Booking and Release process — Knowing how it works can help you avoid mistakes
Booking and Bail in California
Whether a person has been arrested for domestic violence, DUI, DWI or any other offense the process is the same. Persons taken into custody by the Torrance Police or Sheriff’s Department will be held at either the Torrance Police Station Jail, Sheriff’s Station Jail or will be transferred to the Los Angeles County Jail (IRC) and will be kept there until their first court date called the “Arraignment.” Bail is allowed to be posted in any facility 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.
Before a bail bond is turned in and accepted, the arrestee must pass a background check through “Live Scan”, which is a machine that is linked to a county, state and national database. That database will notify the authorities of any possible holds, warrants, or aliases that might prevent release or increase the total bail amount of an arrestee. Once the results of the Live Scan come back from the various government agencies, that person is then “cleared” to bond out. At this time, a jailor will review and accept a Bail Bond for an arrestee and release them on the Bail Bond.
From the time a Bail Bond is turned in, it takes between 30 minutes and 3 hours for a release depending on the facility where the person is being held. Release times do vary based on the workload of the Torrance jail’s staff as well as the type of facility. Once out, a person will need to complete his or her part of the paper work, take a picture, and make sure to show up to each and every court date thereafter. It is recommended that you hire a Torrance criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
More About Torrance, CA
Torrance is a city located in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County and has an estimated population of 149,111 as of 2009, making it the eighth largest city in the county and the 35th largest city in the State. The city covers 1.5 miles of coastline, but is less well-known than its neighbors to the North and South, Redondo Beach and Palos Verdes. The city was started in the early 1900s by real estate developer Jared Sidney Torrance, for whom the city is named after. The city was incorporated in 1921 and its first two residential avenues, Gramercy and Andreo, are still located in what is called Old Town Torrance. The city of Torrance is also the birthplace of the American Youth Soccer Organization, or AYSO as it is more commonly known. One notable attraction in the city is that of the Del Amo Fashion Center; the mall spans 2.5 million square feet and is one of the largest malls in the country. The mall was created when the first building, the Del Amo Center, built in 1958, merged with the second building, the Del Amo Fashion Square, which was built in 1970, were merged together. The east end of the mall was demolished in 2005 to make way for a new open-air section which was opened in 2006 and houses upscale stores such as Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters. The city is also home to the annual Armed Forces Day Parade. Started in 1960, it is the longest running military parade sponsored by a city. The parade runs down Torrance Boulevard and features military vehicles, prominent community members and school marching bands. The city is the location of the Exxon/Mobile refinery which supplies most of the states gasoline. The city was once dotted by thousands of oil derricks and oil wells, but now they are uncommon. Torrance houses 24 city parks, the most popular is Wilson Park, spanning 44 acres, it has extensive sports facilities and picnic areas. In 2010, the city entered a float in the annual Tournament of Roses Parade, held in Pasadena, and was awarded the top Lathrop K. Leishman trophy for its ‘Garden of Dreams’ float; the float was judged to be the ‘Most Beautiful Non-Commercial’ float.
