Alameda County Sheriff’s Office
Complete Information for ACSO
Alameda County Sheriff’s Office
1401 Lakeside Drive, 12th Floor
Oakland, CA 94612
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) maintains five stations within Alameda County, as well as two jails. Its divisions are responsible for training, forensic examination, and the fifth largest jail in the United States.
The ASCO main headquarters is located on Floor 12 at 1401 Lakeside Drive, adjacent to Lakeside Park in Oakland, California. This location is one of the county’s municipal government hubs, also housing public defenders, victim assistance, general services, the grand jury, and the city’s art commission.
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office is an official extension of the State of California, and is accredited under the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), American Correctional Association (ACA), National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC), and California Medical Association (CMA) officially.
The ACSO maintains order over much of the East Bay region in the San Francisco Bay Area, with over 1500 paid employees helping to keep the more than 1.4 million residents of Alameda County safe. On top of this, the ACSO also helps the many tourists to the area and provides detention in its two jail facilities.
Dating back to 1853, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office has a rich and longstanding history. It was the first law enforcement agency to incorporate a numbering system into the booking process and its facilities have received a “triple crown” of accreditation which is only shared by twelve other agencies in the country. Not without controversy, in the 1960s the riot police of the ACSO were known as “blue meanies” due to the color of their jump suits as they battled Berkeley’s anti-government protesters.
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, on top of operating training facilities for law enforcement in the greater Bay Area, hosted a legendary “SWAT” exercise that was attended by officers from across the nation. With twenty scenarios ranging from renegades shooters to plane hijackings and distance hikes, the event was the largest of its kind in the nation’s history.
Alameda Jail Information
If picked up by the ACSO, one will have to be processed at one of its stations. This process includes booking, interviewing, and assignment to a detention facility. Once completed, the inmate will either be sent to the main facility, Santa Rita Jail, or the Glenn Dyer Detention Facility in downtown Oakland.
With an average of 330 inmates transported each day, the Transportation Unit of the ACSO is responsible for shuttling inmates to and from the two main detention centers and the various courts. Santa Rita Jail contains around four thousand prisoners, the Glenn Dyer Detention Facility about 800.
Bail Bonds in Alameda County
Posting bail on your own can be prohibitively expensive for many. With Tonya Page Bail Bond, the sting is taken out of the process. You pay a flat percentage of your total bail cost, in California 10%, and in return are set free with the expectation that you will appear in court. For example, a bail set at $40,000 will incur a $4000 charge. This small fee, a fraction of what you would pay, helps to ensure that you won’t sit in jail until your appointed court date.
Bail bonds are surprisingly convenient than with the internet. The defendant isn’t required to request a bond themselves, and instead anyone from a wife to a co-worker can step-up to the plate. Options available to you include in-person bonds, as well as bail bonds by email and fax.
The process for an email or fax bail bond is simple. Just call us and have the process explained and your questions answered, and then wait for the email or fax to come from the bond agent. Fill out basic information and your credit card information, and then fax it back. In about ten minutes, you can be on your way to posting bail and having your loved one released.
