HALF MOON BAY POLICE STATION AND JAIL INFORMATION
The Half Moon Bay Police Department’s mission is to offer quality service to the community. When arrested in Half Moon Bay, defendants will most often be taken to San Mateo County jails.
Depending on the capacity and workload of the jail, the booking process can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours. A larger facility in California can often take much longer than a smaller one. The smaller California jails may often transfer inmates to larger, central facilities after a certain period of time.
At the San Mateo County Jail, it can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours for release once a bail bond has been posted. If the arrestee is not bailed out, they will generally remain in custody until the matter has been resolved in court. Once the inmate has been updated in the system, they will be then eligible for bail. Bail bonds can be posted at most California jails 24 hours a day.
THE BAIL BOND PROCESS
When you call, it is helpful to have information regarding the defendant at hand when beginning the bail process. Details, such as what jail the arrestee is being detained, how much their bail is, etc., will help in us to move forward quickly. If you don't have this information, we will help you get it.
When you contact us, we’ll first explain the bail bond application process to you. We offer simple bail paperwork which is easy to understand that can be processed by email or fax in just a few minutes.
The bail bond fee is typically 10% of whatever the full bail amount is. For example, if the bail is set at $10,000, the non-refundable bail fee will cost $1,000. Bail bonds typically require payment prior to the arrestees release from jail. 888 Bail Bond offers our clients several payment financing options to make the purchase of a bond easier.
Within a few short minutes we can let you know if you qualify for financing. When you do, we will work out payment arrangements with no additional taxes, fees or finance charges. A credit card is most often the fastest and easiest way of paying for a bail bond. We accept all major credit cards.
