Canton Police Jail Policies and Procedures
The jail intake process at the Canton Police Jail is made up of the following steps:
You will be placed in a holding cell. If there are a lot of arrests, you will have to wait, sometimes for many hours, before you get processed.
First you will answer a bunch of questions, like your full name, your address, date of birth and an emergency contact, and also, you will also be asked about your psychological and medical history. Next, you will be issued an inmate ID and you will be fingerprinted. Then, all personal property will be taken away from you and stored until you get discharged from jail.
They will let you make a telephone call to call a member of your family, friend, or somebody else who can help you get out.
If you are expected to be released shortly, you will be allowed to keep wearing your own clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you will be issued a jumpsuit.
Once you are able to post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged can take anywhere between 10 minutes to quite a few hours. In other words the faster bail is posted, the sooner you will get out of jail. Also, it depends on whether or not you’ve got a bond amount or if a judge still needs to determine how much your bail will be. For minor offenses, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. If you have served a sentence in jail and know the release date, you should plan to get discharged in the morning.

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.
