Booking & Bail Bonding in Dana Point, CA
Dana Point, CA is patrolled and monitored by the Orange County Sheriff. The city does not have their own brick and mortar police department building. The city contracts all of its police services through the county of Orange Sheriff’s Department making the booking and release procedure for individuals arrested in Dana Point a little more difficult and time consuming. When an individual is arrested, the Orange County sheriff takes the person immediately to the Orange County Main Jail in Santa Ana, CA for booking and housing. Once they arrive to the county jail, they will be booked into custody which can take several hours up to 10 hours to complete.
Part of the booking process consists of obtaining the arrestee’s personal information such as name, address, phone number, employment information, and date of birth. Once the initial information is gathered, the individual is screened for an medical issues, their picture is taken and their finger prints are obtained electronically via a live scan machine. Finger prints are gather to verify the person’s identity and to initiate a back ground check. Back ground checks are required to ensure that arrestee’s have no holds, warrants or additional reason which prevent them from being released from custody on bond or O.R. (own recognizance). The jail sends finger prints out to the county, state and federal governments for screening and verification. Once the finger prints are returned, the individual is either place on hold or eligible to be released by bond or O.R. not every person is eligible for release on O.R. Some crimes, such as felony crimes, require a bail bonds to be posted to secure release. If the individual does not post bond and is not approved for O.R., they will see a judge for their first court date, also known as their arraignment, within two business day depending on the charge level. Felonies are held up to two business days and misdemeanors are sent to court after one business day.
