The city of Los Banos is the second largest city in Merced County and has a population of 36,211. In the Spanish language "Los Banos" means "the baths", this name derives from the city's location near a natural water spring that feeds into the San Joaquin Valley. The city continues to grow but still holds a small town environment.
Law enforcement services are provided by the Los Banos Police Department. The Department is committed to educating the community with Crime Prevention as well as supporting programs such as Neighborhood Watch and "Adopt a Wall", which is a community graffiti abatement program.
Anyone arrested in Los Banos will likely be taken to the Merced County Jail.
DO I NEED A BAIL BONDSMAN?
Upon an arrest, the detained person will be taken to the Merced County jail facility for the "booking and process" and a bail amount will be set according the Merced County bail schedule. The bail schedule is a list of charges with bail amounts that the defendant is required to pay according to the crimes that were committed. The schedule is maintained annually by the county judge and local law enforcement.
Once the bail has been set, the arrestee will be eligible for release upon payment of the total bail amount or by a bondsman posting a bond for the total bail amount. Statistically, the state of California holds the highest bail amounts in the nation with the average amount being $20,000. These amounts can be an unrealistic amount of money to pay upfront, which is why most people seek the services of a bail bondsman. Anyone has the option to pay the full amount to the jail or court, but it needs to be in cash form. This money will be returned to you upon completion of the case. However, this can be months or sometimes even years.
Alternatively, when using a bondsman you will be required to pay 10% of the total bail amount. So for example, if the bail amount is set at $20,000, then the only amount you will be required to pay is $2,000. This is an earned fee that is unable to be refunded regardless of the outcome of the case.
In the state of California, the bail industry is governed by the California Department of Insurance, therefore, if someone is offering you "cheap bail" then you are either being misled or they are conducting themselves illegally. That is why you want to make sure you seek the services of a licensed and reputable bail bondsman who will give you the information you need in order to make the right decision.
888 Bail Bond understands that even the 10% fee can be difficult to afford, especially when it has not been budgeted for. In order to help ease the financial burden we accept payment by cash and all major credit cards: Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover. Payment plans are available to qualifying clients, and in most cases collateral is not required.
