      San Diego County Jail Profiles & Information (ALL Facilities)

      GENERAL INFORMATION

      Having a friend or family member booked into jail can create confusion and uncertainty, both for the inmate and the loved ones involved. You may have questions about mail, phone calls, visiting, health care, and more. You may find it difficult to contact the person who was arrested for some time after booking, and the nature of the jail system may make it difficult for you to acquire the information you need concerning the arrest.

      Important information about the San Diego County Jails and their inmates can be found on these pages and by contacting our helpful staff.

      "Who's In Jail"

      This online resource allows you to search for inmates in the Sheriff's custody. Virtually all public information about the inmate is available in this area of the site. The inmate's housing location, charges, next court date, and projected release date (if known) are available by visiting Who's in Jail. It also serves as the entry point to sending electronic messages to inmates.

      By selecting from the topics listed to the right, you can learn a great deal about the jail system and the programs and services available to inmates. In most cases, your questions about mail, visiting, phone calls and more can be answered by visiting these pages.

      San Diego County Jail Facitliy Informations - East Mesa Detention/Fac 8/George F. Bailey


      East Mesa Detention Facility

      446 Alta Rd, Suite 5200
      San Diego, CA 92158
      (619) 661-2608

      The East Mesa Detention Facility (EMDF) was initially built as a probation camp in conjunction with the George F. Bailey Detention Facility. It was turned over to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department in 1991.

      EMDF is a Type II medium security facility. It has a Corrections Standards Authority (CSA) rated capacity of 360 beds and currently has over 500 available beds. Laundry and food production for EMDF and other facilities is coordinated with the use of inmate workers at the facility through the department's growing Inmate Industries Program. The Inmate Industry Program also includes print-shop skills, janitorial services, computer graphics and construction trades.

      EMDF rests on eight acres in south San Diego County near the Otay Mesa border crossing. It consists of four inmate housing dormitories, a mess hall, several classrooms, chaplain, counselor, and staff administrative offices. The beautiful landscaping, softball field, volleyball and handball courts are maintained by the inmate work crews.

      The Inmate Worker Operations office serves as a temporary employment agency, hiring and assigning hundreds of inmates on daily basis to the various work crews. The general inmate population housed at EMDF is used as an inmate worker pool since inmates are released on a constant basis. Inmates must be interviewed, screened and cleared for work details as they come available.

      EMDF is able to provide more rehabilitative programs than other jails due to the working nature of the facility. In addition to earning a GED, inmates are able to earn certificates in construction trades, printing press operation, janitorial services, computer graphics and industrial laundry machine operation. The Grossmont High School District manages and teaches these programs. Due to the lower classification and worker status of the inmates, they have more benefits than inmates at high-security facilities including more outside yard time, contact visits, and better recreational facilities.

      Visiting Schedule

      Social visit reservations can be made on-line or by telephone. The San Diego Sheriff’s eVisit Reservations may be accessed through the Who’s in Jail?website Tuesday through Sunday, 6:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Telephone visit reservations may also be made from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday by calling one of the following telephone numbers:

      Facility 8 Detention Facility


      446 Alta Rd, Suite 5300
      San Diego, CA 92158

      (619) 661-2702


      Detention Facility 8 is a medium security facility built in conjunction with the George F. Bailey Detention Facility (GBDF) in 1991. It is a mirror image of the cell housing units found at GBDF.

      From 1991 to 2006, the County of San Diego leased the unit and associated land to the Wackenhut Corporation and then to the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA). On June 1, 2006, by contractual agreement, the original housing unit was returned to the County of San Diego. Renovations to bring the facility up to standards immediately began.

      Facility 8 contains three housing modules - two modules with 34 double occupancy cells, and one with 32 double occupancy cells - for a total of 200 beds. Although Facility 8 is designed as a maximum security jail, only low-medium security inmates classified between level I and III are housed.

      Facility 8's visitor and information office in addition to the beautifully landscaped visit yard allows for professional visitation and provides each inmate the opportunity to receive two half-hour supervised outdoor contact visits per week. A newly refurbished exercise yard will allow for at least three hours per week of recreation / exercise per inmate and a redesigned multi-purpose room will allow for the delivery of drug dependency counseling, religious services, and educational programs.

      Inmates’ minor medical needs are addressed through a daily nurse’s sick call and medication distribution. More serious medical needs and dental care are provided at GBDF. All meals will be prepared at the EMDF Central Kitchen and delivered three times per day.

      George F. Bailey Detention Facility

      446 Alta Rd, Suite 5300
      San Diego, CA 92158

      (619) 661-2620

      George F. Bailey Detention Facility (GBDF) is located in a remote location in Otay Mesa. The facility is one of four currently operating as part of the East Mesa Detention Complex. It shares the complex with EMDF, East Mesa Juvenile Detention Facility, and CCA (a privately run federal detention center).

      GBDF is a maximum security facility and the largest of all the facilities operated under the San Diego County Sheriff’s jurisdiction. Construction of the facility was completed in 1991. The facility was opened for limited operation in 1993 and was fully operational in 1994.

      The facility design includes six housing units, a medical area, an inmate processing area and an administrative area. Located in the administrative area are the Detentions Processing Unit, Operational Support Unit, and the Facility Command staff.

      Operational and support staffing levels include sworn and professional staff.
      Staff includes Food Services, Religious Services, Medical Services, Counseling Services, Laundry and Supply Services, Administrative Support Services, Detention Processing Services, and Maintenance Support.

