The West Valley Division Sheriffs Station provides 24 hour uniformed law enforcement patrol services for the contract cities of Saratoga, Cupertino and Los Altos Hills as well as unincorporated areas. The West Valley Division is based at the Westside Sheriff's Sub-station, located in the community of Cupertino. The unincorporated Santa Cruz Mountain communities of Redwood Estates, Aldercroft Heights, Holy City, and Chemeketa Park, and the former Moffett Field Naval Air Station are also patrolled from this station.
If someone you know has been arrested in the Cupertino area, arrestees will typically be transported to the Santa Clara County main jail complex in San Jose for booking and processing. During the arrest and booking process, if applicable, the bail amount will be set. It's important to undertstand that the booking process can often take quite a while to complete.
During their time in jail, the detainee will not have access to their cell phones credit cards, etc.
When a bail bond is posted at this facility, release can often take between 2 to 4 hours depending on the individual case and how busy the facility is. A bail bondsman, an attorney, or a member of the clergy may visit inmates at anytime and bail can be posted at the main jail complex 24-hours a day.
Bail is set based on the charges and according to the Santa Clara County Bail Schedule. You can bail out a defendant by taking the full amount of the bail to the court or jail and, at the conclusion of the case, you will get your funds returned (possibly less fines and court fees, if the defendant is found guilty).
If you don't have the full amount or you don't want to tie up your funds, you can use a bail bondsman.
The cost of a Santa Clara County bail bond is established by the State of California generally at 10% of the total bail amount. For example, if the bail amount is set at $25,000, the bail bond will cost $2,500. This is the fee for using a bondsman.
Most of our clients find it easiest and most convenient to pay for a bail bond by using their credit card. For your convenience, we always accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. For additional information, watch our informative bail payment option video.
THE BAIL BOND PROCESS
A bail bond is a contract that releases a defendant from jail and guarantees that he or she will appear in court on a specified date. The purpose of the bail system is to guarantee the appearance of a criminal defendant in court.
Upon our initial phone consultation with you, we will collect basic information about the defendant’s situation such as, their bail amount (if you know it), their charges, the length of time in their current residence, if they’re employed, etc. Once the bond has been approved, the necessary forms will need to be signed. Both the bail application and contract are two very simple and easy to understand documents.
Many times, we can also offer no collateral bail bonds for those who qualify. Collateral is something of value which is used to secure a debt or ensure payment. We’ll take a look at several guiding factors such as the length of time the defendant has been living in California, their current employment situation, their credit rating and other various factors.
