Sitting just north of Newport and Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa is one of Orange County’s most attractive cities for families and businesses. To keep up this appearance, the police have worked over the years to combat a rising crime rate. In January of 2021 alone, there were 347 reported crimes, and there were over 4,000 reported crimes in the year 2020. To attack these growing issues, the police act overzealously when arresting suspects, often acting first and asking questions later. If you were in the wrong part of Costa Mesa at the wrong time, you may be put in jail before you even get to say a word in your defense.

If you are arrested in Costa Mesa, you may be taken to one of Orange County’s jails, including the Costa Mesa Police Department (CMPD). CMPD has a 32-bed jail that houses defendants before their trials or prior to release, and it is located at 99 Fair Dr., Costa Mesa, CA 92626. If you need to visit a family member or friend housed at this jail, visiting hours are:
- Monday-Saturday: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
- Sunday: 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
However, if the facility is full or the arresting officers believe an arrestee needs extra security, then that person may be sent to one of Orange County’s other jails, such as the Central Men’s or Central Women’s Jails in Santa Ana.
Within 24 hours, or 48 hours in extreme circumstances, you must have a meeting with a judge to determine bail. This may be done in person or during a video call, during which the judge will determine if you can be released on bail or on your own recognizance (O.R. release). Every judge in California must reference a bail schedule when assigning bail, but the Orange County schedule will vary from other counties’ depending on the crime.
A judge will also look at several other factors when determining if you can be released on bail and how high your bail should be, which include:
- Your flight risk
- The severity of your crime
- If your crime was violent
- Your criminal history
- You standing in your community
