ARREST & BAIL
If someone you know has been arrested by the Santa Clara Police Department, arrestees will typically be taken to the Santa Clara Station for questioning, then transported to the Main County Jail in San Jose.
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.
The booking process when someone is arrested in Santa Clara includes photographs, fingerprints, and background checks. It's important to know that this process can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours or more depending on the individual situation of the defendant. A bail bond cannot be posted until the defendant is completely booked into the system.
The Santa Clara Police Department provides law enforcement and policing services to the City of Santa Clara. They have 147 sworn officers, 74 civilian employees and approximately 30 reserves. The department is divided into three divisions: the Field Operations Division, the Investigations Division (Detective Bureau) which is responsible for the majority of follow up investigations, especially for major crimes and the Administrative Services Division. The Administrative Services Division is made up of the Chief’s Office, Records, Evidence, Temporary Holding Facility (like a jail, only short-term), Warrants, Communications, and the Community Services Unit (CSU).
The Santa Clara Police Department is part of a team effort to make Santa Clara a pleasant and safe place to live. With outreach programs such as Neighborhood Watch, Business Watch, DARE, Volunteers, and the Citizens' Police Academy, they involve citizens in how policing is done in Santa Clara.
A bail bond in Santa Clara will typically cost 10%, which is mandated by California law. This is a non-refundable percentage of the total amount of the bail. As an example, if the bail amount is set at $15,000, your portion would cost $1,500.
