Porter Ranch Police Station and Jail Information
LAPD officers working out of the Devonshire Community Police Station are responsible for patrolling Porter Ranch. When someone is arrested there, they are taken immediately to the police station to undergo booking and processing. Due to the fact that officers from the Devonshire Community Police Station patrol several surrounding areas, the booking and processing process can take several hours. It all depends on how busy the jail is at the time. Once the process is complete, bail will be set for those who are eligible and it will be possible to obtain their release via bail bond.
If the jail is busy and becomes overcrowded, or if the inmate remains at the Devonshire Community Police Station for longer than 72-hours, they will likely be transferred to a larger, long-term holding facility. Men are sent to the Twin Towers Jail and women are sent to the Lynwood Jail. Upon transfer, it will be impossible to bail the inmate out for a period of 12 to 24 hours while they go through another round of processing at the new location. Fortunately, transfer can often be avoided entirely when the bail bond process is begun while the inmate is still located at the Devonshire Community Police Station.
Options for Release
Bail bonds aren’t the only way to get someone out of jail. There are other options for release available that an inmate may be eligible for.
- Own Recognizance – Otherwise known as O.R., own recognizance refers to the release of an inmate after they sign a written agreement to appear before the court at the appointed date and time
- Property Bond – This is where, instead of putting up money to secure the release of an inmate, a person puts up a piece of property instead. If the inmate meets their court obligations, the property rights remain in the hands of the owner. If they do not, the property will be forfeited to the court.
- Cash Bonds – An individual can pay the full amount of bail, in cash, to the court clerk in order to get an inmate released from bail. Like property bonds, if the inmate meets their court obligations, the money is returned (less any relevant fees and costs). If not, then the money is forfeited to the court.
- Citation Release – This last option is typically reserved for minor infractions and traffic violations. The inmate simply makes a promise to the judge to appear before the court at the appointed date and time, and is allowed to go about his or her business.