      The Corrections Standards Authority (CSA) rated capacity for the facility is 1,332 inmates. The self-rated capacity is 1,696 inmates. GBDF averages a daily population of 1,500 inmates. It houses a very diverse population of inmates, some with special housing needs. Currently, the facility houses three units of distinct special management inmates for the entire jail system. They consist of the homosexual/transsexuals, Sexually Violent Predators (SVPs), and the child-victim sex offenders.

      GBDF receives on average 1,200 visitors per week, including both social and professional visits.

      Both sworn and professional staff work together to process on average 300 incoming inmate transfers, 750 inmates to court, 100 inmates to prison, and 140 inmate releases per week. The medical staff responds to approximately 1,900 requests for services per week including medication, doctor visits, dental visits and psychiatric visits.

      San Diego County Jail Facitliy Information - Las Colinas/South Bay


      Las Colinas Detention Facility


      9000 Cottonwood Ave
      Santee, CA 92071

      (619) 258-3176


      The Las Colinas Detention Facility (LCDF) serves as the primary point of intake for women prisoners in San Diego County. This facility began as a juvenile facility in 1967 and was converted to an adult women’s institution in 1979. LCDF is the department’s second oldest facility.

      LCDF rests on 15 acres of land and has 11 housing units. Of the 11 units, seven are “dormitory” style, meaning the inmates share a common living and sleeping space. The rated capacity is 750 beds.

      LCDF processes and houses all classification levels of inmates, from the minor misdemeanor offenses to violent offenses. LCDF also has a Psychiatric Security Unit.

      LCDF runs a 24-hour a day medical operation including weekends and holidays. In addition to daily nursing rounds, contracted physicians, psychiatrists, dentists, Planned Parenthood, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Orthopedics and Internal Medicine visit the facility daily.

      The Detention Services Bureau contracts with the Grossmont School District to provide educational programs for the inmates. Inmates may participate in the Clothing Manufacturing, Computer Graphics, Office Occupations (data entry), Landscaping and all GED programs. The programs are designed to give the inmates exposure to the skills for future employment opportunities.

      LCDF has a complete kitchen staffed by senior cooks, a supervisor, and inmates. The Food Services staff prepares an average of 2,300 meals per day to feed the inmate population. The LCDF Food Services Unit is prepared to and will provide meals to Law Enforcement and volunteer personnel during a county critical incident (i.e. Search and Rescue Missions and Natural Disaster incidents.).

      South Bay Detention Facility

      500 Third Ave
      Chula Vista, CA 91910

      (619) 691-4810

      Located in the heart of revitalized Chula Vista, the South Bay Detention Facility (SBDF) was constructed four stories beneath the South Bay Regional Justice Center and opened for service to the community in 1982. It is a non-booking facility consisting of two detention levels.

      SBDF houses over 400 inmates, consisting both high and low-level inmate classifications. Inmates housed at SBDF account for approximately 7.9% of the total inmate population of San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

      SBDF maintains a track record as being one of the safest facilities for both inmates and staff. It consistently records some of the lowest crime rates per population. Thus, inmate morale is higher and incidents involving injuries to inmates and/or staff are minimal.

      As one of San Diego County’s less populated detention facilities, SBDF can be managed by a dozen deputies and a Watch Commander. A full compliment of professional support staff helps keep the facility running efficiently. A professionally trained medical staff treats inmates for minor afflictions and illnesses. Detention Processing staff manage the inmates court appearances and assist the friends and family of inmates to coordinate visitation, financial transactions, and bail.

      SBDF provides a wide range of services to assist inmates in preparation to rejoin society as productive, law-abiding citizens. A full-time counselor is staffed to address individual needs and coordinate recovery programs for the inmates to attend. Inmates are encouraged to attend Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings conducted by certified instructors who come in and provide bilingual services. Church services and bible study are also provided to the inmates in both Spanish and English.

      San Diego County Jail Facitliy Information - San Diego County Jail



      San Diego Central Jail

      1173 Front St
      San Diego, CA 92101

      (619) 615-2700

      The San Diego Central Jail (SDCJ) serves as the primary point of intake for male prisoners in San Diego County. Over 75,000 bookings are initiated at SDCJ.

      The facility is staffed by nearly 200 sworn employees and nearly 200 professional staff members.

      SDCJ opened in May 1998. The state-of-the-art facility makes extensive use of touch-screen controls and video surveillance. At the heart of the facility is the Central Command Center, which has the capability of electronically controlling all jail operations in the event of an emergency or major system failure.


      SDCJis 230 feet tall, making it the tallest construction project ever undertaken by the County of San Diego. It consists of 11 floors with a total of 17 levels counting the mezzanines and basement. The building provides a pleasing aesthetic addition to the downtown San Diego skyline, having been awarded multiple “orchids” for architectural design, interior design, and lighting design. The Corrections Standards Authority (CSA) rated capacity is 944 beds. The average daily population is nearly 900 inmates.

      The population at SDCJ consists primarily of special handling inmates, and newly booked inmates awaiting transfer to other facilities. The special handling inmates consist of those with serious medical challenges, those under psychiatric care, inmates representing themselves in court, as well as defendants facing high-publicity trials.

      SDCJ provides a wide range of medical and psychiatric services, including on-site dialysis, infectious disease control, and dental care. Services are provided by physicians, psychiatrists, dentists, nurses, and clinical social workers. SDCJ’s Psychiatric Security Unit is the largest acute psychiatric treatment facility in San Diego County.

