    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 jail facility stands 230 feet tall, which makes it the tallest construction project ever undertaken by the County of San Diego.

    The Corrections Standards Authority (CSA) rated capacity for SDJC is 944 beds. The average daily population can reach nearly 900 inmates. The San Diego Central Jail opened its doors in May of 1998.

    If you are planning on visiting an inmate at SDCJ, you should adhere to all of the facilities rules and regulations.

    The County Jails, SDCJ for men and Las Colinas for women, service the "pre-trial" jail services (meaning after having been arrested, but before conviction) of nearly every city in San Diego. However, there is overflow at the Vista Jail for both men and women.

    The only city in the county with it's own jail is Chula Vista and we also provide Chula Vista bail bonds.

    At the time of the defendant’s arrest, booking and processing, the bail amount will be set by a judge according to a San Diego County bail schedule.

    The booking process generally consists of a background check, fingerprinting, photographs checking for any previous warrants and finally, processing of the arrestee into the jail’s computer system.

    When you choose to bail someone out of the San Diego Central jail, the defendant should expect to be released within two to six hours or more, depending upon their individual case and circumstances.

    With our company, a bail bond can be posted anytime, night or day at any one of the San Diego County jails. Our licensed bail bondsmen will assist you through this stressful time with patience, and the utmost discretion. Trust us to help you through this.


    A bail bond at the San Diego Central Jail, as well as in all of California will cost 10%. This percentage is mandated by law. The premium paid is a non-refundable percentage of the total amount of the bail.

    For example, should the bail amount be $30,000, your portion will cost $3,000.

    Most clients find using a credit card the easiest way to pay for a bail bond. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. You may also choose to pay in cash. And, if financing a bond is easier, we can work out payment options.

    We realize that not everyone has a perfect credit background, however, most of our customers find it easy to qualify for a “signature bond”.

    With our company very often, no collateral will be required for your bail bond. Collateral is a thing of value which is used to secure debt or ensure payment. Many bail agencies want to have a home to secure your bond.

    We typically write most bail as signature bonds. This means, that the status of the case, along with your good credit history and stability in the community will establish a solid foundation. With all of these factors considered, we may not need collateral.

    If you’re thinking about posting a bail bond for a friend or family member, it’s important to be aware of your responsibilities. By signing the bail bond agreement, you are obligating yourself to be responsible for paying the entire amount of the bail, should the defendant fail to appear in court and/or cannot be located.
