VAN NUYS JAIL:

Location:

  • 6240 Sylmar Avenue, Van Nuys, CA 91406

  • Jail Phone: (818) 374-9645

  • Bail Bond Phone:

  • Although you may find metered parking on Sylmar Avenue near the Library, there are plenty of parking garages near the Jail.

 

Visiting Hours:

  • You may visit an inmate at the Los Angeles Police Department Van Nuys Community Jail & Police Station ("the Jail") Monday through Sunday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Please note that the Jail's visiting hours and roster of inmates who are eligible for visits vary and are subject to change without notice. 

  • The Van Nuys Jail generally books arrestees from the following communities: Sepulveda, Sherman Oaks, Valley Glen, Van Nuys, Ventura Business District and West Van Nuys.

  • Because the Torrance Police Department Jail's visiting hours and roster of inmates who are eligible for visits vary and are subject to change without notice, you should always call the Jail before visiting. 

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

  • IMPORTANT: After about 12 to 24 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:

  • Only visitors with one of the following valid forms of ID will be allowed to visit inmates at the Jail:

    • California Identification Card

    • Driver's License (any state)

    • U.S. Military Identification

    • Passport/Visa

    • Mexican Consulate Card

    • Permanent Resident Card

    • Valid School Identification Card or Birth Certificate (if visitor is a minor).

  • Although officers at the Jail may deny visitation rights to anyone for any number of reasons, visitors with outstanding warrants, traffic or parking tickets, ex-felons, persons on probation and persons formerly incarcerated in State prison may visit the Jail.'

  • 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 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.

 

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.