      San Diego County Jail Facitliy Information - Vista Detention



      Vista Detention Facility

      325 S. Melrose Dr, Suite 200
      Vista, CA 92081

      (760) 940-4473

      The Vista Detention Facility (VDF) is classified as a Type II Facility by the California Corrections Standards Authority. VDF serves as the primary point of intake for male and female prisoners in north San Diego County.


      Opened in 1978, VDF sits on several acres of developed land which is owned and operated by the County of San Diego. The facility has been remodeled twice. In 1989, VDF expanded an additional 576 beds, bringing its total to 886. The Corrections Standards Authority (CSA) rated capacity is 820 beds. VDF is just one building in the massive North County Regional Center complex (NCRC). Other buildings include the North County Superior Courts, Vista Sheriff’s Station, and the North County Law Library. All buildings with the exception of the Law Library are physically connected.

      VDF is the only facility that receives and houses both male and female pre-trial arrestees on both felony and misdemeanor charges. The population at VDF consists primarily of inmates awaiting court proceedings for North County cases. Our special handling inmate population consists of those with medical challenges, those under psychiatric care, an administrative segregation unit, as well as defendants facing high-publicity trials.

      VDF provides a wide range of medical and psychiatric services, including infectious disease control, X-ray and dental care. Services are provided by physicians, psychiatrists, dentists, nurses, and clinical social workers.

      Access to Courts and Counsel

      Inmates are entitled to confidential correspondence and consultation with the courts and legal counsel. They can also request a hearing in court by using the inmate request form. Attorneys and other professionals of record can visit an inmate by presenting photo identification and a professional card. The visit is limited to a reasonable length of time, which is determined in part by facility operations and needs. Foreign citizens can have professional visits with consular staff from their country.

      Professional visitors can call in advance to reserve interview times prior to their arrival. This reservation privilege may be lost after two instances of tardiness by the professional visitor. Please be aware that all briefcases and parcels entering the facility are subject to search by security staff.

      In addition to confidential correspondence, inmates have access to unlimited collect telephone calls to their attorneys during their leisure time. The facility correctional counselor can also provide the inmate with various in-house and community legal resources.

      Inmate Property and Money Accounts

      INMATE PROPERTY

      Prior to bringing an inmate into County Jail, arresting officers are required to inventory the arrestee’s personal property and heat-seal it into a bag. In most cases, this makes it unnecessary for jail personnel to handle the inmate’s property. After the inmate’s cash has been accepted, it is placed in an account available to the inmate for commissary and other purposes. Any unused funds are returned to the inmate upon discharge from custody.

      Prior to being assigned to a housing unit, inmates are required to exchange their personal clothing for jail clothing. Their personal clothing is bagged and stored securely until their release. No bulk property (backpacks, sleeping bags, bicycles, etc.) is accepted at any County Jail. Questions concerning the location of such property should be directed to the arresting agency.

      Inmates receive basic hygiene items free of charge when first entering Sheriff’s custody. While they have less than $2.00 on their accounts they will continue to receive these items. When they have money on their account they may choose to purchase additional items as well as limited amounts of food items through the jail commissary.


      MONEY ACCOUNTS

      When an individual is booked into the County Jail, an account is opened to safeguard that person’s money as long as the inmate remains in custody. While in custody, inmates can use the money “on their books” to make purchases from the Sheriff’s Commissary. Items available through the commissary include food items, toiletry articles, writing materials, postage, and pre-paid telephone cards. Although the Sheriff’s Department provides for all basic nutrition and hygiene needs, permitting inmates to purchase items from the commissary provides a level of variety not otherwise available to them.

      In order to allow inmates continued access to the commissary during their incarceration, funds may be added to their accounts at any time. Cash deposits are preferred, and may be made to an inmate’s account at the Information Office of any Sheriff’s detention facility or by visiting www.sdsheriffcommissary.com. Certain checks may also be used to make deposits to an inmate’s account. This may be accomplished with a cashier’s check from a United States bank, or with a money order issued by the U.S. Postal Service, Western Union, a credit union, bank, savings & loan, etc. Government instruments such as payroll and retirement checks can also be deposited to an inmate’s account, as well as checks issued by the State Prison System or a San Diego County Probation Department Honor Camp. Please note that personal checks and multiple party checks are not accepted. Deposits will not be accepted to an inmate’s account if it would cause the account balance to exceed $500. (An inmate is limited to spending a maximum of $100 per order on commissary items.)

      Funds may be deposited to an inmate’s account through the mail; however, please do not send cash by mail. When inmates receive an acceptable check or money order through the mail, they have the option of cashing it for deposit to their account, or retaining it in their property. If they elect to cash it, they endorse the check or money order and jail staff will process it for deposit. There is a waiting period of five working days for the check to clear, after which time the funds will be available for use. When inmates choose not to cash a check or money order, or if it is not honored, the check is placed into their property. All personal checks will be refused for deposit and placed instead into the inmate’s property. All unused funds, as well as all items stored in property, will be returned to the inmate at the time of release from custody.

      Questions regarding inmate fund accounts, including funds owed may be directed to the Detentions Accounting Office at the facility from which you were released.

      Commissary or e-Commerce Purchases - (619) 661-2860 (Do not contact facilities)
      George Bailey Detention Facility - (619) 661-2729
      Las Colinas Detention Facility - (619) 258-3168

      San Diego Central Jail - (619) 615-2545
      Vista Detention Facility - (760) 940-4677

      Please allow seven working days after release to coordinate the disbursement of funds owed to you.

