Directory of California Jails

If you are searching for someone who has been arrested for a domestic violence offense such as domestic battery, domestic assault, criminal threats, or violation of a protective order such as an Emergency Protective Order, Stay Away Order, or Domestic Violence Restraining Order, feel free to use the list of Northern California and San Francisco Bay Area County Jail facilities. It is important that you have the full name and date of birth of the person you are searching for when you are connected with a county jail employee.

If you have been given a police report number, that number may assist the Sheriff's Department employee in finding a person who has been booked into the County Jail. Be certain to have a pen and paper ready and ask for any other identifying numbers such as a booking number, jail number, CEN number (criminal event number), PFN (police file number), SF (San Francisco) number, or court number. Record this information because it will expedite further inquiries regarding the person who has been arrested with County Jail staff and future inquiries with the Superior Court. Also be certain to ask the Sheriff's Department employee where the person who has been arrested is housed.
