A lot of people out there think that once the bond is posted, their loved one is free to go that very instant. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Sometimes, the release process can take several hours, and it all depends on where the person is being held.
Different jails operate differently. Some are larger, and therefore deal with a lot of inmates and paperwork. Others jails are better staffed and have better funding, which can help them process paperwork faster. All of this factors into how quickly a jail can process the release of an inmate.
Jails like Men’s Central in Los Angeles, and West Valley Detention Center in San Bernardino are larger facilities that house hundreds of inmates. They take longer to process someone’s release compared to small, local stations.
