If a friend or loved one has been arrested and taken into custody in Santa Clarita, it can be a scary ordeal for everyone involved. Where are they going? When will they get out? Will they be okay? The questions and anxiety can be incredibly difficult to deal with. The first thing you’ll want to do is find out where your friend or loved one is being held. If they were recently arrested in or around Santa Clarita, they’re probably at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station. That’s just a short-term holding facility though, so if they were arrested more than 3 days ago, they may have been transferred to a larger, long-term holding facility. A quick and easy way to do that is to use one of the online search tools, like the LASD inmate locator. If you have trouble finding them, you can always give us a call. A bail bondsman from our staff is available 24/7 to help you out.
Once they’ve been located, you’ll know whom to call to try and get information about them or to look into visitation. If they take any medications, make sure to check with the jail staff to ensure that the inmate informed them. If not, be sure to get into contact with their prescribing doctor so that he or she can inform the jail staff. There aren’t any privacy laws that restrict medical professionals from sharing that type of information with jail staff.
Finally, once they’ve been located, and their eligibility for bail has been established, you can begin the bail bond application process. Of course, it’s possible to start bailing a defendant out of jail shortly after their arrest, though it can sometimes take time for family and friends to become aware of the person’s status.
