Visiting an Inmate in the San Diego County Bailey Det Ctr in California

In order to visit an inmate at the Bailey Detention Center, you must make a reservation beforehand. Reservations can be made online or by telephone. If you wish to make a reservation online, you must look up the inmate at the Who's In Jail page at the Sheriff's Department website located at this link (http://apps.sdsheriff.net/wij/wij.aspx). Lookup the inmate of your interest, and there is a link in the inmate's profile to schedule a reservation.

Reservations are taken 24 hours a day online every Tuesday through Sunday, as the website is unavailable on Mondays. Reservations made by telephone must be made every Tuesday through Sunday from 10 AM to 2 PM PST. To make a reservation, call the detention center at (760) 210-0386. Same day visit are permitted, depending on an inmate's work schedule, availability, and the status of an inmate's privileges.

Much like every detention facility in San Diego, they have their own visiting schedule based on the jail's housing arrangements. A schedule on when visits can be permitted is located at http://www.sdsheriff.net/detentionfacilities/visit_gbdf.html. There are also many rules on visiting an inmate. The George Bailey Detention Center does not allow contact visits, and visits are through a glass window with a telephone handset provided by the jail. Visits are limited to 30 minutes per session, and an inmate is allowed two social visits a week, and only one a day.

Anyone visiting an inmate must check in at least one hour before the scheduled visit. Only those who made a reservation to visit an inmate can be at the visit. In order to get in, a visitor must have a valid photo ID on them to verify their identity. This includes, but is not limited to, a driver's license, passport, school ID, or a visa. A maximum of three visitors can be present at one time, and all minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

More rules and guidelines can be viewed at http://www.sdsheriff.net/jailinfo/visiting.html. Visitations are encouraged by the San Diego Sheriff's Department, but they are also a privilege, not a right.

How to use the Inmate Search for San Diego County Bailey Det Ctr in California

The George F. Bailey Detention Center is located right near the barren deserts of San Diego. It currently has 1,888 beds, and a revolving door of inmates in for various crimes. It is also the largest detention facility in San Diego. If you have a family member or friend currently locked up in this facility, or if you want to know if they are in any detention facility in San Diego, looking them up is simple, and only requires a few very simple steps.

First, go to their website at http://www.sdsheriff.net/detentionfacilities/gbdf.html, and go to the "Who's In Jail" link at the far right hand side of the screen. Click on that link, and you will e prompted to enter the first and last name of an inmate. Exact spelling is not required. What is required, however, are the first two letters of an inmate's last name and the first letter of an inmate's first name. For example, if you wanted to look up a woman named Donna Mae, you would have to type in "D" for the first name, and "Ma" for the last name. Or if you want, you can type in the full name. Afterwards, you should click on the Lookup button or the Reset button if you had made a mistake in typing the name, in which case you just type the name in again but correctly.

After you hit the Lookup button, you will be taken to a CAPTCHA screen. CAPTCHA screens are used on many websites to verify that a human is trying to look at the website, and not a computer or a robotic device. This is done to ensure the security of the webpage, so that an inmate's information cannot be used for commercial purposes and that a user cannot be blocked from the webpage. All you have to do on that screen is type in the 5 or 6 green characters in the white box, and then hit Continue. Given you typed in the correct letters, you will be taken to a list of matches. This gives matches for any inmate locked up in any of the San Diego detention facilities, but an inmate's profile will be sure to tell where they are exactly.

An inmate's profile will give you a person's basic vital statistics, such as nationality, date of birth, and other physical characteristics. It also shows where he/she is being held, what they were charged with, and any release or bail information you may need to know. There are also links on the profile page for inmate services, such as emailing the inmate, scheduling a visit with the inmate, and shopping the jail's commissary for goods and services to aid the inmate.

The inmate search module on the Bailey Detention Center website, as well as San Diego County jails as a whole may be a bit vague and intimidating, but it contains enough to know that if you have a loved one currently locked up, they are in the system and they are getting their day in court.

Communicating with an Inmate Housed at the San Diego County Bailey Det Ctr in California

Contact with a family member or loved one during a time of incarceration is very much encouraged, as it makes the period of separation a little easier for those involved. There are rules and limitations, but contact is relatively simple. For one, inmates can receive e-mail messages while they're in custody.

There are guidelines on how to successfully e-mail an inmate at the George Bailey Detention Center. First of all, privacy is not guaranteed, so be careful on what you write in an e-mail. You may send up to two e-mail messages a day in lieu of postcards, but the e-mails can only be up to one page long. Attachments, such as photographs, are not allowed in the e-mail. When prompted to give a return address, be sure to give your home address or any other address you want to use in regards to correspondence with an inmate. An inmate will not be able to send an e-mail, and any returning correspondence will be conducted through the U.S. Postal Service.

How do you look up an inmate's e-mail address? An inmate has no e-mail address, per se, but you can look them up online. Their inmate profile contains a link to send them an e-mail. Just be sure to follow any directions that come up.

You can also write to the inmate the old-fashioned way; through mail. You can send inmates a postcard, given they are rectangular, not altered from their original form, and follow the criteria of the correctional facility. Please visit http://www.sdsheriff.net/jailinfo/mail.html for the precise guidelines of sending an inmate snail mail.

When sending mail to an inmate, be sure to use this heading:

Inmate's Name, # Booking Number
George Bailey Detention Facility
446 Alta Rd. Ste. 5300
San Diego, CA 92158-0002

Inmates also have telephone privileges throughout the day once they are booked. Visit http://www.sdsheriff.net/jailinfo/phones.html for more information about telephone privileges and guidelines. The number for the Bailey Detention Facility is (619) 210-0385.