      Inmate Telephone Information

      California Penal Code §851.5 establishes the right of an arrested person to make at least three free local telephone calls upon being booked: one call to an attorney, one to a bail bond agent, and one to a relative or other personal contact. In addition to any telephone access provided by the arresting agency, the intake holding areas of the jails are equipped with phones providing free local calls. Long distance calls may be made “collect.” Depending on the facility, additional free phones may be available during the booking process.

      After completing the booking process, inmates remaining in custody will be assigned to a housing module, where telephones are available in common areas, or “dayrooms.” Under normal conditions, inmates have access to phones several hours each day. Telephones are not available during certain activities such as meals, medication distributions, temporary lockdowns, etc. In the evenings, telephones are generally available until night count is conducted, after which time the phones are unavailable for the rest of the night. Telephone access may also be restricted for disciplinary reasons against an individual inmate or an entire housing module.

      Inmates cannot receive incoming phone calls or messages. In the event of an emergency, please contact the facility where the inmate is housed and ask to speak with a supervisor. He or she will determine if notification to the inmate is appropriate.

      Inmate telephone service is provided through Public Communications Services, Inc. (PCS). To help the inmates stay connected with the outside world, PCS provides the following multiple calling options.

      Collect Calls - Inmate places a collect call which is accepted and paid for by the receiving party (e.g. the friends and family) Note: Inmate cannot place Collect Calls to Cell Phones, Business Phones or numbers that are blocked from receiving collect calls.

      Prepaid Calls - (Daily Dial)- Prepaid call accounts are set up by an end user (e.g. the inmate's family/friends.) to eliminate the problem of blocked collect calls. Inmates can place prepaid calls to cell phones, office phones, hospitals and other commercial phone numbers that normally do not accept collect calls. When an inmate calls the end user, the call charges are deducted from the called party's prepaid account.

      To receive prepaid calls, Inmate Family/Friends and others can easily and quickly set up Prepaid Call Account by one of these methods

      a) Calling PCS at 1-888-288-9879
      b) E-mailing PCS at customerservice@pcsdailydial.com
      c) Visiting PCS' Website at www.pcsdailydial.com for more information.

      When interacting with PCS, the inmate telephone vendor, the following jail codes may be helpful:

      San Diego Central Jail - 20035
      South Bay Detention Facility - 20036
      George Bailey Detention Facility - 20037
      East Mesa Detention Facility - 20037
      Facility 8 - 20037
      Vista Detention Facility - 20039
      Las Colinas Detention Facility - 20041

      Debit Calls - Inmate prepays for debit phone time and places a call to their friends and family. Inmates can buy debit phone time through the Commissary in $10.00 and $20.00 increments. Debit calls can be placed to cell phones, business phones and international numbers.

      Blocking / Unblocking Numbers: PCS' inmate telephone service allow you to block your number so that inmates at the San Diego County Sheriff's Detention Facilities cannot call your number. You may also unblock your phone number.

      For other Customer Service Issues regarding Inmate Telephone Services, please contact PCS at 1(888) 288-9879.

      Inmate Mail & Book Information

      Writing letters can be an important and inexpensive way to maintain a close relationship with someone who is incarcerated. Inmates may purchase pre-stamped envelopes and may send and receive as many letters as they desire. Those without sufficient funds are provided a limited supply of pre-stamped envelopes. All mail entering and leaving a jail facility is searched for contraband and the writing will be scanned for security issues. In the case of “legal mail” between an inmate and the inmate’s attorney, the Facility Commander, the Board of Corrections, or other public officials, the correspondence is checked for contraband but not read or scanned.

      When addressing correspondence to someone in jail, please address the envelope in the following manner:




      If you do not have the booking number of the inmate to whom you are writing, you may look it up on the Sheriff’s Website using the feature titled “Who’s in Jail.”

      Remember deputies will review anything you send into the facility. You may send photos with your letters; however, photos depicting any nudity will not be forwarded to the inmate. Do not send cash, stamps, coins, drugs, cigarettes or any other property with your letter. Rather than sending money, you may deposit funds to an inmate’s account at the Information Office of any Sheriff’s Detention Facility or by visiting www.sdsheriffcommissary.com.


      BOOK, MAGAZINES, PERIODICALS

      Each facility maintains a supply of books and magazines available to the inmates. Daily newspapers are also provided in the housing units. Books or magazines mailed or delivered to a Sheriff’s detention facility by the general public will not be accepted. Books or magazines may be mailed to an inmate under the following conditions:

      1. They must have soft covers, no hardcover books will be accepted, and

      2. The book or magazine must be mailed directly from the publisher or bookseller.

      Inmate Visiting Information

      Due to the overwhelming success of the on-line reservation option, effective May 31, 2011 telephone visit reservation hours will change from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.

      For continued flexibility, customers will continue to have the opportunity to reserve visits on-line from 6:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.


      Inmates are allowed two 30 minute social visits per week. The visit week begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday. Inmates are only allowed one visit per day. Inmate workers are allowed additional visits dependent on their work schedule.

