The Booking and Release process
Knowing what works will help you avoid mistakes
Arrests throughout the city of Los Angeles are made by the Los Angeles Police Department, CHP or the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. In most cases, an arrestee will booked into a local police or sheriff station and housed up to their first court date. In certain instances, an arrestee will be transferred to a larger jail such as the Metro Detention Center (MDC) in downtown Los Angeles, Century Regional Detention Facility, or Twin Towers. Whether a person is arrested for domestic violence, a DUI or for a drug related offense, the booking process may start at one place and finish at another. It is important to consult with a Bail Bonds DIRECT® agent who knows each facility, whether it’s the Inmate Reception Center (IRC) for men or the Century Regional Detention Facility (CRDF) for women, because every facility requires different steps in order to speed up the process for the eventual release.
It is important to note that prior to turning in a bail bond, an arrestee must first be “cleared for bail”. This process involves taking fingerprints (through livescan), sending it electronically to the Department of Justice (DOJ), and receiving a response back that has no additional warrants and/or holds. Once the results are in and the person is cleared, a bond gets turned in and the release process begins.
Once a bail bond is turned in, it can take anywhere from thirty minutes to several hours for release, which strictly depends on the facility and its staff. Release times do vary because certain facilities have bigger workloads and may be under-staffed at any given moment. Also, a medical clearance must be given on an inmate prior to release if he/she is or has claimed to have some sort of a medical condition (this can further delay release). Once out of custody, the defendant would need to complete his/her side of the paperwork and make sure that they show up to all future court dates and abide by all set bail conditions. If you are currently being charged with a felony level offense(s), it is recommended that you seek legal advice prior to your court date and/or potentially hire a Los Angeles Criminal Defense Lawyer as soon as possible.

"I would like to give my sincerest thanks to Jon of Bail Bonds Direct. I've never been in a situation where I needed a service such as this and Jon helped me make a somewhat unbearable evening bearable. My friend was in trouble and I called your service I spoke with Jay at first and he was very kind and gentle. Then I was put in contact with Jon who's demeanor was just as pleasant. Jon walked me thru the entire process, hung out with me at the LAPD 77th division jail until my friend was let go. You've got a great employee on your hands. Once again thank you so much for taking such good care of me." - Ute Schatz, Google Reviewer
