The courthouse that all La Mesa arrests go to is the El Cajon courthouse, a city that is literally right next to the city of La Mesa. The El Cajon courthouse is a large structure that holds both the public defenders office and the district attorneys office. It also has a holding jail on the bottom floor that is used for what is called “video arraignment”.

If someone is arrested in La Mesa, they generally go to Department 2 if it is a felony or Department 3 if it is a misdemeanor.
