Jail Information

The Glendale City Jail holds individuals who have been arrested and are waiting for an Initial Appearance on either felony or misdemeanor charges. These detainees can be released on bond prior to seeing a judge if their charge carries a preset bond established by a court. The jail is administrated by the Glendale Police Department. While in jail, detainees are treated humanely and are able to make unlimited collect phone calls to advise others of their situation or arrange for bond.

If you know someone who has been arrested, but do not know where they are, you can call the Glendale Police Department at (623) 930-3020 to see if they are in their custody. The Jail is located at 6835 N. 57th Dr. and can be reached 24 hours a day for information on detainees held there.

The Jail does not have provisions for visitation and does not accept money or property for detainees. If detainees are held on a bond from Initial Appearance court that they cannot post, they will be transferred to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) 4th Avenue Jail in Phoenix. They will be held there until their next court appearance in Glendale or until their bond is posted, whichever comes first.
