CITY OF BELL JAIL:

Location:

  • 6326 Pine Avenue, Bell, California 90201

  • Jail Phone: (323) 585-1245

  • Bail Bonds Phone: 

  • Street parking is usually available.

 

Visiting Hours and Procedures:

  • Frequently, the Bell Jail, which is operated by the City of Bell Police Department, does not allow inmates to receive visitors. Since this policy may change without notice, you should always call the Jail to find out the current policy. 

  • Women arrested in the City of Bell are transferred to the Century Regional Detention Facility, ("CRDF"), commonly known as the Lynwood Jail, which is operated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

  • IMPORTANT: After about 24 to 48 hours, the arrestee/inmate 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.

 

Visitors' Restrictions

  • If visitations are permitted, 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.

 

Telephone Access & Mail

  • During booking, the person being held in the Bell Jail, may make three free telephone calls. Once housed, inmates may make unlimited collect calls. Since arrestees will be housed at the Bell Jail for no more than 2-4 days, you should not attempt to send mail to an inmate at the Bell Jail.

 

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. If property has been entered as evidence, it will not be available for release until after the criminal case is concluded.
