If your vehicle has been towed, call 760-931-2119 to find out how to get it released. In some cases, you will need to obtain a vehicle impound release from the Police Department before the tow company can return your car. To obtain this release, the registered or legal owner of the vehicle must come to the Police Department with a valid drivers license or a picture identification and a licensed driver. The Police Department charges a fee to offset costs of the release and will only accept cash. Impound release hours are Monday through Friday (excluding city holidays) from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
If a vehicle does not require a Police Department release, a vehicle may be picked up directly from the towing company.
