Los Angeles County Bail Bonds Process
The most common form of initial contact with
a Los Angeles Bail Bonds Company
or Bail Bondsman is through a phone
call from either a family member or the inmate
themselves. Inmates at the Los
Angeles County Jail or Men's Central
Jail are allowed to make collect calls
from their cells. Initially the Los
Angeles Bail Bonds Company or Bail
Bondsman will gather basic information
such as name and contact numbers for possible cosigners
for the Bail Bond agreement.
One of our Licensed Bail Bonds Agents
will ask a number of questions to evaluate the risk
of having the inmate released on a Bail
Bond. Every Bond
is evaluated on a case by case basis. Questions
can include the defendants past criminal record,
employment and residence history for both the
inmate and the cosigner/s. This is
a Bail industry standard, so expect
this regardless of what Bail Bonds Company
or Bail Bondsman you use.
Once the Bail Bond is approved,
the client will be asked to sign Bail Bond
documentation that can also be completed via fax
or email. Once the paperwork is completed,
our Licensed Bail Bonds Agent will
take the necessary paperwork to the Los
Angeles County Jail to "post the
Bail Bond". The entire
Bail Bond Process in Los Angeles
County Jail or Men's Central Jail
can take approximately 8 - 12 hours due to its very
large inmate capacity.
What Will be the Bail Bond Cost?
California Bail Law mandates
that the Bail Bond fee charged
is 10% of the total Bail Amount.
(for example, the total Bail Amount
is $10,000, your cost should be 10% which is $1,000.)
There are a few exceptions where Bail Bond
Companies are allowed to charge a discounted
rate of 8% of the total Bail
Bond Amount. These exceptions
- Clients that are represented by a Private
- Active Union Members
- Active Military personnel & Veterans
- AARP Members
Be careful of anyone offering a lower amount,
for paying anything less for a Bail Bond
is illegal, and can get your loved one back in
custody and leave you out of your
money! Do you really want to deal with a
Bail Bonds Company or Bail
Bondsman that is willing to break the law?
There are many legal alternatives.
We provide 0% interest financing, with affordable
plans that fit all budgets.

In general, the entire process at the
Los Angeles County Jail or Men's
Central Jail (booking, posting
bail, inmate release ..etc.) is
usually more delayed than the average Sheriff or
Police Station due to the large inmate
capacity of its Jail. As
you can imagine, the Bail Bond Process
itself is different in every station due to the
way the Jail itself operates.
Below you will find some helpful information that

The Los Angeles County Jail Booking Process
When a person is arrested at the Los
Angeles County Men's Central Jail, there
is a process that must be completed before a
Bail Bondsman can post a
Bail Bond on behave of the
inmate. This process is commonly known
as "Booking Process".
Once a person is arrested and placed in custody
of the Los Angeles County Jail
or Men's Central Jail, the inmate
has to go thru the Inmate Reception Center
(IRC). There the Jailer
will take inventory of the arrestee's belongings
as he/she searches for weapons, drugs, paraphernalia
or any other threats. Then the Jailer
will fingerprint and run a background check on the
individual to ensure that there isn't any outstanding
warrants or possible probation / parole holds.
The fingerprints are tracked through the "Live Scan"
system, which will check / update local, state and
federal databases. This process can take several
hours depending on the workload the Jailers
are experiencing at the time. They will not
get a change to make a phone call until they are
in a housed in a cell. Some inmates
will try to contact a Bail Bonds Company
or Bail Bondsman directly (we take
collect calls); others will contact a family member
or loved one first. Whichever way it may be,
the faster Bail
County .Com is
contacted the faster we can start the Bail
Bond Process. Also the results for
the criminal background/ warrant check can take
several hours and must be completed in order for
a Bail Bonds Agent to be allowed
to post Bail.
Los Angeles County Jail Visitation Hours
The Los Angeles County Men's Central
Jail allows inmates to receive
a 15 minute visit limited to 1 adult and 2 children.
The visiting schedule at the Los Angeles
County Jail or Men's Central Jail
is (10:00am – 3:00pm & 5:00pm – 7:00pm) Thursday
- Sunday. There is no visiting in the
Inmate Reception Center (IRC)
Children are required to be accompanied
by a parent or legal guardian. The
Los Angeles County Jail or
Men's Central Jail requires all
visitors to show a valid government issued photo
identification. It is recommended to show
up as early as possible, accommodations are on a
first come, first serve basis; and can be delayed
if the Jail deputy’s workload is
elevated. All visitors at the Los
Angeles County Jail or Men's Central
Jail are subject to search and will be
arrested if any warrants, illegal Drugs or weapons
are found by the Jail
Options for Release
A Bail Bond is not the only
option for release from the Los Angeles
County Jail or Men's Central Jail.
There are several options for the release of an
inmate. These options include:
Bail Bond - A written promise
signed by a defendant or a surety (one
who promises to act in place of another) to
pay an amount fixed by a court should the
defendant named in the document fail
to appear in court for the designated criminal
proceeding at the date and time specified.
Cash Bail - Requires
payment of the full Bail Amount.
The inmate will be released if he/she is clear
for Bail, and will be reimbursed
once he/she has appeared to all required court
dates. This is a good alternative for those
who have a very minimal Bail Amount.
Cash Bail can be posted for
large amounts as long as the payee is able to
source the money and willing to have the money
tied up for the long periods of time.
Money is sourced to ensure that it wasn't obtained
through illegal means.
As the name indicates, this option involves
real estate. The process can take several weeks
and is similar to a real estate transaction.
The property must have at least 150% of the
Bail Amount in equity.
There are fees involved, check with your local
authorities for specific fees. With this
option, the court can foreclose the property
if the defendant fails to appear to
all mandated court dates.
"CITE OUT"- This
is when a person is arrested, then released
after being issued a citation that states the
date he/she must return to court. Very
common for traffic violations and minor infractions.
If the defendant fails to appear in court, the
defendant will most likely be issued a warrant.
Own Recognizance (O.R.)
- Only a judge can grant a defendant
to be released on "O.R.". The
defendant is released with a written promise
that he / she will attend all required court
dates. There are several factors that a judge
usually takes into consideration when releasing
a inmate on O.R. These factors include
the severity of the crime, the individuals criminal
history, current employment, ties with family/local
community, and the overall likeliness that the
individual will flee. O.R. is not
guaranteed even if the defendant satisfies all
of these factors.
Los Angeles County Jail - Men's Central Jail
There is also a process that must occur prior
to a person is being released from the Los
Angeles County Men's Central Jail.
Like the booking process, this process can vary
depending on the workload each Jail
or sheriff / police station has.
Smaller sheriff / police stations can take only
a few minutes, while larger Jails
(like Los Angeles County Jail)
can take several hours before releasing an individual.
The Los Angeles County
Jail usually takes anywhere from 12 hours
- 24 hour to release an inmate after posting the
Bail Bond. Once an individual
is released he/she can claim personal property,
and go home.
