Beverly Hills Jail

The Beverly Hills Jail is located in Beverly Hills, California about 12 miles west of downtown Los Angeles. This facility is operated by the Beverly Hills Police Department, and it houses adult male and female inmates who have been arrested by Beverly Hills city law enforcement. 

Inmates are held at the Beverly Hills City Jail after they are arrested for crimes ranging from violations to misdemeanors to felonies. The Beverly Hills jail is not a typical county detention facility. Instead, it is a short-term facility that serves as a booking station and temporary holding facility for individuals who are arrested in the city of Beverly Hills. 

Most inmates at this jail are only held for a few days until they post bail, are released on an OR bond, or are transferred after their arraignment. 

If the arrestee doesn't make bail before his/her first court appearance, male inmates will be transferred to a county jail, such as the Los Angeles Men’s Central Jail, the Los Angeles Twin Towers Correctional Facility, or the Pitchess Detention Center (also known as Wayside) immediately following the court hearing. 

Female inmates will be transferred to the Century Regional Detention Facility (also known as Lynwood). To find out if your loved one is being held at the Beverly Hills Jail, click here for an inmate roster.

The jail also houses men and women who receive court approval for the “Pay to Stay” program, which is set up to accommodate those convicted of lower risk (non-violent) misdemeanor and felony crimes. According to the BHPD, the jail is a “safe, clean, and secure environment.”

Posting Bond

The purpose of a bond is to make sure that an arrested person will appear at their scheduled court date when they are released from jail. Judges usually determine the amount of bond, while the sheriff determines the sufficiency of the bond. If a person is arrested with a warrant, it will generally have the bond amount listed. 

Most criminal detainees are eligible for temporary release from incarceration through the payment of a bail bond. 

Cash Bond: The person who is arrested (or someone acting on their behalf) may post the entire bond amount in cash, which will be held by the sheriff or the court pending disposition of the criminal case. The BHPD accepts cash bail payment at their offices seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Surety Bond: Secure release from jail through a professional licensed bail bonding company, aka a “surety bond.” The bonding company will charge non-refundable fees that are not applied to any fines, costs, or restitution that may later be ordered by the court. 

OR Bond: Releasing someone on their “own recognizance” is simply a promise to re-appear at a later date for further judicial proceedings. These are usually used for minor offenses.

How to Call an Inmate

Detainees at the Beverly Hills City Jail cannot receive incoming phone calls. However, they can make outgoing collect calls from the housing area. They may call out either by calling collect, having an account through the inmate phone company, or by purchasing calling cards off of commissary.

According to the laws of California, all incoming jail detainees are given the opportunity to make at least three local phone calls, free of charge. These calls allow arrestees to tell their friends or family members about their arrest and/or to seek help from a criminal lawyer.

How to Send Money

Deposits to inmate accounts can be made in the jail lobby. For more information about sending money to an inmate at the Beverly Hills Jail, call the facility directly.

Programs For Inmates

Pay to Stay

The Beverly Hills Jail Pay to Stay program provides an alternative to serving a jail sentence in a county facility. Approved individuals who choose to pay the fee of $110 per day are allowed to stay in a private cell and remain segregated from the “general population” detainees. 

Pay to Stay inmates share common areas with other Pay to Stay inmates only, including a “day room” and bathroom/shower facilities.The program allows inmates to serve their time in a few different ways. With permission from a judge, the options are:

  • Straight Time – Serving the entire sentence on consecutive days
  • Weekend Time – Serving a sentence on weekends only (until the entire sentence has been served)
  • Work Furlough – Working weekdays are spent outside the facility and the sentence is served during nighttime hours only

A day of “time served” is equivalent to 24 hours in custody. Pay-to-Stay inmates are not in the lap of luxury when they are doing time. There is no gym at the facility and smoking is not permitted anywhere on the premises. 

Cell phones, laptops, and telecommunication devices are banned, and residents may be assigned work duties. 

Inmates are permitted to bring in preferred food as long as it is pre-packaged and sealed. Other allowed items include $50 cash, basic toiletries, clothes/shoes, an inexpensive watch, reading material, glasses/lenses, and a pillow, blankets and/or sleeping bag.

Pay to Stay fees are generally paid in advance. However, payment schedules can sometimes be set up for a long sentence.
