Join The Oxnard Police Department
Accelerated Booking/Jail Services
The Oxnard Police Detention Facility, commonly referred to as the “Oxnard Jail,” is where the majority
of persons arrested by Oxnard officers are transported for booking from the field. The facility is comprised of
eight holding cells, two interview rooms and a booking area. Each holding cell is equipped with a wash basin and toilet.
The entire area is under recorded video and audio surveillance and is staffed by civilian Police Service Officers
(PSO’s). Once officers complete initial booking paperwork on persons taken into custody, PSO’s
assume custody of the arrestee and complete the booking process that includes photographs, fingerprints, and release or transfer transportation.
Arrestees that are not released from the Oxnard Detention Facility by way of citation, own recognizance (O.R.) or
bail are transported by PSOs to the Ventura County Pre-Trial Detention Facility (also known as the Ventura
County “Main Jail”).
Since Oxnard does not provide food or sleeping facilities, arrestees are housed at Oxnard for a limited amount of time.
