The San Bernardino Department of Corrections Can Be Tricky
Lake Arrowhead is a small, unincorporated area of San Bernardino County, having just over 12,000 residents calling it home. Due to its size and unincorporated status, it does not have its own detention center or jail. Instead, individuals taken into custody while in Lake Arrowhead are taken to nearby sheriff’s stations based on whichever is nearest the area where the individual is arrested.
These stations do not have the amenities needed to hold inmates for extended periods of time. They are Type I facilities, which means they are restricted to keeping inmates for 96 hours or less. In most cases, the facilities choose not to house inmates for more than a few hours, transferring them to larger detention centers as soon as possible.
While these larger detention centers offer greater amenities, they have slower processing times. This means you will spend a long time waiting to be processed in, and when we arrive to post bail, it will take a long time to complete the process for getting you out. Whenever possible, it is best to get you out of custody while you are still at the station rather than the larger detention center.
If you are transferred before we are able to secure your release, we are still able to help and will work faster than the competition. Whether you are at Central Detention Center, High Desert Detention Center, or West Valley Detention Center, we can come post bail and get you out of custody.
We Have the Experience You Need
Here at Herbert Bail Bonds, we emphasize our speed, but you might be wondering how we are able to offer such speedy results. After all, the system moves as fast as it moves, right?
While it’s true that there are limits to how fast we can get things done, we do have ways of working faster than others. Because we know the processes and paperwork well, we are able to move through forms and lines quickly. And since we know the people at the stations and detention centers, we have established relationships that inspire trust and help us get things done. We have worked with the San Bernardino County Department of Corrections for close to 5 decades, and those years have made a major difference in the results we can secure.
We Make the Process Convenient to You
With Herbert Bail Bonds, you don’t need to bend over backwards to get the service you need. Instead, we do whatever we can to make it all easy for you. The biggest way we do this is by coming to you to get everything going. Whether you are the individual in custody or a loved one, we can come to the jail, courthouse, substation, or even your home.
In fact, you do not even need to see us in person to work with us. We can set up an agreement via fax, allowing you to help a loved one from states away. For us, what matters most is getting you out of custody and back to your life.
Paying for Your Bail Bond
Paying for a bail bond is pretty simple, and certainly more affordable than posting bail on your own. Here in California, the cost of a bail bond is just 10% of the cost of bail. This fee is fixed by the California Department of Insurance and cannot be raised. However, there are limited circumstances in which this amount can be lowered. You are eligible to pay just 8% of the bail amount if you meet any of the following items:
- 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 cases where the cost of bail is very high, even 10% can be too much to afford. However, Herbert Bail Bonds, as always, is ready to work with you. We can offer flexible financing and repayment plan options. We also accept collateral, approaching this option on a case-by-case basis.
