LASD Inmate Locator
Agua Dulce is designated as an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County and it is patrolled by deputies working out of the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station. When arrested, the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station will be an arrestee’s immediate destination. There, they will undergo booking and process, after which bail will be set and it will be possible to obtain their release via bail bond.
The on-site jail at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station is designed only for the short-term housing of inmates. So, if an inmate is not released within 72-hours, it is likely that he or she will be transferred to one of the larger jails in downtown Los Angeles. Men will be sent to Twin Towers Correctional Facility while women are transported to the Lynwood Jail in Los Angeles. Once transferred, inmates will likely spend at least an additional 12 to 24-hours in custody as they are processed in to their new location. Transfer can often be avoided, though, if the bail bond application process is begun and the bond is posted while the inmate is still located at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station jail.
Booking and Processing
Booking and processing is the procedure in which an arrestee will have their photograph taken, fingerprints recorded and a national background check will be conducted. Once this process is complete, bail is set for those who are eligible.
Just about everyone is eligible for bail, since it’s guaranteed by the 8th Amendment of the US Constitution. The few who may find themselves ineligible, though, are usually individuals who pose a significant threat to the community if released, or who have skipped out on bail before.
Options for Release
Bail bonds aren’t the only way to get someone out of jail. Depending on the number and nature of the crimes that they’re charged with, it’s possible for them to be released via a few different options.
- Cash Bonds – When bail is set, it’s possible to obtain an inmate’s release by paying the full amount of bail to the court clerk. If the inmate fulfills all of their court obligations, then the money will be refunded minus any relevant fees. If they do not, then the full amount of bail is forfeited to the courts and a warrant will be issued for the defendant’s arrest.
- Property Bonds – If a person doesn’t have the cash to bail someone out, it’s possible to put up a piece of property instead. The owner of the property must hold at least 150% the cost of bail as equity in the property for it to even be considered, and the courts are very thorough in their appraisal. A property bond can take anywhere from 2 or more weeks to get someone out of custody.
- Own Recognizance – “O.R.” is when an arrestee is granted their release and obligated to provide a written promise to return to court at the appointed date and time.
- Citation Release – Being “cited out” is a lot like being released on “O.R.,” but it does not require a written promise to return to court. Citation releases are usually reserved for minor, non-violent crimes and infractions.
The Bail Bond Process
Bail bonds are far and away the most common method people use to get friends and loved one’s out of custody. They’re cheaper than cash bonds because they only cost 10% of the total bail amount and they’re faster than property bonds because there’s no appraisal process and red tape to be navigated through.
To begin the bail bond process, it starts by giving us a call and providing the name, birth date and date and time of arrest of the person you want to bail out. We will use the information you provide to locate him or her within the system and verify their eligibility for bail. Then, we have you fill out the short, simple bail bond application forms and sign the indemnitor’s agreement. Last, we provide you with a receipt and send an agent to the jail to post the bond. Your friend or loved one will then be released as soon as possible.
If you’re unable to meet with us in person to fill out the forms, we can very easily complete the bail bond application process via phone, fax or email. No matter where you’re located (even if it’s out of the country), we can still get your friend or loved one out of jail fast.
The cost of a bail bond is regulated by the California Department of Insurance and is not to exceed 10% of the total bail amount. Therefore, if bail is set at $25,000, the cost of a bail bond will be $2,500.
We accept major debit/credit cards, including Master Card, American Express, Visa and Discover as well as cash, checks (business or personal checks), money orders, bank account transfers and money wire.
We also provide several flexible payment plans for families and friends who would care to finance a bail bond. No matter how you choose to pay, we never include any additional fees, charges or interest. You pay only the state-mandated cost of 10%, that’s it.
