Ventura County Jail Booking Process
|Posted on January 16, 2016 at 1:29 AM||comments ()|
When we receive calls from the Ventura County Jail, they are routed through a vendor that requires an account to accept collect calls from inmates. It is one of the frustrating things families have to experience when it takes a while to hear from them because they have to setup an account.
Be aware that the majority of the County jails have a phone system that requires one to open an account. Many times I receive calls from the Ventura County Jail for posting bail, and discover that they are unable to get in touch with there family to make arraignments for bail. This is were I am able to communicate with inmates families, and sometimes able to connect a 3 way calling so they may speak with family while I am able to explain the process as well.
When accepting calls from any jail, keep in mind that they are recorded. Keep the conversations to matters in regards to posting bail, or things that have no relation to the reason you are in jail. As the saying goes, "Lose lips sink ships".
Lastly, be prepared to have a credit card to open the account to accept your family or friend calls from the jail. Most require a minimum of $25 for accepting calls. For more information, contact the jail facility were your family or friend is in custody to determine who the vendor is as many county jails use different vendors to operate the jails phone systems

Common bail bond questions
|Posted on September 24, 2015 at 2:47 AM||comments ()|
I receive calls daily and in doing so I have listed the top 3 common questions asked.
1. I have a family or friend arrested, but I do not know what is going on or how much his bail is. Can you help me find out?
When a family or friend has been arrested, they are usually taken to the local police station or county jail for booking. This process can take anywhere from 2 to 6 hours, and during this time we will not be able to obtain bail information until booking has been complete. Because of this timely process, we will monitor his booking process and after they are booked, we will contact the customer with the charges, first court date and bail information if they wish to bail out the detainee.
2. I have not heard from my family or friend after they were taken by the police. What can I do, or what is going on?
As mentioned earlier, the booking process takes a while and the detainee will not be able to use the phone for several hours. You will have to be patient, but as part of our service, we will monitor the booking process and let you know what your options are in contacting your family or friend.
3. What does it cost to post bail? After verifying the bail amount, the bond company has a regulated fee that has to be charged, and that is 10% of the bail amount set. This for example would be if someone has a $10,000 bail set, then the legal fee that will be charged is $1000, which is non-refundable regardless of the outcome of the case.
