how bail bonds work in corona ca

When someone is arrested in the city of Corona, they will most likely be taken to the Corona Police Department to complete the booking process. The Corona Police Department is located at 730 Public Safety Way Corona, CA 92880, right in the heart of the city to ensure that the police are always close when they are needed.


The booking process could take anywhere from half an hour to several hours depending on how busy the jail is at the time. The first step in the booking process is inputting all of the inmate’s personal information into the system. The purpose of this step is so that the police know who is in jail and how many times they have been arrested before. Every inmate must go through this process every time they are arrested. Once that step completed, the jailer will then send the defendant to have his or her fingerprints scanned.


The fingerprint scanning process is used to determine whether the inmate has any outstanding warrants or is wanted by any other agency in the country. This process is done via the LiveScan machine, which is a machine directly connected to the Department of Justice and sends the fingerprints to be run through their databases. Once the D.O.J. has ran the defendant’s fingerprints through their databases, they will send the jailer the results showing whether the defendant’s record is clean or not. However, this part of the booking process could take up to a couple of hours to get the results back.


The jailer won’t be able to accept any bail bonds for the defendant until he or she has received the results back from the scan. That means that our agent at Corona Bail Bonds won’t be able to bail out your loved one until the jailer has cleared the inmate for bail. Our agent, in the meantime, will get updates from the jailer every half hour and will meet with you to get the paperwork out of the way.


When the paperwork is done and the inmate is cleared for bail, our agent will immediately go to the jail and post the bond to make sure that the defendant will be released from jail in the shortest amount of time possible. The jailer will then verify all of the information on the bail bond before accepting it and will then complete the jail release process. When the defendant is released into your custody, our agent will meet with the defendant so that he or she could fill out the rest of the paperwork for the bond.


Once that is completed, the bail bondsman will hand one of you two an official receipt that will contain all of the defendant’s arrest information and court information that you will need to know when to show up to court. It is important that the defendant shows up to court or the court will have to issue a bench warrant for his or her arrest.
