MENLO PARK POLICE DEPARTMENT INFORMATION
The Menlo Park Police Department is proud to serve and protect the residents of the City of Menlo Park. When someone is arrested in Menlo Park, inmates may be transported to the Menlo Park Police Department. While there, they will be booked into the system.
The booking process typically consists of fingerprinting, background check, warrant check and entering their information into the computer system. Once this is complete, arrestees may be transported to the San Mateo County Jails in Redwood City.
MENLO PARK BAIL BONDS
When you contact our company, you’ll always speak one-on-one with one of our professional and caring bail bond agents who’ll listen carefully to your situation. Beginning the process started is simple: all of the paperwork can be taken care of quickly and easily from the comfort of your home or office. All you need is a computer, FAX machine or phone.
In California, the legal bail bond fee is ordinarily 10%. For example, should the bail amount be $20,000, it would cost $2,000 to use a bail bondsman. We never charge any additional finance charges, taxes or fees. We accept all major credit cards and, very often, we won’t need any collateral.
Once the bail bond paperwork has been completed, our licensed bondsman will “post” the bail bond at the detention facility or jail which will result in the release of the defendant. We can typically complete the entire bail bond process within 1 to 2 hours. Please be aware that we cannot complete the bail bond process until all the arrest and booking procedures are completed by the jail.
The jail's timing is out of our control, which can be frustrated both for you and for us. Once a bond has been posted, it can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours for release from the San Mateo County Jail. It’s important to know that if the defendant is not bailed out, he or she will generally remain in custody until the matter has been resolved in court.
It would truly be unwise to post a bail bond for someone who you think may "skip bail" or not appear for their court dates. If this happens, you would be responsible for paying the entire amount of their bail. No one wants that on their head, especially in this financial climate.
When someone skips bail it is a criminal offense and can result in further charges and the revocation of their bail. It is good to keep in mind that the majority of bail bond issues can be easily resolved. They rarely escalate beyond a phone call to our company to straighten out the situation.
We can immediately service any bail bondS in San Mateo County and have your friend or your loved one released today. Feel free to call us toll-free at (888) 651-5100 to speak with a licensed bondsman about Menlo Park Bail. We’re in your corner.
