SONOMA COUNTY DETENTION FACILITY INFORMATION
The Main Adult Detention Facility (MADF) was opened in 1991. It was originally designed to hold almost 500 inmates. However, the facility quickly reached it's housing capacity. An expansion was opened in 1997 to provide an additional 290 beds. The facility is a medium/maximum security facility, which houses both pre-trial and sentenced inmates. The County Sheriff also runs a North Sonoma County Jail, which typically holds sentanced inmates or inmates awaiting trial on a longer-term basis (rather than those recently arrested).
When someone has been arrested in Sonoma County, they will likely be taken first to the Main Adult Detention Facility for booking and processing. The booking process generally includes mug shots (photographs), and fingerprints. Background checks will be conducted on all incoming arrestees. The amount of time it takes for the booking and processing of bail bonds will vary. It's important to realize that we cannot post a bail bond with the jail facility until the defendant is completely booked into their system. However, it is possible to start the process right away by calling a bondsman.
When a bail bond has been posted at the Santa Rosa jail, release can often take anywhere from between 2 to 4 hours or more, depending on the workload of the jail staff and the defendant’s individual case. If the defendant is not bailed out of jail, that he or she will generally have to remain in custody until their matter has been taken care of in court.
If you are planning to visit an inmate at either one of these facilities, it is best to read and adhere to all visiting times, rules, and regulations of the jail. Failing to do so may result in a loss of visiting privileges.
