The Ventura County Sheriff is responsible for the safety and care of inmates who are awaiting or currently going through trial. When a suspect is arrested, the individual is brought to either the Ventura Police DepartmentOxnard Police Department, or directly to the Ventura County Jail for booking. The process consists of fingerprinting, photographing, and classifying the inmate based on the crime. Inmate classification typically takes anywhere from 4-6 hours to complete. Operations are conducted 24-hours a day all year long.  For Ventura County Detention Center inmate information regarding bail bonds, please call us at 805-683-1515.
