York Police Jail Policies and Procedures
The jail intake process at the York Police Jail is made up of each of these steps:
You will get put in a holding cell. When the jail is busy, it will take a while to get processed.
The first step is that you will have to answer a number of questions, such as what is your legal name, address, birthdate and an emergency contact person, and they’ll also ask about your psychological and medical history. Next, you will be issued an inmate ID number and you will be fingerprinted. Then, any personal property you have will get taken away from you and stored until you are released.
You will then be allowed to make a phone call so you can contact a member of your family, friend, or somebody else who can help you get out.
If you are expected to be released quickly, you might be able 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 issued jumpsuit.
Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged will take anywhere from 30 minutes to hours or even all day long. Or, simply, the faster you post bail, the quicker you will get released. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether or not you have a cash bond amount or if a magistrate has to decide on how much your bail will be. For minor offenses, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a release date, expect to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

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.

How To Save Money on Inmate Calls
Correctional facility phone service providers have a monopoly at each facility that they have a contract with, which means that they they control how much it costs to make phone calls. The profits off of all phone calls that inmates make are split with the facility, so there is no incentive for the jail or the counselors at the facility to show inmates or their family how to save money on inmate phone calls at the York Police Jail. The rates are posted and there are at least two different prices based on where the inmate is calling. The following three things will determine how much an inmate phone call will cost: Where you are located; Where your inmate is located, What type of phone number you have.
For example, if your inmate is in federal prison, if you get a new local number then this will decrease your inmate’s phone call rate from $.21 per minute to only $.06 per minute.
