What Jail Is My Friend In?

An arrest can take you by surprise, especially when it involves a loved one or a friend. You may be worried and wonder what has happened and where they have gone. At Double “O” Bonding, we know that this can be a stressful time. Gathering all the information you need on how best to help this person is bad enough, but then there is the matter of what you can actually do to help. First thing first, you need to know where they are being held so that you can act appropriately and contact the correct people to work on their release.

If Your Friend Is In Jail, Reach Out To The Station To Find Where They Are.

When a person has been arrested, there are many factors that play a role in where they end up being held, such as where the charge occurred and where they may have been at the time of arrest. All of this information may not be available to you at first, depending on what your friend or loved one has relayed. What can you do? Checking with local police departments and, depending on where they are in their case, inmate searches can allow you to find the person you are looking for. There are many different jailing locations and lockups in the area. When searching, it is important that you remain patient as some files and systems may not have been immediately updated. Remember that the person you are speaking with will provide you with the information you are in need of but may need a moment to pull the most up to date information. Also, remain polite, otherwise you may not only not receive the information you need, you may reflect poorly on your friend.

What Can You Do To Help?

Once you have identified where your loved one or friend is being held, there are a couple of things you can do to help with this situation. Contact their family to let them know of the location, allowing for more avenues of help for this individual. You can do some preliminary research on lawyers for them if you know what their charge is, reducing the field to a select few that may be the most beneficial to their case. Knowing their charge is important for this as you want to be sure to only look at lawyers that are familiar or specialize in this type of case. Finally, you can also help your friend by getting them bail or helping them get the bail they need. Getting bail bonds from a local bondsman can get them out from behind bars, allowing them to make the best case they can and prepare for their day in court. Double “O” Bonding is here to help with bail services and are happy to speak with you about your or your friend’s situation in Athens, GA and the surrounding area. Want to get started?