      Social visits are normally non-contact, conducted through a visit window using telephone handsets. Contact visits are allowed at the East Mesa and Facility 8 Detention Facilities. Each facility has a visit schedule that specifies the days and times available for inmate social visits and are subject to change without notice. Refer to a specific facility’s visit schedule by selecting the facility below:



      Required Identification
      Only those visitors with the following types of valid photo identification shall be allowed to visit inmates in the custody of the Sheriff:

      • Driver's license
      • Federal, state, local government identification card (any state)
      • Military identification
      • Passport
      • U.S. Immigration identification (including visas)
      • Border crossing card issued by the United States Department of Justice
      • Current high school identification for children who do not possess a current California driver’s license or California I.D. card
      • Matricula Consular ID card issued after April 22, 2002 by the Consul General of Mexico

      A maximum of 3 visitors (including children) may visit an inmate at any one time. Minors must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.

      Visit Reservations

      Same day visits (up to two hours prior) and next day visits may be made online or by telephone. Access the San Diego Sheriff’s eVisit through “Who’s in Jail” or call the number listed on the facility visit page above. Note: East Mesa and Facility 8 Detention Facilities do not allow same day visits.

      Additional visitors can only be added at the time of arrival. Visits will not be scheduled if the inmate has been previously scheduled for court on the same date.


      • Full name
      • Identification number
      • Date of birth
      • Current home address
      • Telephone number
      • Relationship to the inmate

      While we attempt to honor all visit reservations, visits may be changed or cancelled without notice. Also, changes in the inmate’s housing assignments may automatically cancel a scheduled visit.

      Visit Check-In

      All visitors must check in together one hour before the scheduled visit and are required to present valid photo identification. If a visitor is late, the visit may be cancelled.

      Walk-in visitors will be accepted, on a space available basis, as long as the visitors check in one hour before the visit time. Due to security reasons, East Mesa and Facility 8 Detention Facilities do not accept walk-in visitors.

      Cancellations must be made in person at any of the Sheriff’s detention facilities with valid photo identification.

      Inmates have the right to refuse visits at any time.

      There is no expectation of privacy in a jail facility. Social visits may be monitored or recorded.

      Visitors that have been incarcerated within the past 90 days shall not be permitted to visit without Watch Commander consent.

      If you have previously been convicted of a felony and served time in state prison, you may not enter the grounds of a county jail without the permission of the Facility Commander. That permission should be obtained in writing before attempting to schedule a visit. Entry to the facility grounds without such permission is a felony (California Penal Code §4571).

      RULES FOR EAST MESA AND FACILITY 8 DETENTION FACILITIES

      Due to the privilege of having contact visits at these facilities, the following additional visit regulations must be observed:

      • Nothing is to be brought into the facility except I.D. and car keys. One blanket, one diaper, and one bottle can be brought in for a baby. The following items are specifically prohibited: purses or bags, food or beverages, pets, firearms, knives, or other weapons, drugs or alcohol, and cigarettes. Keys are to be hung on board provided. All visitors must have a reservation to visit. Visits may be cancelled due to inclement weather.
      • Dress Code: No strapless garments, no halter-tops, no bare midriffs, no see-through, wrap around skirts, tops or dresses. No mini-skirts or short dresses. Shorts must not be shorter than mid-thigh in length. No slits on skirts or dresses. No latex or skintight pants, skirts or shorts.
      • No reclining together on the grass or tabletops. Visitors and inmates must sit across from each other, no laying or sitting on laps, no draping of legs, no body rubs/massages, no hugging, no straddling benches.


      HOSPITAL VISITS

      Occasionally, inmates may be admitted to hospitals for medical treatment. Visits may be allowed for hospitalized inmates, subject to approval of the Watch Commander. Persons wishing to visit a hospitalized inmate must check at the appropriate facility and register for the visit. The Watch Commander will be consulted concerning the inmate’s suitability to have visitors. If the visit is approved, a visit pass will be issued, which can be taken to the hospital and presented to the assigned Deputy or Guard. In addition to normal visiting guidelines, the following rules apply to visits occurring in hospitals:

      • All visits must conform to the hospital’s regular visiting hours and policies
      • Only two visitors are allowed at a hospital visit for the duration of 30 minutes.
      • Two visits per week are allowed, Sunday through Saturday.
      • Inmates cannot receive items of any type from social visitors.
      • Any deviation from the above rules requires Watch Commander approval.


      MEDIA ACCESS TO PERSONS IN CUSTODY

      News media representatives have no greater right of access to detention facilities or inmates, than any other member of the public. A visit by news media personnel shall be considered a social visit, not a professional visit. The Public Affairs/Media Relations office does not process requests for interviews.

      Media representatives seeking an inmate interview should proceed as described below:


      • Visit the “Who’s in Jail” page of the Sheriff’s Department website.
      • Search the inmate’s last and first name.
      • A new page will open if the person is in the custody of the Sheriff’s Dept.
      • Note the facility and housing area location of the inmate. That location will determine which days and times social visiting is permitted. Click “Visit Schedule” immediately under the inmate’s housing location, and you will be taken to the visit schedule for that facility.
      • You may go to the facility and attempt the visit, however you may wish to correspond with the inmate first to be more certain the interview will be accepted by the inmate.
      • To correspond with the inmate, click the “Email this inmate” icon on the inmate’s page in “Who’s in Jail” and follow all the directions to complete the message.
      • If the inmate opts to accept the visit, that visit shall be counted as a social visit for that day, just like any other social visit.
      • With the inmate’s permission, the visit may be tape recorded or videotaped from the public access portion of the visit area.
      • Inmates have two social visits per week. To find out if an inmate has available social visits for the week, please contact the Detentions Information Office of the Detention Facility.
        • George F. Bailey Detention Facility – (619) 661-2620
        • East Mesa Detention Facility – (619) 661-2608
        • Facility Eight Detention Facility – (619) 661-2731
        • South Bay Detention Facility – (619) 691-4810
        • Las Colinas Detention Facility – (619) 258-3176
        • Vista Detention Facility – (760) 940-4473
        • San Diego Central Jail – (619) 615-2700

