Lemon Grove is the home of an amazing tourist attraction: the world’s largest lemon. The city boasts what is considered the best weather in the world. With a population of just over 26,000, Lemon Grove’s mild and comfortable climate makes it a perfect suburban setting for many of San Diego County’s residents. The diverse ethnicity of the small city and its many community resources makes it an idyllic location for both tourists and residents.
Unfortunately, Lemon Grove suffers from an unusually high crime rate with more crime than 62% of the cities in California. People in Lemon Grove have a 1 in 43 chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime. The police force of Lemon Grove is contracted from the San Diego Police Department, which provides 21 sworn officers along with hired professionals and volunteers to keep the city safe.
With the high crime rate and a relatively small police department, it’s no wonder that law enforcement is proactive, with officers taking any opportunity to arrest those they think may have committed a crime, or they consider are likely to do so.
The fastest way out of jail once you’ve been arrested is getting released on bail. Our agents at Balboa Bail Bonds start monitoring your case and guiding you toward your rapid release as soon as you call us. Unlike other bail bond agents, our service begins even before bail is set by providing you clear-cut direction and guidance on what to do and what to say, followed by posting your bail and getting you out so you can return home. The information you provide law enforcement can impact the amount of bail set, so contacting us and a lawyer as your first phone calls is vital.
Many people think they can’t afford bail but are surprised when they find out about our flexible payment and financing options, low 10% premium, and rebates for US veterans. We want you out of jail fast so you can start building a defense with your attorney from the comfort of your own home.
Being arrested is typically a terrifying and challenging experience. If you’re arrested in the City of Lemon Grove, you will likely be taken to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department Lemon Grove Station located at 3240 Main St, Lemon Grove, CA 91945. There you will be booked and placed in a temporary holding cell pending bail and release, or transportation to a more secure facility.
Bail is usually set in a preliminary hearing with a judge, generally over a live video feed, where the judge evaluates your case and sets bail. The factors that judges usually consider are:
- The severity of the alleged crime(s)
- Your criminal record
- Any perceived flight risk
Those who have local jobs, homes, and families often get lower bail set, because these types of things show stability and that you are less likely to flee and avoid the law.
Getting bail set and posted within the first 24-48 hours of your arrest is critical, as otherwise, you will likely be transported to the more secure South Bay Detention Facility located at 500 3rd Ave Suite 100, Chula Vista, CA 91910. You will then be held at the detention facility until bail is posted, the charges are dropped, or you are acquitted during your trial.
Your court hearings and your trial will likely be held at the South County Regional Center located at 500 3rd Ave Suite 100, Chula Vista, CA 91910. When you are released on bail, part of the legal agreement is that you attend all required court appearances and follow court instructions. If you follow this agreement, your bail will be exonerated (released), and you will only have to pay our 10% premium.
If you violate the bail agreement, you must contact your bond agent immediately as you are at risk of having your bail forfeit and being forced to pay the entire amount. Our agents are trained to take the needed steps to prevent your bail from being forfeit, but only if you maintain honesty and routine communication with them.
We have agents standing by 24/7 to help you get out of jail fast. We believe that everyone deserves a chance, and we treat all our clients with compassion, understanding, and respect. All our agents are bilingual (English and Spanish) and have a minimum of five years in the field. When you hire us, you will never deal with a “rookie” agent – we only hire the best, experienced agents to get the job done fast. We are affordable, fast, and easy to work with.
