ARREST AT THE SANTA RITA JAIL
Those arrested in Dublin and surrounding communities are often transferred to the Alameda County Santa Rita Detention Center, known as the Santa Rita Jail. Upon arriving, their personal items are taken from defendants and they are photographed, fingerprinted, and processed for warrants. Mental and physical diagnostics are conducted and decisions are made regarding the well being of the inmate.
At some point, arrestees will be transferred to some type of holding cell. If bail gets posted, then the inmate will have their personal items returned and will be released.
We advise our clients to be patient. Release from the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, CA can take anywhere from 2-8 hours, which may seem long, but is actually abbreviated compared to other jails in California. Our bail bond company cannot control how quickly a jail inmate is released.
The Santa Rita Jail is the 5th largest jail in the entire United States and is the primary holding facility for those detained in all of Alameda County. Even though bail can be posted anytime day or night, it's important to know that in general, the larger the jail, the longer it takes for an inmate to be released. Also, be aware that inmates will have limited access to phones for purposes of making outgoing calls. No incoming calls to the jail are allowed.
Those wishing to send mail to an inmate at the (Santa Rita) Dublin, CA jail must follow strict guidelines. All mail must have the inmates name and personal file number (PFN). The mail must have the address of the sender on the exterior or the mailing. Note that all mail is subject to search (however mail that is coming from the defendant's legal counsel or other government entity will be opened in the presence of the inmate).
If you choose to visit an inmate, you should be conscious of strict guidelines. You may want to contact the jail prior to your visit.
THE DECISION TO USE A BAIL BONDSMAN
When it comes to choosing a bail bondsman, you should choose carefully. Over the years, many scams have involved unlicensed agents, illegal solicitation and bail agents receiving money without performing or posting the bail bond.
Make sure you choose a bail bondsman that is licensed in California and has been in business for a while. We hope you will choose our company, but we do recommend you do your research prior to choosing any legal professional.
If you decline to bail somebody out, they often will remain in custody until the matter is resolved in court. Inmates are often transferred to court in handcuffs and jail jumpsuits. Most inmates find it difficult to make good legal choices in such a restrictive environment.
If a defendant bails out of jail, they have a much better chance of making better decisions regarding their legal future.
