Location:

  • 207 N. Garfield Avenue, Pasadena, California 91101

  • Jail Phone: (626) 744-4616

  • Bail Bond Phone:

  • While there are several parking structures near the Pasadena Jail, metered street parking is also available on N. Garfield.

 

Visiting Hours:

  • You may visit a defendant at the Pasadena Jail on any day of the week from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. provided that the person has been incarcerated for at least 24 hours prior to your visit. A defendant is allowed only one 15 minute visit per day. However, that visit can include up to two adults. Persons under the age of 18 will not be allowed to visit defendants. Attorneys, clergymen and bail bondsman may visit at any time for as long as they like. You can obtain information about persons who have been arrested in Pasadena, Sierra Madre, San Marino, South Pasadena, California; or in Altadena, California, by the California Highway Patrol by calling the Pasadena Police Department Jail

  • Attorneys, bail bondsmen and members of the clergy may visit at any time for as long as they like.

  • 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:

  • All visitors to the Pasadena Jail must possess either a valid California ID, valid photo ID from another state, passport or an ID from an acceptable source. Visitors with outstanding warrants should not visit the Jail as they may be subject to immediate arrest.

  • Persons on parole are permitted to visit inmates because a glass partition prevents visitors from having direct contact with inmates. A person previously incarcerated at the Jail may visit an inmate provided that the previously incarcerated visitor has no outstanding warrants.

  • Officers at the Pasadena Jail may deny visitation rights to anyone for any number of reasons.

  • All visitors and all personal property brought into the Jail will be searched. Visitors in possession of weapons, illegal drugs or contraband may be arrested.

Telephone Access & Mail:

  • During booking, the person being held in jail may make three free local telephone calls. Once booked, a defendant may make unlimited collect telephone calls from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Defendants are not permitted to use calling cards and a caller will not be permitted to leave a message for a defendant with a deputy at the Jail.

  • Because most defendants will be held at the Pasadena Jail for no more than 48 hours— unless the arrest occurs on a weekend, defendants should not be sent mail.

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.
