Carson Jail is located in Carson, CA and also serves the cities of Gardena, Rancho Dominguez, Torrance, and Harbor City. Carson Jail holds people who have been arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Processing an inmate includes a search, fingerprinting, and photographing, which can take up to 5 hours. Carson Jail can only hold a few people at a time, with overflow going to the Men’s Central Jail or Women’s Lynwood Jail in downtown Los Angeles. After an inmate’s arraignment, they will also be transferred to the Central Jail or Lynwood jail to be held.
A bail bond can help get an inmate out of Carson Jail quickly. The process typically takes as little as an hour for the inmate to be released. If the inmate is transferred to either the Men’s Central Jail or Women’s Lynwood jail in downtown Los Angeles, the bail bond process can take much longer, up to 24 hours before the inmate is released. It is much easier and much more efficient to bail an inmate out of the Carson Jail before they are transferred to a larger facility. The average bail for an inmate at Carson Jail is $20,000. A bail bond can be posted after an individual acting on behalf of the inmate pays from 10-15% of the bail as a non-refundable fee to a bail bondsman.
