The deputies working out of the Crescent Valley Sheriff Station patrol the cities of La Crescenta and La Canada Flintridge, as well as the unincorporated areas of La Crescenta/Montrose, Lopez Canyon, Kagel Canyon, Little Tujunga Canyon, Big Tujunga Canyon, parts of the Angeles National Forest and Mount Wilson.

Those who are arrested in these areas will be taken to the Crescent Valley Sheriff Station for booking and processing, and will likely be housed therein until their arraignment in court or until they obtain a bail bond.

It should be noted that the jail is very small, and cannot hold many inmates. As a result, if it becomes overcrowded, inmates will often be transferred to larger facilities. Men are often taken downtown to the Twin Towers Correctional Facility while females are transferred to the Lynwood Jail.

When transferred, inmates must wait their turn to be processed in to the new facility before they can be bailed out. This means that, if they aren’t bailed out directly from the Crescenta Valley City Jail, they will likely remain in custody at least an additional 24 hours during the transfer process. If the bail bond process is begun quickly enough, though, it’s possible to avoid the transfer process altogether.

Booking and Processing

Booking and processing is the procedure in which an inmate’s photograph is taken, their fingerprints are recorded and a national background check is conducted. It’s the first thing that happens once an inmate has been arrested and taken to the police station. Once this procedure is complete, bail is set for those who are eligible and a bail bond can be obtained.

Options for Release

Bail bonds aren’t the only way an inmate can be released from jail. There are other options for release which include –

  • Own Recognizance – Often referred to as O.R., own recognizance is when an arrestee provides a written agreement to the judge that he or she promises to meet their court obligations if they are allowed to be released from custody.
  • Cited Out – This option is typically reserved for minor infractions and violations. It’s when an inmate makes a promise to appear before the court at the appointed date and time and is allowed to go about their life as usual.
  • Cash Bonds – Once bail is set, it’s possible to go to the court clerk and pay the entire amount of bail to secure an inmate’s release. If the inmate meets their court obligations, the money is refunded. If not, then the full amount of bail is forfeited to the court.
  • Property Bonds – This works like a cash bond, but instead of putting up cash to secure an inmate’s release, a person puts up a piece of property instead. If the inmate meets their court obligations, nothing happens. If not, then the property is forfeited to the court.

Why Use a Bail Bondsman?

The cost of bail varies depending on the crimes that an individual is charged with, and it can get expensive. Most people don’t have large sums of cash or valuable property that they can hand over to the court clerk in order to secure the release of an inmate, and that’s where a bail bondsman can be useful.

If a defendant does not meet their court obligations, the signer of the bail bond will be responsible for the entire amount of bail. So, in the example above, even if you use a bail bondsman to secure an inmate’s release, should they not show up for court, you may find yourself owing the full amount of bail.

The Bail Bond Process

It starts by giving us a call and providing the name, birth date and date and time of arrest of the inmate you’re looking to bail out. If not all of this information is available, that’s okay, we can still help you. We will next need to locate the inmate within the jail system and verify their eligibility for bail. Once this has been established, we will have you fill out and sign a few short, simple, bail bond application forms and indemnitor’s agreement. Then, we will dispatch one of our agents to the jail and your friend or loved one will be released a few hours later.

The whole process can be completed at the jail, our office, or even via phone, fax or email. We pride ourselves on our commitment to making the process as easy and stress-free as possible.

If you want to get the bail bond application process started immediately, feel free to call us any time of day or night at 855-414-BAIL (2245). We’re always there when you need us.
