First you have to answer a number of questions, like your full legal name, your address, birthdate and an emergency contact person, and they’ll also ask you about your mental and medical history. Next, you’ll be given an inmate number and your fingerprints will be taken. Then, all of your personal property will get taken away from you and stored until you are discharged.
They will let you make a phone call in order to talk to a member of your family, friend, or somebody else who can help you get out.
If you are expected to be released quickly, they will let you wear your street 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 be discharged from jail. Getting discharged can take between 30 minutes to many hours.

When you have completed your jail sentence and are given a release date, you should expect to get discharged in the morning.
