You will get put in a holding cell. If the jail is busy, you will have to wait, sometimes for many hours, before you get processed.
First, you will have to answer a bunch of questions, like what is your full name, home address, birthdate and a contact person, and they’ll also ask about your mental and medical history. Next, you’ll be given an inmate ID number and your fingerprints will be taken. Then, all of your personal property will be taken from you and stored until you are discharged.
They will let you use the phone in order 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 able to wear your street clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you will be issued a jail jumpsuit.
When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged will take between 15 minutes to all day. In other words the faster you can post bail, the quicker you can get out of jail.

You may be required to be on the inmate’s visitation list in order to send them money, and be aware that they may have a limit on how much you deposit at one time, like $200-300 at a time, or a limit on how much money may be in the inmate’s account at one time.
Some of the money transfer firms being used by various facilities include JPay, MoneyGram, AccessCorrections, OffenderConnect, Touchpayonline, JailATM, WU, smartdeposit, and tigercommissary.
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.