      When conducting an inmate visit for media purposes, please observe the following:

      • You will generally have 30 minutes with the inmate.
      • While interviewing the inmate, please make sure other inmates are NOT included in the videos or photographs.
      • At most facilities, your interview will be through a visit window. You will not have face-to-face access as is the case with attorneys.
      • Since you are on a social visit, you cannot put a microphone on the inmate. You can just put your microphone on the telephone on the glass window.
      • Once you have scheduled a visit and the inmate has accepted your visit, call the Detention Facility to inform the Watch Commander that you are arriving with TV equipment which will have to be inspected upon your arrival.

      Inmate Marriages in Custody

      Inmates who wish to marry while in the Sheriff’s custody may do so pursuant to a Confidential Marriage License. In order to qualify for this type of license, couples must meet the following requirements, as set by the State of California.

      • The prospective parties must be at least 18 years old. Minors may NOT obtain a confidential marriage license.
      • The parties must be living together as a couple at the time they apply for the marriage license, and must sign an affidavit on the license attesting to those facts.
      • The couple MUST be married in the county where the license is issued.
      • No witnesses are required to be at the ceremony, and no witnesses sign on the marriage license.
      • The marriage license is a confidential record and is registered at the County Clerk’s Office in the county where it was issued.

      If a couple meets these requirements, they can take the following steps to get married while one of them is in custody.

      • The fiancé or fiancée arranges for an Authorized Notary Public to visit the inmate to sign the documents required for the license. The Notary Public will issue the license and collect the County’s fee of $50 plus a service and mileage charge, which usually amounts to an additional $50 to $60.
      • The fiancé or fiancée arranges for the official who will come to the jail and perform the marriage ceremony. The ceremony may be performed by a member of the clergy or by other civil authorities qualified by law. The Authorized Notaries Public listed below are authorized to solemnize the marriage. In most cases, a fee is charged for this service, usually $100 or more.
      • The inmate submits an inmate request to the facility Watch Commander for a special visit on the desired date and time. If the visit is approved, the inmate notifies the fiancé or fiancée, who then makes the arrangements for the ceremony. The visit for a marriage ceremony is generally held during normal visiting hours, and will not be a contact visit unless facility visits are normally contact visits.


      The following are Authorized Notaries Public who are the only Notaries Public that can obtain a Confidential Marriage License. A Confidential Marriage License is required when both applicants cannot appear in person at the County Clerks Office. These Notaries Public can also perform the ceremony or the marriage can be performed by a clergy of your choice.

      Inmate Rules and Grievances

      The San Diego Sheriff’s Department has established rules and regulations that inmates must follow while in custody. During the booking process, all inmates view an orientation video that explains how inmates are expected to behave, as well as what happens when rules are not followed. If an inmate is suspected of violating a rule, a report is written to document the suspected violation and to identify witnesses to the incident. Inmates refer to these Rule Violation Reports (RVR’s) as “write-ups."

      Violations range from very serious, such as assault, to less serious violations such as not following directions. An inmate may be charged with multiple violations arising from a single event. For example, an inmate involved in a fight may receive a Rule Violation Report alleging multiple charges such as fighting, refusal to obey an order to break up the fight, and using abusive language.

      When an inmate is believed to have violated a rule, the following things happen:

      • An investigation is conducted
      • The violation is documented by a deputy
      • A supervisor reviews the report
      • A hearing is held by a supervisor
      • If the supervisor finds that the inmate committed the violation, he or she will determine the appropriate discipline within established policy
      • The inmate may appeal the findings or the level of punishment.

      Discipline may include loss of certain privileges such as telephones, visits, commissary, etc. More serious violations may result in periods of disciplinary lockdown, loss of “good time” credits, or other sanctions. When possible, an attempt is made to match the discipline with the nature of the violation. For example, if an inmate commits a visit-related offense, a temporary suspension of visiting privileges may be imposed. Occasionally an entire housing unit may have discipline imposed, including the loss of telephone privileges or visits. Such sanctions seldom last for more than a few days, but they will affect your ability to visit or speak with the inmate by phone during the disciplinary period.

      INMATE GRIEVANCES

      All inmates in the Sheriff’s Detention system have the right to submit a grievance in regard to almost any aspect of their confinement in the jail system. This means that if inmates feel they are not being treated properly, or if they feel a condition exists that presents a health hazard, they can voice their complaint and receive a response from a Department supervisor. Issues that can be addressed through the grievance process include—but are not limited to—medical care, classification actions, program participation, telephone use, mail distribution, visitation procedures, food, clothing and bedding. Disciplinary action can also be grieved. The Sheriff’s grievance process ensures that problems or concerns confronting inmates will be addressed by jail staff in an appropriate manner. It can also provide inmates with an explanation on those occasions when living conditions are affected necessarily by security requirements.

      To file a grievance, inmates are provided with Inmate Grievance forms within their housing areas, although any writing material may be used. Grievances are generally filed with a sergeant, who must respond to the grievance within ten calendar days, although most responses occur sooner. After consideration by the supervisor, the inmate receives a written response to the grievance. If the sergeant is not able to resolve the issue addressed in the grievance, then the grievance may be directed to a higher ranking officer within the jail. If all lower responses fail to resolve the issue to the inmate’s satisfaction, the Facility Commander may render a final decision regarding the grievance. Each grievance, including its disposition, is logged in jail records for future reference.

