Unfortunately, with the holding pen in the San Jose City Jail is quite small. So, offenders will only be in this small holding pen for hours, if that. Most of the offenders that have been arrested in the San Jose limits will be brought directly to the Santa Clara County Detention Center and skip going down to the San Jose City Jail all together.

Keep in mind that the San Jose Police Department will also manage this smallholding pen as well.
