Located northeast of San Diego, El Cajon is the sixth-largest metropolitan in the greater San Diego area. Boasting a diverse community with safe and attractive neighborhoods, El Cajon is known for its many parks, recreation centers, and commercial districts. El Cajon is also the home of Taylor Guitars, one of the world’s premier guitar manufacturers, and countless other local and international businesses.
Keeping the city safe for citizens and businesses does, however, come at a cost. El Cajon is known for having a first-class and very active police department that deals with more than 2,800 yearly crimes, of which 430 on average are violent crimes, the rest of which are property crimes (burglary, larceny, automobile theft, and others).
Law enforcement only needs probable cause to arrest you – which means you can be arrested with little existing evidence. This can be the result of simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, the police finding trace amounts of illegal substances in your vehicle, or a false accusation against you. You can easily find yourself in police custody – scared, confused, and worried about what will happen next.
If you have been arrested in El Cajon, use one of your phone calls to contact Balboa Bail Bonds right away. If bail has not yet been set, we will immediately start monitoring your case free of charge and guide you through the process of getting the lowest possible bail set, getting you released.
The El Cajon Police Department located on 100 Civic Center, El Cajon, CA 92020 is where arrestees are booked immediately upon an arrest. Bail is set at a court hearing, and the total amount typically depends on the severity of the alleged crime, your criminal record, and whether you are considered a possible flight risk.
Low-security jails such as El Cajon’s typically holds prisoners for only 24 to 48 hours before transferring them to medium-security detention centers. If possible, getting bail set and posted before this happens is ideal, and much more comfortable. Otherwise, you may end up four miles away at the Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility at 451 Riverview Pkwy, Santee, CA 92071, which is run by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Office.
