CALIFORNIA CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT INFORMATION

They are committed to safeguarding the lives and property of the residents of California City and respond to public concerns in a manner which promotes neighborhoods free from the fear of crime, while ensuring quality of life.
When someone has been taken into custody in California City, they will typically be transported to the main Bakersfield Jail for booking and processing. The booking process typically includes mug shots (photographs), fingerprints, and background checks.
It's helpful to know this process may take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours or more depending on the defendant’s individual situation. A bail bond cannot be posted with the jail until the defendant is completely booked into the system. However, we can get you started right away.
Once bail bond has been posted at this facility, release may often take between 2 to 4 hours, depending on the workload of the jail staff and the defendant’s circumstances. If the defendant is not bailed out, he or she will generally remain in custody until the matter has been handled in court.
WHAT IS A BAIL BOND?
A bail bond is a written contract which will release a defendant from jail. It also guarantees that he or she will appear in court on the specified date. Be aware that once somebody is arrested, the legal system has 72 hours, or three business days, to get them before a Judge.
Many people cannot wait in jail for days due to work and family commitments, nor do they want to be in jail that long which is why a bail bond is the fastest most convenient way to go. By bailing the defendant out quickly, you can often prevent the defendant from making any legal mistakes in court as the result of not having acquired proper legal counsel.
For further information about the details of a bail bond, don't hesitate to call and speak with one of our knowledgeable, qualified agents. We can also arrange to have a 24-hour licensed agent come to your home or location at no additional cost to you.
