All visitors and all personal property brought into the Jail may be searched. Visitors in possession of weapons, illegal drugs or contraband may be arrested. Visitors should call the Jail to determine what personal items may be brought into the Jail.
Telephone Access & Mail
During booking, the person being held in jail ("the arrestee"), may be allowed to make a number of free telephone calls. Once booked, an arrestee may make unlimited collect telephone calls from the Jail. Because most inmates will be held at the Van Nuys Jail for no more than 48 hours, inmates should not be sent mail.
Mentally or Medically Ill Arrestees
A family member of a mentally and/or medically ill arrestee/inmate may immediately after the arrest of the family member call the Jail and provide the desk officer with the information regarding the arrestee's mental and medical condition and medications.
