Pay To Stay Jail Program
People who are convicted of a misdemeanor crime and sentenced to jail may serve their time in a city jail instead of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department jail, if authorized by the sentencing judge. For people convicted of certain non-violent crimes, the Burbank Police Department's Pay To Stay Program provides the option of serving those sentences in a relatively small, new, clean and local jail. The cost to serve time in Burbank is $100 per day, with an initial $100 deposit that is applied to the last day of the scheduled time to be served. The participant must show evidence of a recent negative T.B. test and proof of medical insurance.
Registration for the program is daily from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. At that meeting, a schedule will be developed for the amount of jail time that is specified by the court. Depending on the participant's schedule, days can be served on either weekends or weekdays. Contact 1-818-238-3010 for more information.
