Culver City Police Station and Jail Information
Immediately after arrest, an arrestee is taken to the Culver City Police Station where he or she will undergo booking and processing. Only after an individual has been booked and process will they be eligible for bail, and it can take anywhere from 2-4 hours for the process to be complete; it all depends on how busy the jail is.
The jail at the Culver City Station isn’t very big, so if an inmate that is eligible for bail does not receive a bail bond quickly, he or she will likely be transferred to a larger jail in downtown Los Angeles. Men are typically transferred to Twin Towers Correctional Facility and women to the Van Nuys Jail.
If this transfer occurs, the inmate in question may expect to spend an additional 24 hours, at least, in police custody as they will have to go through processing all over again at the larger jail. Beginning the bail bond application process as soon as possible can often avoid the transfer altogether.
How Does Bail Work?
Odds are, most people have heard of bail bonds before. Surprisingly few, however, are familiar with how bail works and what it means to be released via bail bond.
When bail is set for an inmate, it’s basically the court saying “we will release this person from police custody and allow him (or her) to meet their court obligations on their own. However, if said inmate does not appear for their court date(s), we require that this amount of money be paid to the court.” Bail works because the vast majority of defendants would prefer to attend their court date(s) than pay the court what could be tens of thousands of dollars, if not more, and risk additional charges for failing to appear.
Is a Bail Bondsman Necessary?
In short, no, it is not required that a bail bondsman be involved in order to bail someone out of jail. Anyone can bail a friend or loved one out of jail by walking up to the clerk, paying the full amount of bail, and securing the inmate’s release. Thing is, the full amount of bail can be very expensive, and most people don’t have that kind of cash laying around.
A bail bondsman only requires a fraction of the total bail amount as a fee to get someone out of jail. The fee to the bail bondsman is non-refundable; it’s the cost of utilizing the bail bondsman’s service. Also, if the defendant does not appear for his or her court date(s), the indemnitor of the bail bond will be liable for the full amount of bail in its entirety. As such, you should only ever bail out individuals that you know and trust completely to meet their obligations with the court.
