Visiting Hours

The Avalon Sheriff Station Jail, situated in the one-square mile City of Avalon on Santa Catalina Island, houses temporary arrestees and a limited number of trustees ( persons serving out their sentences) at any given time because of its size. The Avalon Sheriff Station provides law enforcement services to Santa Catalina Island ("Catalina Island"), San Clemente Island and covers ocean waters between the aforementioned islands and mainland southern California.

Since arrestees will not be held at the Avalon Sheriff Station Jail ("Jail") for no more than 48, excluding holidays and weekends, they may not be at the Jail long enough to receive visits. If you wish to visit an arrestee at the Jail, you may do so Monday through Sunday provided the arrestee is still present at the Jail. Trustee inmates are allowed to receive visitors on Saturday or Sunday. In either case, if you plan to visit an inmate at the Avalon Sheriff Station Jail, you should contact the Avalon Sheriff Station Jail at 310-510-0174 to arrange visitation. If you will be arriving on a ferry from the mainland, you may want to call Catalina Express, a ferry service which provides daily transportation from San Pedro or Long Beach to and from Avalon. You can reach Catalina Express by calling 800-622-2354.

Since the Avalon Sheriff Station 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 Avalon Sheriff Station Jail before visiting. You can reach an officer at the Avalon Sheriff Station Jail at any time by calling 310-510-0174.

Upon the presentation of a valid State Bar identification card and photo identification, attorneys are generally permitted to visit inmates at any time for as long as they like. Visits by members of the clergy and bails bondsmen may be limited. All visitors should contact the Avalon Sheriff Station Jail to coordinate visitations.
