General Information for Pomona Jail

Pomona Jail is a relatively small detention center that also serves as the main police station for the city. It is designed to be a temporary holding facility; this means that inmates will not be kept at Pomona Jail for long. Within a few hours of being booked, an inmate must either post bail or be transferred to a larger facility within Los Angeles County. Men will be transferred to Los Angeles Twin Towers Jail, the Pitchess Detention Center, or the Los Angeles Men’s Central Jail. Women will be transferred to the Century Regional Detention Facility. Since the process of posting bail is much more complicated at larger facilities, it is best that we help you or your loved one while still in Pomona Jail.

Pomona Jail and Police Station is located at 490 West Mission Boulevard. The main line for the jail is (909) 620-2131. Free parking is located on the west side of the building, accessible via Park Avenue. While the jail is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, not all services are available at all hours; however, we can post bail and get you or your loved one out of custody at any time of day.

Posting Bail at Pomona Jail

Los Angeles County has two bail schedules that are used to determine the amount of bail an inmate must post before being released. The first bail schedule is for felonies and the second is for infractions and misdemeanors. These schedules are updated yearly and are publicly available online. The bail amount should match the crime for which the inmate was arrested; if you feel there are discrepancies, Herbert Bail Bonds can still get you or your loved one released, but it is important that you then speak with a criminal defense lawyer.

Bail is essentially a monetary promise to the corrections department that the defendant will show up to all court appearances after being released. Pomona Jail accepts two forms of bail: cash and bail bonds. Bail must be posted directly at Pomona Police Station and can be done at any time of the day or night.

In order to post cash bail, you must post the full amount, which can be difficult even for lower bails, especially when you are trying to get an inmate out of custody after banks are closed. And as bail goes up, it becomes even more difficult. Cashier’s checks and other forms of payment are not accepted as alternatives to cash bail.

Between the two accepted forms of payment, bail bonds are much more accessible. With this method, you only need 10% of the bail amount. So, if bail were set at $5,000, you would only need to pay $500 to Herbert Bail Bonds and we would cover the rest.

With cash bail, the full amount will be returned to you once the defendant attends all court dates; if the defendant does not attend all court dates, the money is kept by the court. With bail bonds, the 10% is kept by the bail bondsman, and as long as the defendant makes all court appearances, you never need to pay any more. However, should the defendant not show, you will be responsible for paying the full amount of bail to the bail bondsman.

Getting Inmate Information at Pomona Jail

However, before you post bail—no matter which type of payment you choose—you will want to make certain that the inmate is in custody at Pomona Jail. There are a few ways you can do this. First, if you are working with Herbert Bail Bonds, you can give us the information we need and we will handle all the checking for you. However, if you want to check on your own, you can call the L.A. Sheriff’s Department Inmate Information line at (213) 473-6080, call Pomona Jail directly at (909) 620-2131, or consult the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Inmate Information website. Out of those three options, calling the jail directly will get you the most accurate information, as the other two may not be updated until after an inmate has already been transferred to a larger holding facility.

Contacting Pomona Jail Inmates

Inmates at Pomona Jail are not allowed to receive incoming calls. Upon being booked, they are allowed a maximum of three free local calls, and after that they must call collect. As a result, the easiest way to communicate with an inmate at Pomona Jail is to visit them in person during visiting hours, which are from 10 to 2:45 each day. Visitors are only allowed during the first 24 hours in the facility, or prior to arraignment—whichever comes first. However, these visitor hours do not apply to other actions, such as posting bail, which we can do for you 24 hours a day.
