Garland Detention is located at 1900 West State Street; near the intersection of Forest Lane and State Street.

The Garland Detention Center is a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week operation for the temporary confinement of pre-trial individuals involved in the judicial process, as well as those individuals serving time assessed on misdemeanor Garland Municipal Court cases. City detention centers house pre-trial prisoners, thereby holding individuals who are presumed innocent, yet require maximum security prior to trial. Pre-trial prisoners, who are unable to secure a release, will be held only a minimal time before being transported to another detention facility.

The mission of the Garland Detention Center is to provide clean and sanitary facilities for prisoners during their time of confinement. Every effort is made to provide humane treatment for each prisoner, and to insure their constitutional rights are protected while still maintaining necessary security.

Do you have a loved one in jail with a bail hearing coming up? We know that this can be an overwhelming time for you and your family, whether you signed their bail bond or not. When you don't know what to expect it can cause a great deal of worry. Understanding everything that happens at a bail hearing is the first step to relieving some of that stress.

Because we want to help make sure that the process goes smoothly, we have compiled few tips for your Texas bail bond hearing.

Preparing for Bail

The defendant should speak with their family and friends. If they can't, they should give contact information to their attorney. The time before the hearing is important to retrieve character references. Obtaining witnesses who can help confirm that the defendant is not a flight risk is crucial to help their case. They can do this by gathering records or documents that show they are involved in their community.

If you ever find yourself or a loved one in a situation where you need a bail bond, it's important to understand what types of bail bonds are available. In this blog post, you will learn about the different types of bail and how they can help your loved one be released from jail.

What Are Bail Bonds?

A bail bond is a type of bail. A judge sets bail when someone is charged with a crime. Whether the defendant's crime was a misdemeanor or felony will help the judge decide what type of bail to give them. Other factors that determine the bail is if the defendant has a criminal record, if they has close family and friends, if they are involved in the community, and much more. The judge will decide the type and the amount of the bail. If the bail is a large amount of money, a bond may be the only option. A bond is the guaranteed payment of the full amount of the bail. If you need a bail bond, you can obtain one through a bail bond agency.

Why Are Bail Bonds So Important?

Often, it takes weeks and even months before a trial will start. Most defendants, even if they are innocent, will have to wait in jail for that amount of time. This could be a major problem for their families or become a financial burden if they are unable to work during that time. They would also miss important events during that time such as holidays, family events, etc. To make sure that your loved one doesn't miss out on these important opportunities, you can pay their bail so they will be released from jail until their trial date. However, because bail bonds are often expensive, it is worthwhile to hire a bail bondsman. If you want to find cheap bail bonds to quickly get your loved one out of jail, working with a bail bond agency is often the best way to go.

Do you have a loved one in jail and aren't sure what type of bail bond to choose? We understand that this can be an overwhelming and confusing time, so we want to help make it easier for you. If you are cosigning a bond so your loved one can get out of jail, there are few things you many want to know about surety bonds. Here are five things you need to know about Surety bonds in the State of Texas.

What Is A Bail Bond?

A surety bond is a type of bail bond and is often a more popular option when it comes to bail bonds. Because a cash bond may be very costly, many people turn to a surety bond if the total bail amount is too high to afford. There are three parties involved in a surety bond – the defendant, the arresting agency, and the bail bondsman.

Why Choose A Bail Bond Instead of Paying Cash?

If your loved one is in jail and you want to help them with their release, but you don't have the full amount of cash for the bond, you may need a surety bond. With a surety bond, you can pay the premium (generally around 10 percent of the bail) and get your loved one out of jail. Hiring a bail bondsmen is an advantage, as you won't have to worry about your money being used toward the defendant's court fees, fines, etc.

What does Doc's charge for bonds?

Doc's has a minimum bond fee of around $125 for a bond of $350 set by the court.  The fee on a $500 bond is around $150, for a $750 bond it's around $175.  As you can see, for the smaller bond amounts and less serious the crime the fee charged is not based on a percentage of the bail. We don't charge as a percentage until the bond  gets up into the thousands.  For example, the fee on a $4,000 bond is usually $400 for a first time offender.  For someone who has been arrested a number of times, the fees are going to be higher.  If they've had a bond forfeiture in the past or have other risk factors, the prices go up.  Each bond is different and carries different risks, so the prices can vary. That being said, most bail bond companies charge fees ranging from 7-15% of the bail amount depending on the specifics. If you need help financing a bond with a short term payment plan we can help.

How Do Texas Bail Bond Hearings Work?

When a person gets arrested in the State of Texas and booked for a serious crime they must wait in jail until a bail bond hearing. At the bail hearing the judge will set the bail amount. If the person cannot afford bail, they must wait in jail until their court date, but there is a better option!  Bail is a process by which you pay a set amount of money to obtain your release from police custody. As part of your release, you promise to appear in court for all of your scheduled criminal proceedings. Hire a bail agent.

When contacting a bail agent, have as much information as possible including the full name of the person in jail, what jail they are in, their booking number and what charges. Our bail agents are on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week and will meet you regardless of the time of day and answer the phone all hours. We can meet you at the jail to post the bond or at our offices. If you are not in the same city as the defendant all paperwork and payments can be handled over the phone or electronically.

The Process of Posting Bail

When you 'post bail,' you are paying the amount that your bail was set at. This can generally be done in a few ways, including:

...

Posted on in Bail Bonds

Typically, a bail amount is set by the local court jurisdiction following the arrest of a defendant. This is to allow the defendant to be released from custody until his or her judicial proceedings begin. In many cases, trials can begin weeks or months after an initial arrest. This means that, if not for bail, many people (some of whom might be innocent) would have to wait in jail until that time. This is an issue for many reasons. First, it could present serious financial hardship because the defendant wouldn't be able to work for that period of time. Beyond that, he or she would be missing out on daily life- family, holidays and other events. Bail money acts as a way to assure the judge and prosecution that the defendant will appear for trial.

A family member, a close friend, or sometimes the defendant will contact a bail agent to arrange for the posting of the bail bond. The family member or friend that is guaranteeing the bond, also known as the indemnitor or co-signer, will complete paperwork and pay the premium, which is a percentage of the bond amount. By signing the paperwork, the indemnitor is guaranteeing that he or she will pay the full amount of the bond if the defendant fails to appear in court.

A judge will usually set the bail amount, taking into account the county schedule and particular details of the case. When you pay a percentage of this, sometimes the bail agent will require collateral to secure the guarantee of the bond and ensure the defendant's appearance in court. Collateral is anything of value that is pledged to secure the bond, such as cash, property, jewelry, etc. Upon complete resolution of the defendant's case and payment of all premiums in full, the collateral is returned.
