Next, you will be issued an inmate number and you will get fingerprinted. Then, all personal property will be taken from you and stored until you get released from jail.
They will let you use the telephone to get in touch with a member of your family, friend, or loved one.
If you are expected to be released quickly, you might be allowed to skip the jumpsuit and keep wearing your own clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you you will have to wear a jail uniform – the jumpsuit.
Once bail has been posted, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail will take anywhere from 15 minutes to quite a few hours.

If an inmate has fines or are required to pay restitution then they will be subject to garnishment of their commissary/trust account. If the inmate has a garnishment, then money to pay them will be taken from the inmateâ€™s bank account. In some cases it may be a percentage or the entire amount of the obligation, but the actual percentage depends on the circumstances. We recommend that inmates talk to the counselor at their facility and try to find out. You can also try to make an arrangement so that only a percentage of your commissary funds are taken, instead of all your funds take at one time.

These products include clothes, shoes, small snacks and other food items, as well as hygiene products like soap, shampoo, and disposable razors for shaving.
