Monrovia Jail

The City of Monrovia’s Police Department maintains a jail facility right next door to City Hall. This jail operates around the clock, every day of the year. The police staff working at the facility handle all ongoing responsibilities, from fingerprinting to prisoner monitoring. Like the jails in most towns and small cities, the Monrovia Jail is a Type I facility. Facilities of this type don’t keep prisoners in custody for lengthy periods. Instead, after a maximum of 96 hours passes, a person booked into the jail receives a transfer to a larger county jail. Most prisoners in Monrovia remain in local custody for no more than 72 hours after booking. Any overcrowding of the facility can lead to a much speedier or even immediate transfer. Since Monrovia is an L.A. County jurisdiction, people transferred from the city facility go to one of the facilities in the county jail system. There are three potential transfer destinations for men: Twin Towers Correctional Facility, Pitchess County Detention Center or Men’s Central Jail. All transferred women go to a single destination, the Century Regional Detention Facility (known widely as Lynwood Jail, but sometimes also called the Los Angeles Century Jail for Women). The huge scale of the L.A. County system can lead to serious delays in obtaining bail. For this reason, it makes sense to make bail arrangements before a transfer from Monrovia occurs. Monrovia Jail is located in the Police Department at 140 E. Lime Avenue. You can contact the Department at (626) 256-8000. Parking is available on the street and in city lots.
