San Dimas Sheriff Station and Jail Information
The City of San Dimas contracts with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to service it’s law enforcement needs. Deputies working out of the San Dimas Sheriff Station are also responsible for patrolling unincorporated areas of Covina, Azusa, Glendora, La Verne, Claremont, Azusa Canyon, Mt. Baldy and the Angeles National Forest. Individuals arrested in San Dimas or any of these areas will be taken to the San Dimas Sheriff Station where they will undergo booking and processing. The procedure can take anywhere from 1-hour to several hours, depending on how busy the station is. It is only after booking and processing is complete that bail will be set and the inmate will be able to be released via bail bond.
The on-site jail located on the premises is not large, and is only intended to hold inmates for a maximum of 72-hours. If the inmate is not bailed out before that, then he or she will likely be transferred to Twin Towers (in the case of men) or to the Lynwood Jail (in the case of women). Once transfer occurs, the inmate can expect to spend at least an additional 12-hours in custody as they wait their turn to be processed in to the new facility. Beginning the bail bond process quickly, though, can often avoid the transfer process altogether.
Options for Release
Bail bonds are certainly the most widely used method to get someone out of custody, but they aren’t the only option for release available. Once arrested, it is possible that an inmate can be released via one of the following methods.
- O.R. – O.R., otherwise known as “Own Recognizance” is when a judge grants an inmate their release from custody provided that they sign a written promise to return to court at the appointed date and time.
- Citation Release – Being “cited out” is usually reserved for minor infractions and traffic violations. Once someone has been arrested, they are given a citation with a date and time to return to court. No written promise is needed, and no further contact with law enforcement is necessary.
- Cash Bond – Once bail has been set, it’s possible to go directly to the court clerk and pay the bail in its entirety in order to secure the inmate’s release. If the inmate meets all of their court obligations, the money is refunded (minus any relevant fees). If they do not, the money is forfeited to the court and a warrant is issued.
- Property Bond – If no cash is available to bail someone out, property can be put up instead. The equity in the property must be at least 150% of the amount of bail that was set, and if the defendant does not meet their court obligations, then the property is forfeited. Property bonds can often take a few weeks to go through as the property must be appraised by the courts.
The Bail Bond Process
Our bail bond process is pretty simple. It begins by providing us with a little general information about the inmate so that we can locate him or her within the system and verify their eligibility for bail. Then, we have you fill out the short, simple bail bond application forms and indemnitor’s agreement. Lastly, once those are done, we dispatch one of our agents to the jail and your friend or loved one will be released shortly thereafter.
If you are unable to meet with us in person, or would feel more comfortable handling the bail bond process in your home, we’re equipped to handle the entire thing, from start to finish, via phone, fax or email.
