The Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center is located in Devore, California, just outside of San Bernardino. Situated on nine acres, the facility houses both male and female inmates serving county jail sentences. Currently, the facility can house 1,446 prisoners and maintains an average daily population of approximately 800 male and female inmates. Plans are in development to remodel two existing dormitory housing units that will increase the housing capabilities by more than five hundred prisoners.
The male inmate facility originally opened in 1960 as a work camp and had a maximum housing capacity of 100 inmates. Currently, the male facility is capable of housing up to 1,120 male prisoners and maintains an average of 550 male inmates, per day. The female facility opened in 1988 and currently has the capacity to house 326 inmates. There are, on average, 250 female prisoners at the Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center.
The Glen Helen facility serves as the base for the Inmate Services Unit for the entire San Bernardino County. ISU provides oversight to teachers, counselors, chaplains, Sheriff's staff, and volunteers who proved court-ordered and voluntary academic, vocational, and cognitive classes, twelve-step programs, crisis counseling and religious services to inmates at the county's four primary custody facilities and five outlying jails.
The Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center is also home to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's and Fire Department pilot program to train inmates to work as firefighters. The county opened an 8-acre inmate fire camp, which is the first county-operated fire camp in the state. In November of 2015, a 13-member female fire crew graduated from the fire camp after completing nearly five months of training. This female crew was the first of its kind in the state.

Bail at the Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center
Bail is an amount of money that the court will accept as an assurance that you will appear for hearings and court proceedings, if they allow you to leave jail prior to your trial. The amount of bail that is required will vary depending on the charges. The bail schedule is set in for each county and should be posted at the Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center where you can find out how much bail you will need to post.
To figure out how much bail you will need:
- First, find the charge that carries the highest potential jail time and fines.
- Use that charge to determine the basis of the bail.
- Now find any “enhancements” or additional charges and the bail that applies to those enhancements.
- Add all of that together to find the total amount of bail that will be required.
