Finding out that a friend or loved one has been arrested and taken into custody in Santa Clarita can be a frustrating and nerve-wracking experience. Especially when you’re unable to talk to them. If you can’t talk to them, how are you supposed to bail them out?

Why Find Out Bail Bonds Online?

Sometimes people need a little time to get the money together to bail someone out of jail – and that’s okay! By calling SCV Bail Bonds, we can help you discover the bail amount of your friend or loved one in custody. Or, you can follow the steps below and find out on your own.

How to Find Someone’s Bail Online

When someone is arrested and taken into custody in Santa Clarita, they are usually taken to the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station to undergo booking and processing. Once that process is complete, they are held at the jail for up to  72 hours. During this period, the defendant can be bailed out any time day or night from the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station jail.

After the 72-hour period has ended, it’s possible that the defendant is transferred to one of the larger holding facilities in downtown Los Angeles.

You can start by simply typing in “inmate lookup [county]” to be shown a series of inmate lookup tools that can help you out. The more you know about when and where your friend or loved one was arrested, the better, but working with limited information can also be effective.

What’s an Inmate Lookup Tool?

The inmate lookup tool is a helpful way to find relevant arrest information on a defendant who has been arrested. Generally, it will provide you with their name, what they are suspected of, where they’re located, and their bail amount.

If the inmate locating tool is not helping, or if you don’t have enough information to use it, other options are available to you. You may want to call the police department or sheriff’s station where they were originally arrested. The police there may help you out.

You can also contact your friend or loved one’s attorney (if they have one) to help you with locating them.

Last but not least, you can call a bail bondsman. A bail bondsman in Santa Clarita is more than capable of helping you navigate the jail system and locate your friend or loved one therein. They can also answer any questions you may have regarding how to get someone out of jail. Last, if you need SCV Bail Bonds to bail your friend or loved one out of jail, we can help you with that too.
