HOW BAIL BONDS WORK IN HUNTINGTON BEACH
When your loved one is arrested in the city of Huntington Beach, he or she will most likely be taken to the Huntington Beach Police Department, which is located at 2000 Main St, Huntington Beach, CA 92648. Once the defendant arrives at the police department, he or she will then be put through the booking process, which could take anywhere from thirty minutes to a few hours depending on how busy the jail is at that time.
The first step in the booking process will be the jailer inputting all of the defendant’s personal information into the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Database. The reason that the jailer must put this information into the system is so that if the defendant were to commit another crime, the police would know about this arrest. After all of that is done, the jailer will then send the inmate to have his or her fingerprints scanned. This process may take the longest in the entire booking process and could take up to a few hours to complete. The way it works is through a machine called LiveScan, which is directly connected to the Department of Justice.
The machine will send the fingerprints of the inmate to the Department of Justice, and they will run them through their databases to make sure that the inmate does not have any outstanding warrants anywhere. The Department of Justice will then send the results back to the jailer at the Huntington Beach Police Department. Once the jailer receives the results back, he or she will determine whether the inmate is cleared for bail or not. During this entire process, our agent at Bail Bonds Huntington Beach will contact the jail to determine all of the bail information and will constantly get updates on the inmate so that he or she knows when the inmate is cleared for bail.
Our agent will then set up a time and place for you two to meet so that you could fill out all of the necessary paperwork needed for the bail bond. When all of the necessary paperwork has been filled out and the inmate is cleared for bail, our agent will immediately post the bond into the jail in order to complete the bail bond process. The jailer will then verify that all of the information is correct in the paperwork and will proceed to release the inmate into your custody. Once the inmate is out of jail, our agent at Huntington Beach Bail Bonds will explain to the defendant all of his or her responsibilities regarding the bail bond.
Our agent will then hand one of you an official bail bonds receipt, which will contain all of the defendant’s charges and court information. It is very important that the defendant shows up to all of his or her court dates on time or the court will issue a bench warrant and have the defendant arrested again.
