What is the first step in bailing someone out of jail in Los Angeles County?
When someone is arrested in LA County Chad Conley Bail Bonds can help. There are lots of questions that are associated with the bail bond process and most people don’t have the time to learn it in minutes as they stress to get their friend or family out of jail in a hurry.
Let’s start with what you will need to know when you call a bail bondsman. The first thing we will ask is your name and number. This is to be able to call you back should the call be lost, dropped or they need to locate who was arrested and call you back with information regarding their arrest, charges and bond.
The second thing is the arrestee’s name and DOB/ date of birth. This is what is used to locate them in the jail system or get booking information.
Third we will ask either the city or approximate location and time to know where to start. It is helpful if you know what agency actually arrested them.
Why is the arresting agency and time of arrest important? While County jails have computer websites that inmates can be found once they are booked the smaller jails do not. If you are arrested and taken to a city jail you will be booked and processed there. City jails to not house inmates so usually once you are booked if you do not quickly post a bail bond you will be transferred to the larger LA County jail. Once you arrive at the LA County Twin Tower Jail you will be booked and processed there all over again. When this happens you will be entered into the computer system where locating you becomes much easier.
Often times a bail bond can be posted at the local city jail and their release time will be hours sooner not to mention they would not have to go through the horrible booking process at the LA County Twin Towers Jail. The booking time for a smaller city jail is usually a couple of hours with a release time of 30 minutes to two hours while being transferred means transfer time plus a 6 to 10 hours booking time before an bail bond can be posted and then 6 to 10 hours release time after the bail bond has been posted/ accepted. We ask the approximate time they were arrested so we have an idea of whether they may still be at the local city jail or if they may have already been transferred. This helps us know where to start looking first to locate the inmate faster or to know if they may be in the middle of a transfer.
Another reason we ask what Police or Sheriff Department arrested them is because not all arrests are made in Los Angeles County are by LA Police Department or LA County Sheriff Department. The arrestee could have either had a warrant from another County and that County Sheriff came to make the arrest. They could also have been arrested by LA County for a warrant in another County. If they were arrested by a County Sheriff other than LA County they would not be taken to LA County Main Jail Facility and booked so while we know they were arrested in LA County they may be miles away being booked. This is obviously when it gets more complicated unless we know what agency actually made the arrest.
Once we have located the arrestee we should know there booking number, booking information, if they have a bail bond amount, have any bail holds and are considered bondable. How much the bond amount has been set for and in most Counties what their charges are. Now it’s time to get the bail bond process started! http://www.chadthebailguy.com

There are a lot of bail bond companies that advertise LGBT, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender. The question is why? Are they LGBT owned? Does it mean they care more or are they simply trying to reel you in based on search engines? If you asked most of them they simply wouldn’t have a good answer off the cuff. Some may have forgotten that their web designer even put that on their website.
The bail bond is the same whether you are lesbian or gay right? Your bond should cost the same right? Do you get a special discount or a LGBT bondsman that is sent out?
The answers is simple really. First off there are not special discounts for LGBT bail bonds and the prices should be the same for everyone. There are few LGBT bail bondsman and frankly you most likely aren’t going to ask them when you call if they are or just advertising it and really it shouldn’t matter.
As far as caring I believe that a person is either very caring or their not. They either love helping people or they don’t. They either love their job or they don’t. These are qualities that one possesses no matter what their gender, gender preference is or who they are dealing with.
So what is the real difference and what is important? Well not everyone involved in the arrest process may be caring or be there to help. When someone is arrested they are taken to jail and while city jails are smaller and have either few people in the holding cell or even a private cell the county jails are far more crowded. First people are thrown in a catch all cell that has every kind of person that is arrested. During the booking process you will be fingerprinted, photographed, interviewed and a national background check is performed. The interview process will ask you about yourself and if you are housed they will usually segregate people for safety based on ethnicity, background, medical and sexual preference. However until this happens you are left to fin for yourself in general population holding tanks with lots of very prejudice types of people of all crime statuses. Timing is important especially if you are arrested in a local city jail and there usually is an ability to post a bail bond there prior to being transferred to the county jail.
Your relationship with your bail bondsman goes far beyond the initial application process. It is a relationship until your case is completely over. It usually starts with a friend or family member meeting to file out applications and present ID. You want to know that who you are meeting is not only caring about who is in jail but also who is out getting paperwork prepared for your bond. You will possibly be meeting someone you don’t know in an unusual location like a parking structure at the jail. You may even be planning to pay cash to whom you meet. Once the bond is posted the defendant will have to deal with the bondsman as well once they are out to also fill out their paperwork and present ID and possibly make payments along the way. The bail bond company will be in charge of your bond and freedom until your case is over. So although it does not matter if your bondsman is LGBT it does matter that they care and respect you.
Bottom line is that it shouldn’t matter whether you bail bondsman is lesbian, gay straight, bisexual or transgender. It should only matter that they are extremely caring, very fast and extremely professional. That they offer low cost bail bond pricing, payment plans and take visa, MasterCard, AMEX and Discover as well as cash. They should treat you like a client because you are!

In County jail a bail bond cannot be posted until after the defendant is fully booked and processed. This used to take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours to complete, however for several months now this process has been averaging closer to 6-8 hours. There are several things that change booking time the first is how busy the jail is at the time. While this makes up for a big part of the county jail booking process it is not the only thing that determines when a bail bond can be posted. Other things that hold the bail bond posting up are alcohol level if they were brought in on a DUI/ driving under the influence, jailor staff shift changes, problems in a department that require jailors to attend to such as fights or riots, not having your ID when you are arrested, if you have ever used an AKA or alias name, medical problems such as heart rate or whether you are currently on a medication or if you say something to them that makes them feel you would hurt yourself etc. During this time the defendant will be photographed, fingerprinted, interviewed and need to undergo a nationwide warrant check. The warrant check is generally the reason that booking takes so long because it often takes several hours for these results to be processed. Once the warrant check comes back the jailer will mark the defendant clear for bail. Once someone is clear a bondsman is then able to post your bail bond. The release process once a bail bond is posted is generally about the same amount of time as booking process for you to finally be released from jail.
Los Angeles County Jail usually takes roughly two hours longer than Orange County Jail for both booking and release process. However if you are arrested at a local city jail such as Laguna Beach Jail, Newport Beach Jail, Fullerton jail, Buena Park Jail or Anaheim Jail the booking and release process is substantially faster so long as you quickly post a bond prior to being transferred to the County Jail facility.
If you are arrested at a city jail that takes bail bonds then posting one prior to being transferred can save you hours. Generally you are booked at the smaller city jail and then if you do not post a bail bond they will transfer you to the county jail. Once at the county jail you will be booked all over again prior to being able to post a bail bond. Most city jails will book you within 30 minutes to 2 hours and you will be ready to post your bond. Their release times are generally about 15 minutes to 2 hours and you walk out of jail.
