Transfer Information From Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station
The on-site jail at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station is small, and only designed for the short-term housing of inmates. As such, if an inmate is not bailed out after a period of 48-72 hours (or sooner, if the jail gets overcrowded), they will be transferred to one of two larger facilities. Men are typically sent to Twin Towers Correctional Facility, women are transferred to CRDF – Lynwood Jail.
Twin Towers and Lynwood Jails are much, much larger and busier jail than the one located at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station, and as such, the jail allows for the scheduling of visitations up to 7-days in advance.
