Next, you’ll be given an inmate ID and you will get fingerprinted. Then, all personal property will be taken away from you and stored until you get discharged from jail.
You will be allowed to use the phone in order to get in touch with 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 wear your street clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you will be issued a jail uniform – the jumpsuit.
When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged takes anywhere from 10 minutes to all day long.
