About this Facility:

  • IMPORTANT: The Devonshire Station is currently closed, but we are keeping this below information for readers in the event the station does reopen without prior notice. 

  • The Devonshire jail is relatively small, anyone who isn’t bailed out of it within twenty-four hours may be transferred to the larger Van Nuys Jail, the Twin Towers Jail or the Lynwood Jail (if they are women).

  • 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.

 

Visiting Procedures:

  • Inmates are permitted only one visit per day for 15 minutes. Up to two persons may visit at one given time regardless of age. Only a child of an inmate may visit an inmate. All minors must be accompanied by an adult. 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.

 

Telephone Access & Mail:

  • During booking, the person being held in the Jail, may make up to three (3) free local telephone calls. Once housed, inmates may make unlimited collect calls.

  • Since arrestees will be housed at the Jail for a limited amount of time, you should not attempt to send mail to an inmate at the Covina 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.
