No one is prepared to be arrested. Most of us go through life assuming that we will never be on the wrong side of the law. However, accidents happen, police officers make mistakes, and you may find yourself in handcuffs before you know what’s happening. Not knowing where you are being transported can be terrifying. Not knowing where to find a recently arrested family member can also be terrifying. Thankfully, with a little help from Balboa Bail Bonds, you’ll be able to find your loved one quickly.

San Diego County is large, with over 3 million residents. As such, it is home to many detention facilities, including jails and prisons. The key difference between a jail and a prison is which type of inmate each one holds. A jail is for people who have been convicted of misdemeanors, such as traffic violations, and who are serving a sentence that is less than one year long. Prisons are for inmates convicted of felonies, such as those convicted of domestic violence or child pornography possession, and who will be serving a sentence longer than a year.
Someone who was just arrested will almost always be booked and held in a jail. However, an arrestee waiting for trial may be taken to prison if the local jails are overcrowded, or if they are considered a danger to the other inmates and need more intensive security.
Jails and prisons located in San Diego County include:
- Facility 8 Detention Facility
- Georgia F. Bailey Detention Facility
- South Bay Detention Facility
- San Diego Central Jail
- Vista Detention Facility
- Descanso Detention Facility
- R.J. Donovan Correctional Facility
- San Diego City Jail
If your loved one has been arrested, it is very likely that they are being held at one of the above facilities. Of course, each of these facilities can hold hundreds of inmates. Calling up each one and trying to find your loved one will not be easy and will likely take you a great deal of time. However, there are people you can turn to for help.
After your loved one has been arrested, you may be at a loss on what to do. Where were they taken? How do you find them? What do you do when you finally locate them? This is a difficult and emotionally taxing process for anyone to go through. However, you don’t need to shoulder the burden alone. In fact, we can take it on for you.
At Balboa Bail Bonds, we are able to find inmates in a matter of minutes. We can locate any inmate in the entire state of California. What may take hours for you will be a quick phone call for us. We have the tools you need to find your loved one, and, even better, once we have helped you find your loved one, we can help you get them back home.
When people hear the word “bail,” their minds often wander to cop dramas that depict bail as something only the rich can enjoy. That is far from the truth. When you work with a compassionate bail bond agency, such as Balboa Bail Bonds, your bail should always be affordable. We at Balboa Bail Bonds specialize in providing fast, flexible payment plans to all of our clients. We work with you and your budget, not against.
When you hire one of our experienced agents, you will never be charged for posting fees, processing fees, and certainly not mobile service fees. In fact, the only thing you have to pay is the bail bond premium, which is 10% of the total bail amount. If your bail was set at $5,000, you would only owe us $500, so long as the bail did not become forfeit. Of course, $500 may still be a little tight for some families, so we work with you to determine a payment plan for your wallet.
If you need help finding a loved one after they have been arrested, look no further than Balboa Bail Bonds. We can find your loved one in a matter of minutes and give them the support they need to get out of jail and back home where they belong. To find out more about your options and speak to one of our agents about starting the bail process, call (619) 760-2222 today. We are ready to help.
