San Fernando Jail

Location

910 First Street, San Fernando, CA 90069. Paid and metered parking is available nearby.

Visiting Hours

You may visit an inmate at the San Fernando Valley Jail, which is operated by the City of San Fernando (the "San Fernando Valley Jail" or the "Jail") Monday – Sunday from 6 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Because the Jail's visiting hours and roster of inmates who are eligible for visits vary and are subject to change without notice, you should always call the Jail before visiting. You can reach an officer at the Jail at any time by calling 818-898-1267.

Visiting Procedures

A visit with an inmate may be 5 –10 minutes or longer depending upon the availability of staff. Generally, an inmate may receive one visit per day. During each permitted visit, an inmate may have only one adult visitor. Minors may not visit the Jail. Attorneys, clergymen and bail bondsmen may visit at any time for as long as they like.

Visitors' Restrictions

Only visitors with a valid ID will be allowed to visit inmates at the Jail. Officers at the Jail may deny visitation rights to anyone for any number of reasons.

Arrestees' Telephone Access & Mail

During booking, the person being held in jail, (the "arrestee"), may be allowed to make three (3) free telephone calls. Once booked, an arrestee may make one collect telephone call from the Jail per day if the officer in charge allows. Because most inmates will be held at the Jail for no more than 48 hours, inmates should not be sent mail.

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.
