Covina Police Department/ Covina Jail

The Covina Jail is a Type I jail capable of housing a maximum of 20 prisoners.  When an officer makes an arrest, the person arrested is brought to the Covina Jail for booking, which includes completion of LA County booking paperwork, medical screening, live scan finger printing and photographing.  Prisoners can be held for a maximum of 72 hours before they are transported to court for arraignment.  In some cases, prisoners are transferred to the Los  Angeles County Jail for housing after booking is completed.  The Covina Jail processes approximately 3700 adult arrestees through the jail annually.
