Do an Inmate Search
The booking process and procedures can be time-consuming. Before you can do anything, you will need to know that the person is booked at Waltham City Jail. You can easily search for an inmate in Waltham by using the online database lookup tool, here.

Write down all information such as booking #, permanent ID #, and the police county ID as you will need it later.
Bail and Bonding
Because the Waltham City Jail is the first housing facility for those arrested, many offenders will be bailed out of jail within the first few days.
If you wish to bail someone out of jail, you will need to know the bail amount as well as contact the jail to find out further information on bailing an inmate out of jail.
Sending mail to an inmate who has been incarcerated is still one of the best ways to stay in contact. To send mail to an inmate, you will want to use the following example:
Inmate full name and ID#
175 Forest Street, Waltham, MA, 02452
Inmates are able to make collect phone calls to friends and family. However, collect calls cannot be made to cell phones. So, Waltham City Jail partners with Connect Network to make talking to inmates easier for friends and family.
By using Connect Network, you can set up a prepaid account so inmates can call you without collect charges. You can set up an account online, or you can call 800-483-8314.
If an inmate is staying for a longer period of time at the Waltham City Jail, you will be able to schedule visits to see them. You must be 18 or older with a valid form of ID.
If you would like to schedule a visit with an inmate, you can click here or call 781-891-2201. Keep in mind that visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance, but you can not schedule more than 7-days in advance.
Please keep in mind that visitation and phone calls are privileges and occasionally an inmate will not be permitted to have these privileges due to disciplinary procedures.
