When someone has been arrested and taken into custody in Long Beach, CA., you won’t be able to bail them out right away. First, they have to go through the booking and processing procedure at the Long Beach Police Station. Booking and processing is a routine procedure that includes taking the defendant’s photograph, recording their fingerprints and conducting a comprehensive background check to search for additional warrants. The process can take a few hours to complete – especially the background check. The final step of the booking process includes setting bail.
The fastest way to bail out of Long Beach Police Station jail is to begin the bail bond process as soon as your friend or loved one has been arrested. The process includes locating the defendant within the jail system, filling out our short, simple, bail bond application forms, signing the indemnitor’s agreement. Once both booking and the bail bond processes are complete, we can quickly send a bail agent to the jail to post the bond.
A bail bondsman on our staff can post bail at the Long Beach Police Station jail any time of day or night, including weekends and holidays. No matter when your friend or loved one was arrested, we can get them out. When working with the courts, bail can be a lot more expensive, and bail can only be paid during court business hours, which are typically 8:30 am to 5:30 pm M-F, excluding holidays.
Defendants will only remain at the Long Beach Police Station jail for a maximum of 72 hours before they’re transferred to one of Los Angeles’ larger, long-term holding facilities. Additionally, if the jail at the Long Beach Police Station becomes overcrowded, transfers can begin before the 72 hour deadline. Once transferred, inmates will need to spend at least another 12 to 24 hours in custody going through another round of processing. When you begin the bail bond process while the defendant is still located at the Long Beach jail, transfer can usually be avoided altogether.
