LASD Inmate Information
The South Facility of Pitchess offers an Education-Based Incarceration program developed by Sheriff Baca. It provides a wide variety of educational opportunities to all inmates. PDC South Facility, offers these programs under this EBI umbrella. Included are: MERIT, 5 Keys Charter High School, Coastline Community College, L.A. Works Vocational Training, ABC Program, Malachi Men, Hollywood Impact, and TUMI (The Urban Ministry Institute).
The Inmates live in military style barracks which house approximately 80-90 inmates each. Each barrack has a “count box,” which is a white spray painted box in front where inmates stand for count. On weekends, inmates can receive visits from their family and friends. Counts, meals, phones, T.V. time, and M.E.R.I.T classes continue, but everything else will be put on hold. Also, Chaplains visit so the inmates can practice their religions. There is definitely a “freedom” inmates won’t experience in very many other jails.

All visitors are subject to search while on the premises, and violators of the rules may find themselves barred from visiting, or subject to arrest, depending on the nature of the violation.

The Bail Bond Process at Pitchess Detention Center
When an inmate is bailed out from Pitchess Detention Center, they will not be released directly from the Pitchess Detention Center facility. If they have become recently eligible for bail, we can help to quickly find out the current bail amount, any charges, new court information, etc., so you can begin the bail bond process right away.
You may expect this process to take a while to complete, as males will be transported by bus to Twin Towers Correctional Facility Jail in downtown Los Angeles, and will later be released from that location.
That said, the bail process from Pitchess is probably a lot easier than you think, and it all begins by giving us a phone call and providing the name, birth date, and date and any arrest details of the defendant you want to bail out. If not all of this information is immediately available to you – we can still help assist you through this process.
We will use the information you provide to locate the defendant within the system and verify their eligibility for bail. After that, we have you fill out the short simple, bail bond application forms and indemnitor’s agreement.
Last, we provide you with a receipt and dispatch an agent to the jail to post the bond. Your friend or loved one will be released once they are transported from Pitchess Detention Center, and processed out of the County jail facility.
