Visiting Hours

The Redondo Beach Jail ("Jail") temporarily houses both male and female persons arrested in the City of Redondo Beach, California. Juveniles of both gender and individuals participating in the Jail's "pay to stay" program are also housed at the Redondo Beach Jail.

Visitation at the Redondo Beach Jail is based upon the availability of jailors. Call the Jail to see whether jailors are conducting an activity that limits their availability before visiting the Jail. Visitors may visit inmates at the Redondo Beach Jail Monday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m or 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. If you plan to visit a regular inmate (one not participating in the Jail's pay-to-stay program), call at least one (1) hour before your planned visit to schedule an appointment and verify the availability of the inmate you are seeking to visit.

Making an appointment will also ensure your visit will be given priority over unscheduled visits. If you plan to visit an inmate participating in the pay-to-stay program, call at least thirty (30) minutes in advance of your visit to make an appointment. Visiting hours at the Redondo Beach Jail are subject to change without notice. Therefore, always contact the Redondo Beach Jail prior to your visit.