      Food Service and Commisary Information

      FOOD SERVICES

      The Sheriff’s Food Services Division provides food services for the San Diego County Jails. At the heart of the operation is a 38,000 square foot centralized food production facility capable of preparing and packaging over 40,000 meals per day. Meals are prepared using a modern “cook-chill” process. They are then distributed to the facilities where they are reheated and served. Inmates are served three nutritionally balanced meals each day.

      The Sheriff’s Department’s Food Services program is considered one of the most progressive in the nation, and has received many awards for its quality and efficiency. In addition to serving the inmates and staff of all seven jails, meals are provided under contract to the Probation Department facilities. This partnership represents a tremendous value for the citizens of San Diego County. The Sheriff’s Food Services Division is operated in accordance with Title 15 of the California Administrative Code, American Correctional Association regulations, and the California Uniform Retail Food Facility Law (CURFFL).


      COMMISSARY

      Inmates may purchase a variety of commissary items to be delivered to them in their housing units. Each inmate receives a copy of the Commissary Order Form and can place orders once each week. The items available for purchase include but are not limited to: snacks, hygiene products, stationery, tennis shoes, reading glasses, phone cards and over-the-counter medication.

      The cost of commissary items is comparable to convenience store prices and is purchased using money from the inmate’s account. Money is maintained on the inmate’s account from cash that they had at the time of arrest and through subsequent deposits from family and friends. Money can be deposited either at the information window or via the mail in the form of cashier’s checks and money orders.

      Inmates may have a maximum of $200.00 on their account at any one time, and may order up to $75.00 in purchases from the commissary on a weekly basis.

      Once a week, inmates with an account balance of less than two dollars will receive a package containing two stamped envelopes, a toothbrush and toothpaste, a pencil, deodorant and soap.

      Medical and Mental Health Services

      MEDICAL SERVICES

      The Sheriff’s Department’s Medical Services Division is a managed health care delivery system with the mission of ensuring the delivery of comprehensive health care services to individuals who are detained in the custody of the Sheriff’s Department; ensuring the provision of emergency, acute, and basic medical/mental health care to all inmates in a timely manner; taking all necessary precautions to prevent the spread of communicable and contagious diseases; and maintaining a stable health status for inmate/patients.

      The Sheriff’s Department employs a partnership of staff and contract health professionals to provide medical and mental health services on-site and off-site. Staff members consist of physicians, psychiatrists, dentists, Registered Nurses, Licensed Vocational Nurses, social workers, recreational and occupational therapists, medical records staff, clerks and administrators. Specialty services such as dialysis, HIV, orthopedic, and OB prenatal care for all pregnant inmates is available on-site. Hospitalization and specialty clinics complete this health care system, which meets community standards

      Registered Nurses medically screen every inmate before they are accepted into the jail system. Screening is done for emergency, acute, and chronic medical and mental health needs.

      Privately provided medications are generally not administered in jail. Medication ordered by jail physicians will be provided through the jail pharmacy. If you want to ensure our Medical staff is aware of an inmate’s medication, you may call the Jail Information line and ask to speak with a member of the Medical staff.

      At the time of admission to the jail, inmates are instructed how to request a sick call visit. Requests to attend sick call are reviewed by a Registered Nurse within 24 hours. Pursuant to Penal Code §4011.2, inmates are charged a co-pay of $3.00 for sick call visits. Emergency care, communicable disease issues, medical provider referrals, and follow-up treatments are not subject to the co-pay. Inmates are never denied medical treatment due to a lack of funds.

      While most routine medical care is provided within the jails, it is occasionally necessary to transport an inmate to a hospital for care. For security reasons, details of the date, time, and location of those transports are not made available. If an inmate is admitted to a hospital, however, visiting may be allowed.

      Sheriff’s Medical Administration may approve private provider appointments after review. All costs for the provider, diagnostic tests, and transportation fees must be pre-paid, and will not be undertaken by the County.

      Private physicians will not be allowed to conduct examinations in the Sheriff’s Detention facilities.

      Medical information will not be given to family or friends due to federal and state privacy laws. The patient may give medical updates to their family and friends. Medical staff accepts medical or mental health information and will follow up with the individual. In order to obtain medical or mental health information, the inmate must sign a “Release of Information” form, designating you, by name and phone number, as the party authorized to receive the information.


      MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

      In addition to the Medical Services offered in the jails, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department offers a comprehensive range of mental health services. Initial psychiatric assessments are conducted to determine the need for such care. Professional nursing and social work staff provide these assessments, schedule follow-up services and advise Classification staff regarding inmate placement or special housing requirements.

      Mental health screening services are provided to the following inmate patients:

      • Inmates who have been identified as having previously received psychiatric service in the community, and who request continuation of services.
      • Inmates who are interested in receiving psychiatric care while in custody without previous psychiatric care in the community.
      • Inmates who, after being assessed by Medical staff, are believed to require psychiatric services while in custody.
      • Patients in crisis are seen immediately and other patients are seen in as timely a fashion as possible, with urgent referrals being made within 24 hours.

