The Santa Clarita Sheriff Station and jail is the central hub for all law enforcement in the Santa Clarita Valley. The over 200 sworn-officers who work out of the station are responsible for patrolling the areas of: Bouquet Canyon, Canyon Country, Castaic, the City of Santa Clarita, Gorman, Hasley Canyon, Newhall, Neenach, Sand Canyon, Saugus, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Sleepy Valley, Southern Oaks, Stevenson Ranch, Sunset Point, Tesoro Del Valle, Valencia, Val Verde, West Hills, Westridge, and some areas of the Angeles National Forest.
The Booking Process in Santa Clarita
During booking and processing, the arrestee will have their photograph (mug shot) taken, fingerprints recorded and a comprehensive national background check will be conducted, called LiveScan. Once complete, bail (if allowed) will be set and it will be possible to obtain release via bail bond. The entire process can take anywhere from 4 or more hours, depending on how busy the Sheriff station staff is at the time of the defendant’s arrest.
The Santa Clarita station jail consists of 11 jail cells with space for about 40 inmates. If the jail begins to get overcrowded, or if the inmate is unable to obtain a bail bond within 72-hours, it is likely that he or she will be transferred to one of L.A County’s larger jails. Men will be transported to Twin Towers Correctional Facility and women will be transferred to the Century Regional Detention Facility / Lynwood Jail.
We always suggest bailing the defendant out of the smaller Santa Clarita jail as being transferred can add up to 24 hours or more to their time in custody.

When an inmate is transferred to one of these larger facilities, they will need to be processed in, which can take anywhere from 12 to 24-hours. During this time, the inmate will be unable to be bailed out of jail. It’s often possible to avoid the transfer process altogether by beginning the bail bond process while the inmate is still located at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station jail.
