Bail Bonds DIRECT is a fully licensed and bonded professional business. One of the most trusted names in the bail bond industry. Our staff of Bail Bond Agents are professionals who know the Reseda jails.
Whether a person has been arrested for domestic violence, DUI, DWI or any other offense the process is the same. Persons taken into custody by the Reseda Police or Sheriff's Department will be held at either the Reseda Police Station Jail, Sheriff's Station Jail or will be transfered to the Los Angeles County Jail (IRC) and will be kept there until their first court date called the "Arraignment." Bail is allowed to be posted in any facility 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.
Before a bail bond is turned in and accepted, the arrestee must pass a background check through "Live Scan", which is a machine that is linked to a county, state and national database. That database will notify the authorities of any possible holds, warrants, or aliases that might prevent release or increase the total bail amount of an arrestee. Once the results of the Live Scan come back from the various government agencies, that person is then "cleared" to bond out. At this time, a jailor will review and accept a Bail Bond for an arrestee and release them on the Bail Bond.
From the time a Bail Bond is turned in, it takes between 30 minutes and 3 hours for a release depending on the facility where the person is being held. Release times do vary based on the workload of the Reseda jail's staff as well as the type of facility. Once out, a person will need to complete his or her part of the paper work, take a picture, and make sure to show up to each and every court date thereafter. It is recommended that you hire a Reseda criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
In addition to being bail bonds agents we are proud members of the Reseda community.
Reseda began as a farm town named 'Marian' which began in 1912. The town was named after Marian Otis Chandler, daughter to Harrison Gray Otis, publisher of the Los Angeles Times. The cities name was changed in 1920 to Reseda, named after a North-African yellow dye plant known as the Reseda odorata. The population was 1,805 in 1930 and exploded to 16,000 in 1950. Reseda was one of the first suburbs to be developed in the San Fernando Valley just as those who has fought in World War II were returning home. It is not widely known that the 1994 Northridge Earthquake really had its epicenter in Reseda. At first, the epicenter was reported as in San Fernando, then near Northridge and finally a week later, officially pinpointed in Reseda, but unfortunately, by then, the media had dubbed it the Northridge Earthquake, and the name never went away. Reseda is home to some notable features such as the Reseda Country club, the Reseda Theatre and Reseda Park. The Country Club that was once a legendary concert venue during the punk era of the 1980s. The club hosted bands such as U2, Oingo Boingo, and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. The Reseda Theatre is a city Landmark and is due to be converted from a theatre to a food and entertainment center. As for Reseda Park, it is home to a large duck pond that lies in the center of the park, and during the 1950s and 1960s the duck pond had a boathouse attached where visitors could rent electric boats by the hour. The city is also popular among the movie, television and music industry; scenes from The Karate Kid and Terminator 2: Judgement Day have been filmed here as well as the movie Boogie Nights in which the nightclub scenes were filmed in the Country Club on Sherman Way.
