Chula Vista City Jail
Chula Vista Police Department operates its own City Jail, currently
the only city in the county to do so.
This 48-bed Type I facility generally houses arrestees until their court arraignment. Additionally, Female United States Marshal Service (USM) inmates are housed here. Staff members include the Jail Commander, Police Service Officers, and Senior Office Specialist.
Housing arrestees at this facility keeps officers on patrol, instead of removing them from service for transport to County detention facilities. The on-site jail also gives investigators immediate access to arrestees. Housing USM inmates provides needed bed space for the Federal Government, while providing revenue to the City to offset the cost of the facility.
