The City of Chico strives to maintain a strong sense of community and small town living, while at the same time developing into a vibrant regional center for business, education, employment, medical care, recreation and cultural activities. Chico has grown since its founding in 1860 to over 33 square miles. The total population in the Chico area is nearly 107,000 residents, with the majority residing within the city limits.
The Chico Police Department currently has 149 employees, 97 of which are sworn officers. The Department is a full-service law enforcement agency, preventing crime and maintaining law and order in Chico by enforcing the laws.
The CPD is divided into two divisions- Operations and Support- which are both overseen by the Chief of Police, Michael Maloney. There are also specialized units and teams that help in supporting the services provided by the department. Under the Operations Division are Patrol, Crisis Negotiations, SWAT, Traffic, Special Operations (formerly Community Outreach), and Code Enforcement.

The booking process includes fingerprinting, mug shots, background checks and warrant search. After booking, bail will be set and they will be permitted to make a phone call.
PAYING FOR A BAIL BOND
If you are visiting our site, chances are you were the recipient of your loved one's only phone call from jail. We know that seeking out the best bail bondsman is not the way you planned to spend your day. By calling us, we hope that you will be pleasantly surprised by how simple the process can be.
The cost of a bail bond in California is 10% of the total bail amount. So, if your friend's bail is set at $20,000, you will pay a bondsman $2,000. Sometimes, it just isn't possible to pay this large amount of money all at once. There are some bail bondsmen who are willing to go outside the lines of the law and accept a much lower fee for their services. We would advise you to look elsewhere. If someone is willing to operate their business illegally, just imagine what other things they may be capable of.
At 888 Bail Bond, we will gladly accept payments with any major credit card. In most cases we require no collateral for a bail bond. We will even sit down with you and come up with a payment plan if that's what you need to get a bail bond today. There are no additional fees with a payment plan.
With help from our bondsman, your loved one can spend as little time in jail as possible, so don't hesitate to call us at any time of the day or night at 888-224-5266.
