Arrest and Booking Process
Regardless of which sub-section officers are working in the police department, when someone is arrested in West Covina they are all taken to the West Covina police station where they undergo booking and processing. This is the procedure in which the arrestee has their fingerprints recorded, photographs taken and a national background check is conducted. It is only after booking and processing is complete that bail is set and an inmate is eligible for release via bail bond. Depending on how busy the station is, booking and processing can take anywhere from 45-minutes to a few hours.
Once booking and processing is complete, inmates can remain at the West Covina police station jail for no more than 72-hours. If they are not bailed out before that, then inmates are transferred to one of the larger jails in downtown Los Angeles. Men are usually sent to Twin Towers while women are taken to CRDF, also known as the Lynwood Jail. When transferred, inmates will need to go through another round of processing at these larger, much busier jails. As a result, they will likely spend an additional 12 to 24-hours waiting, during which they cannot be bailed out. If the bail bond process is begun while the inmate is still at the West Covina jail, though, it is possible to avoid the transfer process altogether.
The Bail Bond Process
Bailing someone out of jail is probably a lot less complicated than you think. It begins by calling and providing us a little general information about your friend or loved one so we can locate him or her within the system and verify their eligibility for bail. Then, you will need to fill out the short, simple bail bond application forms and sign the indemnitor’s agreement. All of the forms are pretty straight forward, but we’re more than happy to go over them with you if you have any questions. Once everything is filled out and signed, we will send one of our agents to the jail and your friend or loved one will be released a short time later.
If you’re unable to meet with us in person, or if you’d just feel more comfortable handling this from your home, we can easily complete the bail bond process via phone, fax or email. What works best for you works best for us.
