Escondido, which shares a name with several rivers throughout the Americas, has a proud history. One of the oldest incorporated cities in San Diego, Escondido was founded in 1888 and has a current population of over 140,000 people in 37 square miles of land, but the number of residents is growing. As such, Escondido has its own police department, though it is part of the greater County of San Diego.
Though Escondido ranks lower in crime statistics than San Diego, El Cajon, and National City, it ranks higher than San Marcos, Carlsbad, Encinitas, and Santee. It sees less violent crime than Oceanside and Vista, but more property crime, which includes burglary and larceny.
If a police officer sees you committing an alleged crime, he has the right to arrest you without a warrant and take you to jail. You’ll be taken to the Escondido City Jail and booked, a process that involves jail staff taking your information, including your name, address, and fingerprints, then detaining you in a holding cell. A judge or court officer will determine your bail amount based on your alleged crime, and whether they believe you are a flight risk or not. Then, you become eligible to be bailed out of jail.
The problem? Few people have the thousands of dollars they need to return to their loved ones and begin working on their criminal defense. That’s where Balboa Bail Bonds can help. We offer flexible, fast, and affordable bail bonds arrangements. Call (619) 760-2222 to talk to an experienced bail bondsman and take control of your future.
Escondido’s medium-security city jail is located on the site of the police & fire headquarters at 1163 North Centre City Parkway, Escondido, CA 92026. The facility provides operational and administrative space for short-term custody of prisoners. If you do not post bail within 24-48 hours, it is likely you will be transferred to South Bay Detention Facility, 500 3rd Avenue in Chula Vista, CA 91910, which is run by San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
The North County Regional Center on 325 S. Melrose Drive, Vista, CA 92081 is Escondido’s closest courthouse. However, South Bay Detention Facility also has its own courthouse above the jail. It handles civil matters, criminal cases, family law, juvenile offenses, and traffic violations. The North County courthouse is 20 minutes away from downtown Escondido, a straight shot northwest on Ronald Packard Parkway to South Melrose Avenue to County Complex Way.
