If you know someone who has been arrested by a member of the Berkeley Police Department, you’ll want to contact a Santa Rita Jail bail bonds agent as quickly as possible.
Most people don’t know that the Berkeley PD building does not have a standalone jail and all detainees are transported to the Alameda County Jail to be booked and processed into the system.
Bail bonds in Berkeley can be posted at the Santa Rita Jail 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, 365-days a year.
The cost to hire a bondsman in Berkeley will depend on the defendant’s bail amount, since the cost to purchase California bail bonds will be 10%. If bail has been set at $20,000, you can expect to pay $2,000 to a Berkeley bondsman. You’ll want to keep in mind that this fee is non-refundable no matter what happens in court, so it’s not something you’ll get back.
If you have questions about how Berkeley bail bonds work or you’d like information about how to get your friend or loved one out of jail fast, call our office today at 888.224.5266.
