Visiting Hours

  • Located on historic Route 66, the Arcadia Police Department Jail  temporarily houses male and female arrestees for the City of Arcadia, the County of Los Angeles and detainees for ICE - U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement. The Jail also houses participants in its Pay-to-Stay Program for longer periods of time. You may visit an inmate at the Arcadia Police Department Jail, which is operated by the City of Arcadia, Monday through Friday, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on weekends and holidays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

  • IMPORTANT: After about 24 to 48 hours, the new arrestees/inmates will be transferred to another jail. This transfer usually leads to a longer time in Jail, resulting in anywhere from 12-24 hours as additional paperwork is conducted. To avoid the extra jail time, we always recommend that the bail bond process should be initiated as soon as possible, so the defendant can avoid the transfer process altogether.
