The Somerville City Jail is simply a holding pen. Anyone arrested in Somerville city limits will initially be sent to this jail, but they will not typically stay at this jail long-term. Most offenders will be to the Middlesex County Jail after initial processing. For that reason, most services like sending mail and inmate phone calls are more limited than most jails and prisons.
