Minors (children
under the age of eighteen) may visit inmates but they must be accompanied
by an adult.
Only visitors with a valid photo ID will be allowed to visit inmates at
the Pomona City Jail.
Officers at the Jail may deny visitation rights to anyone for any number

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.
Once the requested release has been approved, the Pomona City Jail will
release all of the inmate's personal property not just individual
items. Inmates under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be permitted
to authorize the release of their personal property. An inmate's personal
property may be picked up at the front desk of the Pomona City Jail from
10:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. daily.
To obtain the release of an arrestee's vehicle, contact the Pomona
City Jail or 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 Pomona City
Jail at 909-620-2131 to obtain a property release form signed by the inmate
releasing the key to you.
