We realize that the majority of our clientele are unaccustomed to calling on the services of a bail bondsman. Therefore, we would like to assure you that all of our bonds are handled in a professional and confidential manner.
When you call, a California licensed bail agent will help you understand the bail bond process and answer all of your questions. We are available 24 x 7 at 888-224-5266.
We have local agents to accommodate bail bonds for the Whittier Police Department jail including the areas of Santa Fe Springs, Whittier and surrounding communities.
Additionally, our agents are available throughout California. So whether you’re in Whittier or elsewhere in California, we can help – even if the defendant is in a different area of the state.

In 2000, Chief David M. Singer was sworn in to lead the Department. Chief Singer came to Whittier with many years of law enforcement experience including holding the position of Chief of Police at Signal Hill.
Whittier has about 12 cells, which hold four inmates in each cell. Inmates are held for approximately 72 hours. Detainees who are not bailed out at the Whittier station are held until the first court date, either at Whittier or an LA County jail.
If the arrestee is in custody for misdemeanors, and most felonies, he will likely go to court in 1-2 business days. This is normal procedure for California.

JAIL TRANSFER MEANS LONGER TIME SPENT IN JAIL
Based on space needs at Whittier or the amount of time spent in custody, defendants are often transferred to Los Angeles County jail facilities. Men would generally be transferred to the Twin Towers facility, Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles.
The expected release time from the Men’s Central Jail is about six hours but can be as many as 12 hours. Women are generally transferred to Lynwood (Central Regional Detention Facility. The expected release time from Lynwood is 2-6 hours. This can vary depending on how busy the jail is on that particular day.
In order to avoid transfer and obtain release from jail as soon as possible, we recommend that you begin the bail process as quickly as possible. If transfer as already occurred, we can help. We offer Twin Towers bail bonds and Lynwood bail bonds.
WHAT IS BAIL?
Bail is the amount of money a judge decides is adequate for a defendant to be released until their trial. The purpose of bail is to ensure the defendant’s appearance at all trials and hearings. If the defendant fails to appear the entire bail amount can be lost.
When you use a bail bondsman, our fee is 10% of the full bail amount which is regulated by the State of California. This fee is nonrefundable. An alternative solution to using a bail bond company is to pay the full amount of the bail directly to the court.
By example, if the bail amount is $50,000, you could pay a bondsman a $5,000 fee. Or, if you have the funds readily available, you could take $50,000 in cash or cashier’s check to the clerk of the court.
If you are like most of our clients, even 10% of the bond may represent a cost that you feel you cannot afford. We can help with creative solutions and bail bond payment options.
Our licensed bondsmen can come to your location (such as the jail, your home or your office). Or, we can have bail bond documents completed via fax or e-mail, whichever is easiest for you.
Once the paperwork is completed and payment has been arranged, we will have a licensed bondsman post the bond at the proper jail facility. In order to get out of jail as quickly as possible; we recommend that you get the process started as quickly as possible.
The time that the bail bond process takes varies greatly from jail to jail. After being processed the detainee usually can be released between 2-3 hours depending on workload at the time the booking takes place.
