Burbank Jail Closed for Construction

Finding an arrested person is typically a straightforward process. For the most part, all you need to do is find out where the person was arrested, and then head for the closest jail. In rare cases, the person may be taken to the larger Los Angeles County Jail for holding, but that usually warrants extenuating circumstances.

But not in Burbank. People arrested in Burbank, at least for the foreseeable future, will be taking a longer ride in the back of the police car.

The Burbank police station announced it would be closing for renovations due to serious water damage starting on April 11th of 2011, for a period expected to be six months. Well, six months have come and gone, and the remodeling is still continuing. Optimistic views have the project wrapping in early 2012.

For the meantime, any person arrested in Burbank will be taken to the Glendale City Jail on N Isabel Street. The two cities also shared a jail following the Northridge earthquake of 1994.

This change in booking makes Glendale the third busiest jail among Los Angeles County Jails with over 500 inmates booked each month. The facility can hold 96 arrestees at one time, meaning that Glendale bail bonds must be delivered at a fairly consistent rate to prevent overcrowding.
