SLO SHERIFF DEPARTMENT, PATROL STATIONS & JAIL INFORMATION
The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department has a mission to protect life and property while providing safety, service and security to their community. They collectively reduce crime through community and law enforcement efforts which make neighborhoods safer and improve the quality of life for all of their citizens. They make community outreach a top priority and offer web based programs, displays, DARE and special presentations which are focused on keeping their citizens informed.
When someone has been arrested in San Luis Obispo County, there only has one jail which houses inmates for the entire county. This detention center can house approximately 525 prisoners. It's important to know that the San Luis Obispo jail will not release a defendant unless they have a ride to their destination.
After arrest, the inmate will be booked and processed. This generally means photographs, fingerprints and a nation wide background check will be conducted. This process can take up to 4 hours to complete. California Penal Code §851.5 establishes the right of a person in custody to make at least 3 free local phone calls upon being booked. These include, one to an attorney, one to a bail bondsman, and one to a family member, or friend. We can post a bail bond with this facility 24 hours a day.
If you decide to visit an inmate, please follow the visitation guidelines carefully. All visitors must have valid I.D, and must arrive during correct business hours. All visitors must check in at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled visitation time. It is best to call the jail for all instructions prior to your visit.
The SLO Sheriff’s Patrol Division is responsible for law enforcement in the unincorporated areas of San Luis Obispo County. Patrol personnel are deployed from three stations throughout the County.

USING A BAIL BONDSMAN
Should you choose to use the services of a bail bond company, the cost of the bail bond will be 10% of the total set bail amount. This is the mandated law set forth by the California Department of Insurance. For example, if the bail is $25,000, your cost would be $2,500.
This cost for the bond is non-refundable. The fee you pay the bail bondsman at the time of purchase is earned once the bond is posted with the jail and the defendant has been released from custody.
With our company, there are never any hidden fees, interest or taxes. We realize that setting up a payment plan for the bond can be easier on your families budget; which is why we also offer flexible bail payment arrangements to those who qualify. Contact one of our agents for further information.
