If you have never needed to help bail a friend or loved one out of one of the Ventura County jails before you are likely unfamiliar with how the process works. You should know that the arrest, booking and bail bonds process often takes between 8 and 12 hours from start to finish.
When someone is arrested they will first be transported to the jail to be booked and processed. They will have their photographs and fingerprints taken, their information will be entered into the computer system and they will undergo a national background check and warrant screen. Their fingerprints will be submitted to the Department of Justice (DOJ) and it often takes the DOJ between 4 and 6 hours to return their results to the jail. The jail will not allow a defendant to post bail until this step is complete. Once the bond is posted, it will then take the jail another 4 to 6 hours to process the defendant out of the system.
