Bail Bond From Jail

People who are arrested are only held at this facility until they are released on their own recognizance, (known as an “O.R.” release), post bail or are taken to court for their arraignment

 He must remain in jail, either because he cannot post bail or because he has been convicted.  

They will generally be transferred to a larger Los Angeles County jail such as the Los Angeles Twin Towers Jail, the Pitchess Detention Center, or the Los Angeles Men’s Central Jail. Generally, female defendants will be transferred to the Century Regional Detention Facility.

  After being released from jail, bail guarantees that the defendant will appear in court. A family member, friend, and anyone else can pay (or “post”) bail on an inmate’s behalf. If someone chooses to post bail for an inmate, the Van Nuys Jail accepts four forms of bail: cash bail, cashier’s checks, money orders, and bail bonds, many of which are discussed in detail in our article “How to Post Bail in California“.

Pay bail directly at the Van Nuys Police Station (where the jail is located) 24 hours a day. 

Van Nuys Police Station is located at 6420 Sylmar Avenue Van Nuys, CA 91401 (818) 374-9645
