What happens after I’ve been arrested?
The Bookings Process is a procedure that is done after someone has been arrested for an offence….
- After the arrest, the officer brings you in and removes your personal belongings and inventories them.
- Next begins the processing. The Detention Officer will ask your personal information; name, date of birth, address, any mental health or medical issues, etc.
- The Detention Officer then gets information from the officer; charges, ticket number, any kind of holding information, and it is all stored in the computerized booking system.
- You will then be taken to the Identification Room; here your photos and fingerprints will be taken. Anyone brought in on any kind of charge will be photographed.
- After that, you will be allowed to make any kind of phone calls needed.
- From here, you will be placed into a cell until the following:
- You bond out or have a family member bond you out at any point during that day/night.
- You can wait until the next morning at 9am at your hearing.
- You’re transported (if need be.)
