When we make mistakes, the best thing we can do is own up to them and face the consequences. Turning yourself over to the police is a big decision, and many have no idea what to expect when they do it. We are going to tell you the most important things to know when you turn yourself over to police custody. Whether you’re turning yourself in or you end up in a Dallas County jail, DDD Bail Bonds can get you out. We offer free quotes, and we’ll get started on your case as soon as possible.
Contact the Police Station
The process of turning yourself over to the police can vary depending on what state and county you’re in. It’s a good idea to call the station in advance and find out exactly what you need to have with you in order to get your case moving fast. Avoid turning yourself in on a Monday or Friday. These are the busiest days of the week, so it’ll take longer for the station to process your information. You should also try to come in early in the day so your information will be processed as soon as possible.
Get in Touch with a Bondsman
Having your bail bond agent in the loop before you turn yourself in can help the process once you are in custody. If your bondsman is present during your arrest, they can help expedite the determination or bail pricing so you and your co-signer can get started on your bail bond agreement right away,
Even if a bondsman is not present while you turn yourself in, having one on speed dial is beneficial. This can bring you peace of mind that you will be able to secure your release quickly.
Because you are getting ready to be arrested, keeping your own convenience in mind is crucial to making the process easier. Do not come with nice clothes and jewelry on, as you will be asked to remove it. You will be searched, so save yourself an awkward interaction or extra charge by leaving any drugs, weapons or other suspicious items at home.
Also bear in mind that you won’t be able to use your cell phone, so you’ll need to write down any important numbers, including your bondsman’s name and number, so they can begin the bail bond process as soon as your booking has finished. You cannot be released on bail until booking is done and you are in the system!
