The San Bernardino County Department of Corrections Can Be Tricky
Highland, California is a small to mid-sized city for the area, with about 55,000 residents. Because it isn’t a large city, it does not have its own detention center. Instead, it has a small holding facility inside the sheriff’s station, which is located at 26985 East Baseline. It is the busiest station in all of San Bernardino County.
The holding facility is classified as a Type I facility. This means that it is a temporary holding center designed to keep inmates for a maximum of 96 hours. However, given that it is the busiest station in the county, it rarely holds inmates for more than a few hours. Instead, there are regular transports to take those in custody to the larger detention centers within the county.
Once this move takes place, things move much more slowly. Just getting processed can take about 6 hours, and after that you still need to handle the bail process to get released. Call Herbert Bail Bonds as soon as possible so we can get you out of custody before the transfer is made. However, if a transfer takes place before we can get you out of custody, hope is not lost. We have a great relationship with Central Detention Center, High Desert Detention Center, and West Valley Detention Center, so no matter where you are, we can help.
We Have the Experience You Need
We talk a lot about getting you out of custody quickly, but you might be wondering just how we can make things go faster for you. While we cannot make the department of corrections move any faster, we can make sure we are working as efficiently as possible. New and inexperienced bondsmen have to carefully read through every form and often must consult Google to make sense of them. To get to the jail, detention center, or courthouse, they need to use Google Maps. But we know the forms and we know where we are going. By the time we get there, the forms are ready. No matter the agency holding you—from the local police to immigration enforcement—we can get the job done faster than other bail bondsmen, shaving time off of your stay in custody.
We Work to Make the Process Convenient for You
In addition to working quickly, we also do everything we can to make the process easy and stress-free for you. No one needs to come to us to get things started; all we need is a phone call. We can make arrangements via telephone or fax, head to someone’s home, or just head right to the jail for you. Being arrested is bad enough; we do not want to add to your burden.
Paying for Your Bail Bond
If you are taken into custody but either do not have the funds to pay your bail or you cannot access them, you do not need to remain in custody. Instead, you call Herbert Bail Bonds. When you work with us, or any other bail bondsmen, you pay just 10% of the cost of your bail as long as you show up to all court appearances. This 10% is the amount set by the California Department of Insurance, and it can be lowered to 8% in certain circumstances:
- The arrested party has retained a private criminal defense attorney.
- A party to the transaction is a member of a workers’ union.
- A party to the transaction is a veteran or active member of the United States Military.
In some cases, this amount may be too much to afford outright. To help with this, we offer flexible financing and repayment options. We consider some forms of collateral as well, as well as using cosigners. Keep in mind that the fee you pay us in non-refundable, but ultimately, your freedom is worth it.
