The officers of the UCSC Police Department take great pride in providing a safe and secure learning environment for students, staff and visitors. The department is responsible for animal control, bike licensing, parking enforcement, in addition to standard campus police duties.
Officers are fully endowed with the same law enforcement authority as every other officer in California. They undergo the same Peace Officer Standard Training program as well as additional training needed to work as a campus police officer. They patrol the campus community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year-round. It is their responsibility to enforce the law, arrest violators, investigate and suppress crime, and investigate traffic and bicycle accidents.
Anyone arrested on campus will be taken in for booking and processing. This will include fingerprinting and photographs as well as a background check and warrant search. Bail will be set during this time as well, and once booking is complete, we can post their bail as soon as possible.
In California, bail is determined on a county-by-county basis. Santa Cruz County judges hold an annual review of the bail schedule and makes any necessary adjustments. Law enforcement officers will set bail according to this bail schedule.
Several factors are taken into consideration when setting bail, such as severity of the crime, the defendant’s criminal history and flight risk. The purpose of bail is not to punish the suspect, but to induce them to return for all court hearings.
With bail amounts in California being so high, it is difficult for most people to afford paying this unexpected expense. When deciding to work with a bail bondsman, you’ll only have to pay 10% of the bail amount in order to get your loved one out of jail.
For example, if bail is $15,000 then you will pay a bondsman $1,500. This money won’t be returned, regardless of the outcome of the case. However, it is much less expensive than paying a large amount of money at once or risking the loss of your home when using it for collateral.
We offer a variety of bail payment options, like credit card acceptance and payment plans. Even with a payment plan, there are no additional taxes or fees. There is usually no need for collateral to secure a bail bond with us.
As soon as you get the call that a loved one has been arrested at UC Santa Cruz, call 888 Bail Bond at 888-BAIL-BOND. We’ll get started right away on processing a bail bond for them and making sure they spend as little time in jail as possible.
