Navigating the Jail System In Adelanto and San Bernardino County
San Bernardino County handles the corrections-related needs of its two million-plus residents through the multi-facility Detentions and Corrections Bureau. If you or your loved one get arrested in Adelanto or any of the County’s other high desert communities, you will be taken to Adelanto’s High Desert Detention Center. Unlike many facilities, the Detention Center operates as a Type II jail. This means two basic things. First, after your arrest, you will remain in the facility while you go through the arraignment process, and also while awaiting trial and having your day in court. In addition, it means that if you get convicted, you may also serve your sentence at the Detention Center instead of moving to another jail.
Since the High Desert Detention Center is a Type II facility, you will likely avoid one of the most trying consequences of getting arrested: receiving a transfer to a larger facility not located in the area. Still, even without facing the threat of a transfer, jail is not a pleasant experience. Depending on the current population of the Detention Center, it may take hours for you to make it all the way through the booking process. And once you complete this process, you will face all the major inconveniences that come with incarceration before trial. The best way to keep the length of your stay in custody to an absolute minimum is to call on the services of an experienced bail bonding company that understands how to get results in San Bernardino County.
The Expertise You Need
For decades, the bail bonding professionals at Herbert Bail Bonds have worked with the officials and facilities of San Bernardino County’s Detentions and Corrections Bureau. In the Adelanto area, we’ve handled cases at the High Desert Detention Center since the jail’s opening day in 2006. Our long years of experience at the Detention Center give us the expertise needed to secure bail as soon as possible and get you released from custody. Where other bail bondsmen see delays and obstacles, we see the shortest path to your freedom.
Convenience Is Key
In the best of circumstances, arrest and incarceration lead to significant stress and insecurity. At Herbert Bail Bonds, we never forget this simple truth. In order to lighten your load as much as we can, we maximize your convenience when making bail bond arrangements. You can make arrangements in person at any of three locations: our Pomona offices, your home or the High Desert Detention Center in Adelanto. Alternatively, if your circumstances or preferences work against an in-person meeting, you can make bonding arrangements remotely via fax or phone.
In a bid to increase your convenience even further, we also offer secondary services that may prove critical in your time of need. For instance, you we can direct you toward a professional private investigator if you need to gather supporting information for your case. We can also show you the steps needed to obtain relief if the court hearing your case sets a high bail that puts the cost of a bond beyond your ability to pay.
If you’re seeking a bail bond anywhere within the State of California, you will pay a fee of 8% or 10%, depending on your situation. The lower rate applies to several large groups of residents, including people with private legal representation, union members and current or past members of the military. However, most people must obtain their bond at the higher rate. Whichever bail bond fee applies in your case, we strive to help you cover your costs. People facing fairly low bail requirements may only need a financially qualified co-signer to secure their bond arrangements. However, we typically request some form of collateral when making arrangements for people facing high bail requirements. If the need for collateral applies in your case, we’ll provide you with a detailed list of the types of assets we accept.
A Quick Return to Your Daily Routine
Even if you only remain in custody for a short amount of time, your arrest can lead to significant disruptions in your ability to meet your personal, social, school-related or work-related commitments. At family-owned and operated Herbert Bail Bonds, we dedicate ourselves to helping you avoid those disruptions and get back to normal life at the earliest available opportunity. Throughout the year and around the clock, we stand head and shoulders above other bonding service providers in Adelanto and all of San Bernardino County.
