Bailing someone out of jail isn’t all that complicated, and one of the best things you can to when someone you know has been arrested is to contact a bail bondsman to get the bail bond process started immediately. The amount of time it takes to bail someone out can depend on a variety of factors, and sometimes varies from jail to jail. If you would like to know how to bail someone out of Van Nuys jail, then read on.
When someone is arrested and taken into custody in the San Fernando Valley area, they will either be taken to the local police/sheriff’s station or the Van Nuys jail. When taken to the Van Nuys jail, inmates will go through the booking and processing procedure and likely remain at that location until they go to court. After their first court appearance, inmates will be taken to Central Processing where it will be decided which county jail they will be sent to.
If it is decided that the defendant will be transferred to one of the other Los Angeles County jails, the process can take a few days to complete. During the transfer process from Van Nuys jail, inmates will be ineligible for bail until the transfer is complete. To avoid the lengthy transfer process, and therefore minimize the amount of time a defendant spends in jail, it’s usually best to try and bail someone out while they are still located at the Van Nuys jail.
