Highland Jail

While there are some of us who fully expect to be arrested at some point, this isn’t the case for most people who end up arrested. Most of the time, the people getting arrested each day have just forgotten about parking tickets, failed to appear in court, or made a simple mistake. And since they aren’t planning to end up in custody, they are not ready to deal with the reality.

But the team at Herbert Bail Bonds is ready, and we have the knowledge and experience needed to get you out of jail quickly. We have been doing so for Highland residents for more than 45 years. When you work with us, you get back to life in minimal time and with minimal stress to you. Just give us a call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

General Information About Highland Jail

Highland Jail is located inside the sheriff’s station, which is located at 26985 East Baseline in Highland, California. You can contact them at 909-425-9793. The jail keeps office hours of 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.

The Highland Sheriff’s Station is the busiest station in the County of San Bernardino, logging more arrests, calls for service, and reports per duty than any other. Despite how busy this station is, the jail is not designed to hold many inmates at one time. It holds less than 30 inmates at a time and the station works to keep it from reaching capacity, transferring inmates to the larger detention centers instead.

Highland Jail is a Type I facility. It is only allowed to keep an inmate for 96 hours, after which the inmate must be transferred or released. It is rare for an inmate to be held that long; most are moved within just a few hours.

When an inmate is transferred out of Highland Jail, they are taken to one of three facilities: Central Detention Center in the City of San Bernardino, High Desert Detention Center in Adelanto, and West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga. Because these facilities process many inmates each day, their processing times are longer. It is best that you post bail while still at Highland Jail, otherwise you may end up spending up to an extra day in custody.

Posting Bail at Highland Jail

Highland Jail is located in San Bernardino County, which means it follows the rules and regulations set by the San Bernardino County Department of Corrections. The county has decided that all inmates are eligible for bail unless they meet the criteria for denial, which are as follows:

  •         The arrest warrant states that bail is not allowed.
  •         A court order has been made that states bail is not allowed.
  •         The bail schedule states that the crime the inmate is accused of is not eligible for bail.
  •         The inmate is under the influence and could pose a danger to self or public and must remain in custody until sober.

If an inmate is determined to be eligible for bail, it can be posted as soon as the amount is set. The posting of bail can be done independently or with the help of a bail bondsmen, like Herbert Bail Bonds.      

Understanding Bail Bonds

When you are booked at Highland Jail, you will find out if you have been deemed eligible for bail. If you are eligible, you will then be told how much bail is and where you can pay it. The amount is set by the San Bernardino County Bail Schedule and cannot be changed unless you are charged with an additional crime or the charges are dropped.

In our experience, many people do not understand how bail works. Television and movies have given them the idea that they just pay bail and walk free. While it is true that it gives you your freedom, this freedom could be temporary depending on the outcome of your case. Also, it can be revoked if you fail to show up at your court appearances. Should you miss a court appearance, your bail will be kept by the courts and you will have a warrant issued for your arrest.

Posting Bail Yourself vs Hiring a Bondsman

As you know, posting bail on behalf of others is our business. As such, you probably expect us to tell you that posting bail yourself is not the way to go. However, we won’t. If you have the money on hand and you can survive without it until your case is closed, there is nothing wrong with posting bail yourself. Is this the right choice for you? There are a few things to consider.

First, understand that the bail you pay is gone until your case is closed. This could take a few weeks. It could also take a few years. For most people, this takes several months. You have to ask yourself if you can actually survive without the money for as long as it might take for the case to be closed.

Next, consider how long it might take you to get the cash. While you may have the money in the bank, Highland Jail doesn’t accept checks or credit. If you are arrested on a day the banks are closed, you and your loved ones may not be able to get enough money together until the banks are open again. And if it’s a holiday weekend, you will be waiting an extra day.

If you cannot live without the money indefinitely or you cannot get the money together quickly and want out of custody now, working with a bail bondsman is the option available to you. When you work with a bail bondsman, you pay only 10% of the cost of bail, or 8% in special circumstances. The fee charged by a bail bondsman will not be returned to you even once the case is closed, but for many, losing that 8% or 10% is better than being stuck in jail or not having access to the full amount for an extended period of time.
