Chula Vista City Jail

JailThe Chula Vista Police Department operates its own Type I Jail facility; The Chula Vista City Jail (CVCJ).

The 8,850 square foot, state of the art, 48 bed, 13 cell facility was completed in 2004 at a cost of $3,100,000.00.

In 2004 CVCJ operated as a Temporary Holding Facility. At that time prisoners were held only long enough to arrange transport to County Jail or Las Colinas Women's Detention Facility (24 hours or less).

In September of 2005, the facility started operations as a Type I Jail, holding local inmates up to 96 hours for court pre-arraignment.

From December 2006 through October of 2010 CVCJ held local pre-arraignment inmates up to 96 hours, as well as contract State inmates for up to 60 days who wished to participate in the In Custody Drug Treatment Program (ICDTP). This program ended in June of 2011.

In October of 2010 CVCJ entered into a contract to house male United States Marshals Service (USM) inmates. After ICDTP ended the additional space allowed CVCJ to increase the USM population to 36.
In July of 2011, the USM population transitioned from male to female.
