Covina Police Station and Jail Information
The City of Covina’s law enforcement needs are met by the Covina police department, operating out of the local police station which also has its own jail. Both the police station and jail are rather small, with the jail itself only being able to hold about 20 inmates at one time. Typically, when someone is arrested in Covina, they are taken to the police station to undergo booking and processing, and will then be held at the jail for up to 72 hours as they await their arraignment. If an individual is not bailed out or granted another option for release, he or she will likely be transferred to Twin Towers Correctional Facility or the Lynwood Jail.
These larger jails are designed for the long-term housing of inmates and are much, much busier. As a matter of fact, downtown Los Angeles boasts some of the busiest jails in the world! That being said, when an inmate is transferred to one of these facilities, he or she will likely be in custody anywhere from 12 to 24 additional hours as they wait their turn to be “processed in.” Luckily, the Covina police station and jail are open 24 hours, and so are we! Because of these facts, if the bail bond process is begun quickly enough, it’s possible to avoid transfer altogether and get your friend or loved one out of jail quicker.
What is a Bail Bond?
When someone is arrested, they are taken to the police station where their photograph will be taken, fingerprints recorded and a national background check is conducted. After these things are completed, bail will be set for those who are eligible and it will be possible to be released via bail bond, should one be obtained.
When bail is set, it’s basically the court saying that they will require a certain amount of money as “insurance” to ensure that an inmate, once released, will show up for their court date. When bail is originally set, it’s entirely possible for an individual to hand over cash in the full amount of bail and have their friend or loved one released from custody. However, depending on the nature and number of the offense(s) that the individual has been charged with, bail can sometimes be expensive.
A bail bond, then, is an agreement between one individual and a bail bondsman to put up the money for an inmate’s release. If an inmate is bailed out and fulfills all of their court obligations, then nothing further happens (no matter what the outcome of the court proceedings are). However, if they do not show up for court, then the signer of the bail bond (also known as the indemnitor) will be responsible for paying the entire amount of bail to the court. So, only bail out those that you know and trust.
The Bail Bond Process
The bail bond process is pretty short and simple. As a matter of fact, it’s so simple that it can be completed in its entirety via phone, fax or email. It starts by calling us and providing the name, birth date and date and time of arrest of the inmate. We will use this information to locate him or her within the system and verify their eligibility for bail. After that, you just fill out the short, straightforward bail bond application forms and indemnitor’s agreement, get it back to us, and that’s it! We will dispatch one of our agents to the jail and your friend or loved one will be released a short time later.
