Bailing out of the Long Beach Jail, By Bail Bondsman in Long Beach Ca

Being a Lakewood / Long Beach based Bail Bondsman working with All American Bail Bonds we often receive calls from the concerned loved ones of those who have been arrested in Long Beach and are being held at the Long Beach jail. One of the main concerns for those loved ones is getting the arrestees out of jail as quickly as possible; this blog entry is dedicated to those individuals.
We at All American Bail Bonds have multiple offices throughout Los Angeles County but I do believe working the Long Beach area can be the most frustrating. The booking process in the Long Beach jail can be up to 12 hours and God forbid if their booking systems are down it can be up 24 hours or longer.

When one is arrested in Long Beach they do have the opportunity to contact a bail bondsman from inside the jail or they can use the phone to contact a friend or family member, only collect calls are allowed, but regardless of what they decide they will have to remain in custody for as long as it takes until the booking process has been completed and they have been cleared for bail. If the inmate remains in custody on an open charge (new alleged criminal act) they will go to court in two business days to the Long Beach court house located on the South side of the jail. The address for Long Beach court house is the following:

South District
Long Beach Courthouse
415 West Ocean Blvd.
Long Beach, Ca. 90802

If the arrestee has an out of city warrant he/she will be transferred to either the Los Angeles County Jail or if the warrant is out of a city that has a local non county agency than the may be transferred to that city’s police department.

If one does elect to bail and is in a position to post bail on a new open charge they will find themselves with a new court date between 7 to 30 days out. If the arrestee bails out on a warrant they can expect to have their court date scheduled in approximately 30 days.

It should be noted that non trusty inmates are allowed visiting from Thursday thru Sunday and trusties daily.
the following are the visiting hours for the Long Beach Jail:

Felony 10:30 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. Thursday through Sunday
Misdemeanor 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday
Trusty 1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m. Daily

Please note the following requirements for visiting inmates as listed by the Long Beach Police Departments website.

• All visitations are done via a video conferencing system at PD headquarters (400 West Broadway)

• Visitors may not have any outstanding warrants, verified through a criminal records check

• An inmate may have two visitations per day, but the second visitation is not a guarantee

• In order to visit, you may not have been in our custody within the last six months

  1. Waiting 2 business days to go to court can seem like an eternity. And it actually is when you're locked up. Better to call a bondsman for sure.
