The vehicle impound release fee is $278 (CASH ONLY) as of July 1, 2023. Contact the towing company for the towing and storage fee. Vehicle and property releases can be made only to the registered owner. Registered owners unable to appear in person must provide a notarized letter giving permission for you to retrieve the vehicle on their behalf. Call (805) 773-7024 for more information. If the vehicle is placed on a hold, you may schedule an in-person early release hearing with the on duty Watch Commander. This is not a guarantee that the vehicle will be released early. All vehicles must have a current registration at time of release.
