The Somerville City Jail despite the name is not a jail. The Somerville City Jail is just a holding pen for people who have been arrested in the Somerville limits.

Most of the offenders that have been arrested in the Somerville limits will be brought directly to the Middlesex County Detention Center and skip going down to the Somerville City Jail all together.

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