HOW BAIL BONDS WORK IN NEWPORT BEACH
In order to bail your loved one out of jail in Newport Beach, he or she will have to complete the bail bond process at the Newport Beach Police department, which is located at 870 Santa Barbara Dr, Newport Beach, CA 92660. Once your loved one arrives at the Newport Beach Police Department, he or she will begin the booking process by handing in all of his or her belongings for a pair of jail attire issued by the police department.
The jailer will then gather all of the inmate’s personal information such as his or her name, date of birth, etc., as well as a photo to go along with a written description of the inmate. The jailer will then input all of this information into the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Database for future reference. After the jailer has completed that task, he or she will then send the inmate to have his or her fingerprints scanned via the LiveScan Machine. The LiveScan machine is directly connected to the Department of Justice’s system and will be able to notify the jailer if the defendant were to have any outstanding warrants or is wanted by any other department.
Once the jailer gets the results from the fingerprint scan, he or she will then clear the inmate for bail. No bail bondsman anywhere can bail out an inmate prior to the jailer clearing the inmate for bail. However, while our agent at Newport Beach Bail Bonds is waiting for the defendant to be cleared for bail, he or she will contact you with a time and place for you two to meet so that you could fill out all of the paperwork necessary to complete the bail bond.
When all of the paperwork has been filled out and the defendant has been cleared for bail, our agent will post the bond at the jail. Once the jailer is handed the bail bond, he or she will verify that all of the information on the bond is filled out correctly and will complete the jail release process for the Newport Beach Police Department. The amount of time it takes to get the defendant will vary from jail to jail because some are busier than others.
However, this last step in the process could take as little as fifteen minutes to several hours depending on how busy the jail is at that time. When the defendant is released from jail, our agent will be waiting in the lobby and will explain the entire process and the defendant’s responsibilities regarding the bail bond. Once you both understand your responsibilities, our agent will hand one of you an official bail bond receipt, which will have all of the defendant’s charges and court information on it. As long as the defendant shows up to every court date, there should be no problem with the bail bond and he or she will stay out of jail.
