Lake Forest used to be the unincorporated area of El Toro. It was settled in the late 1800s officially became a city in 1991. This city boasts 78,000 people who reside in an area of about 17 square miles. Lake Forest is currently the most densely populated city in South Orange County. It contains two lakes from which it gets its name. They are man-made, with condominiums and custom homes lining their shores.
Lake Forest is the 10th safest city in our nation, thanks to the Community Policing relationship that the OC Sheriff’s Department has created between itself, the residents and the city council.
When someone has been arrested in Lake Forest, they will typically be taken to the the Orange County Central Jail, (OCJ) which is the main jail facility located in Santa Ana. The booking process generally includes photographs, fingerprints, and background checks.
It’s important to know that depending upon how busy these jails are, it typically takes from 4 to 6 hours for their bail information to be posted to the general public. Therefore, beginning the bail process as early as possible is always recommended for a much faster release from jail.
However, commonly at the Orange County Jail, they will accept a bond from a bondsman and expedite processing of the defendant as they are able.