      The San Diego Central Jail and the Las Colinas Women’s Detention Facility both have on-site acute mental health facilities known as Psychiatric Security Units (PSU). These facilities serve the needs of the most critical mental health patients and are staffed with multi-disciplinary teams of Psychiatrists, Licensed Mental Health Clinicians, Nurses, Occupational and Recreational Therapists, and Deputy Sheriffs. Services provided in these facilities include:

      • Assessment of immediate psychological and social needs
      • Development of appropriate treatment plans
      • Opportunities for a variety of group therapies including Life Skills Groups, Cognitive Reorganization Groups, and Therapy Groups. Group therapy strives to improve social skills, stress management, effective communications, self-esteem, anger management, and prevention of domestic violence.
      • Participation in due process hearings and the tracking of legal processes related to mental health care
      • Collateral contacts with family, attorneys, and others involved in disposition planning
      • Supportive and crisis counseling
      • Development of appropriate discharge plans
      • Clinical assessments for referrals to outside service providers

      Mental health services are also available to less acute patients. Psychiatric clinic services are available several days per week, and medication may be prescribed. Short term crisis intervention is available, and may be requested by any jail staff member or by the inmate. Discharge planning and case management are available to provide continuity of care upon the inmate’s release to the community.

      Supporting and coping with a loved one who suffers from a brain disorder can be extremely challenging and stressful. You can provide strong and effective support during this important time by doing the following:

      • When contacted by the inmate, stay calm and offer your support.
      • Reassure the inmate of the right to legal representation, and assist in making contact with a lawyer if necessary. Attorneys familiar with mental health issues may be especially helpful.
      • Tell the inmate that a screening will be conducted for mental health issues, and that it is OK to discuss medical and mental health concerns with nursing and mental health staff. It is important that inmates feel safe to speak openly with these professionals.
      • Obtain your friend or relative’s booking number. If you speak with the inmate by phone, ask them to read the booking number printed on their wristband. You may also look up the booking number by checking the “Who’s In Jail” feature on the Sheriff’s Website.
      • If release is unlikely to occur soon, and you are concerned about important information reaching Medical/Mental Health staff, you may call the facility’s Information line and ask to speak to a member of the medical staff.


      You may wish to contact a support group. One such group in San Diego is NAMI-San Diego, an affiliate of the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill. They can be reached at (619) 584-5564 or (800) 523-5933.

      Inmate Programs

      The Sheriff’s Department’s Inmate Services Division seeks to enhance the welfare of County Jail inmates through a number of programs. Programs vary between facilities, and eligibility may be limited to certain security classifications. Inmates may meet with a Correctional Counselor to participate in “prescriptive programming,” a process by which the inmate’s needs are identified, and a plan is established to meet those needs. Programs offered by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department include:

      • Individual and Group Counseling
      • HIV Pre- and Post-test Counseling
      • Religious Services—In partnership with community volunteers, multi-denominational worship services and Bible studies are offered. Inmates may also receive visits from Clergy members.
      • Pro Per Services—Inmates who represent themselves in court proceedings receive support in the form of Law Library access, telephones, supplies, and limited office work (e.g., photocopying)
      • Work Release and County Parole—Opportunities exist for low-risk inmates to meet their legal obligations while continuing to work in the community.
      • CPS Contact Visits—As part of a family reunification program, women inmates may be eligible for contact visits in order to maintain parental relationships with their children.
      • United Through Reading - A workshop is held to discuss the benefits of reading aloud with children. Inmates are then recorded on DVD reading aloud to their child; the book and DVD are sent home to the child. The child is then able to see the parent reading aloud and follow along in the book.
      • Pregnant Inmate Program—Drug treatment and education services are available for female inmates. Pregnancy verification is available.
      • Print Shop—In partnership with the Grossmont High School District, inmates receive valuable vocational training in a print shop located on the grounds of the East Mesa Detention Facility. Students learn printing, engraving, laminating, silk-screening, binding, and computer graphics.
      • Correctional Counselor Programs— Ongoing classes are offered in Parenting, Substance Abuse, Domestic Violence, Anger Management, GED/High School Diploma, Adult Basic Education, and English as a Second Language.
      • Nursery and Landscape Trades—Students receive classroom and practical instruction in planting, landscape maintenance, and the care of landscape tools while gaining experience at the Las Colinas Detention Facility.
      • Building Trades—Students learn basic construction skills, preparing them for employment opportunities after release.
      • Office Occupations Classes—Students at the Las Colinas Detention Facility learn basic computer skills, preparing them for employment in the business community.
      • Clothing Manufacturing Center—Students learn to fabricate and repair clothing, bedding, and other items. The production of jail clothing in this program results in considerable savings to taxpayers.


      VOTING

      Inmates who are registered voters may vote in elections using an absentee ballot. Requests should be directed to a Correctional Counselor, using an inmate request form, up to 60 days before an election.


      COUNTY PAROLE

      County Parole is an early release program intended for low risk offenders. Inmates with extensive criminal histories, violent offenses, sexual offenses, or behavioral problems while in custody are considered poor candidates. Inmates may apply after they are sentenced to local custody, but will not be eligible for parole consideration until they have served half of their sentence. Inmates who wish to apply must notify their facility Correctional Counselor in writing.

      Inmates should have post-release plans in place that they can present to the Parole Board members. These plans include housing, educational or rehabilitative programs, employment, etc. Those granted parole will be supervised and required to abide by all conditions and rules imposed by the County Parole Board.


      EXERCISE AND RECREATION

      Inmates have the opportunity to visit recreation areas at least twice weekly, for a minimum total of three hours. These areas provide space for exercise and recreation not available in their regular housing units. Under normal conditions, inmates are provided access to televisions, board games, and playing cards in their housing units.
