    Being incarcerated is never a good experience, especially for people who have not been arrested before (the vast majority of our clients). But at 888 Bail Bond, we are less interested in how they came to be in jail and more interested in how we can help get them out. If you would like to learn more about how bail can be posted at the Sacramento Main Jail, please call us at: 916-489-2245 or toll free at 888-224-5266.

    It can happen to anyone: A mistake is made or a crime committed, and then, before you know it, the person responsible is taken to jail.

    The Sacramento Main Jail is the place most arrestees go to first in this County.It is run by the Sheriff’s Department and their deputies book defendants into the system and then disperse them to other local jails. But whether someone is being held at the Sacramento County Main jail, or Rio Cosumnes jail, you will want to deal with a competent, experienced bail bond company that knows how to get them out of there quickly.

    At a fairly large facility like the Sacramento Main Jail, release time can take anywhere from 2-8 hours, depending on how busy the jail is and on what day the defendant was arrested.

    At 888 Bail Bond, we can provide you with a free estimate of how much time this process will take. We can also find out the defendant’s charges and then we can bail them out for you.

    We are open 24 hours a day, so please feel free to call our bail bond company locally at 916-489-2245 or toll free at 888-224-5266 for bail bond help anywhere in the state of California.


    The Sacramento Main Jail is run by the County Sheriff’s Department. It is divided into two east-west divisions, with three sets of pods per side that house the prisoners. Each pod has two levels and a day room which inmates are allowed to use in shifts. This jail houses also every type of inmate, from maximum to minimum security risks, male and female.

    Some individuals are already serving sentences while others are merely detained here until their court dates. For those arrestees who qualify, bail may be posted at the SMJ twenty four hours a day.

    The Sacramento Main Jail also has a separate Correctional Health Division that takes care of the health needs, both mentally and physically, of every incarcerated adult that passes through their doors. Dental and ancillary services (like therapy and eye care) are also included.

    Many of the inmates are employed by the jail, which offers a special prison industries work program. The program provides skill training for inmates for various types of jobs and simultaneously employs them to produce a wide variety of products for government agencies and non-profit groups.

    When arrestees are taken to the SMJ they are interviewed, and if inebriated, given a breath, urine, or chemical blood test. After booking, they undergo what is known as the intake process.

    This procedure takes from four to six hours and it is comprised of a medical screening and a classification interview in which their custody level is determined. The jail staff considers the inmate’s level of violence, criminal history, previous escapes, and any institutional behavior problems.

    In a sophisticated process, inmates of similar custody levels then housed together to minimize the any conflict between them. The bail bond industry is becoming more sophisticated every day, too.
