In part one of this two-part blog series, we discussed the basics and importance of attempting to secure a jail release before a transfer to a larger county facility takes place. Whether through bail or a bond, the timing of friends or loved ones here can play a huge role in how long someone is incarcerated.
At Beehive Bail Bonds, we’re here to offer 24-hour bail bond services to anyone looking for a speedy, simple release. There are several distinct reasons why securing such a release in a timely manner is important – in today’s blog, we’ll go through a few additional areas you should consider while prioritizing speed and efficiency in this realm.
For those who are arrested or incarcerated while employed, one of the primary concerns with securing a quick release is not missing work. Failure to appear on the job for more than a day or two can often lead to dismissal or major discipline, and losing one’s job will only add to the stress and considerable financial strain that’s already present in these cases.
Through proper, timely use of a bail bondsman, however, you can ensure your friend or loved one gets out and is able to return to work without any issue. In non-felony cases, the incarcerated individual likely won’t even be required to report their incarceration to their boss, at least not until a later date (in some cases). Even in situations where a superior is made aware of the arrest, securing a quick release will show commitment to the job.
We talked about several differences between smaller holding facilities and larger county jails in part one of this blog series, and another major differentiation point here is the amount of paperwork facing staff. Larger county facilities are often overrun with paperwork and details in their computer system, the result of aging systems and hundreds of inmates’ worth of data to hold and update.
This means that if you wait too long to call a bondsman, allowing your friend or loved one to be transferred to the county, there will be more paperwork and details to go through when release time comes.
Finally, the chief reason for attempting to secure a quick, simple bond or bail situation after you or someone you love is arrested? To reduce the stress and anxiety of being incarcerated. Going to jail, along with the events that often precede it, can be a pressure-filled experience that impacts many inmates’ mental health in major ways. The faster someone can get out and return to normal life, the better for their sanity.
