The Madera County Sheriff’s Department was formed in 1893 when the county was founded. The Department is committed to promoting a safe and secure community, free of crime.
The Sheriff’s Department is divided into three separate divisions: the Valley Division, Mountain Division, and Administrative Division.
With the increase in the number of rural criminal activity, the Madera County Sheriff created one of the eight Agricultural crime task forces in the Central Valley. The Ag Crimes Unit has two sheriff’s detectives who are responsible for investigating all crimes that are agriculture-based.
The Madera County Dive Team is made up of seven sworn officers and two search and rescue volunteers. The team provides a variety of services, including rescue and recovery and evidence searches during criminal investigations. They respond to calls in lakes, canals, and swift water rescues.
The Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team plays an important role in emergency calls in Madera County as well as assisting in other counties across the state and country. Members of the unit must complete training in survival skills, tracking, navigation, first aid and many others.
The county’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) is comprised of members of sworn law enforcement personnel from local law enforcement agencies throughout the county, including Sheriff’s Department, Madera Police Department and Chowchilla Police Department.
The SWAT team has 20 full-time members: ten Deputies from Madera County Sheriff, eight officers from Madera PD, and 2 officers from Chowchilla PD. The SWAT team responds to calls that range from hostage rescue to barricaded suspects.
Arrest and Booking
If someone is arrested by the Madera Sheriff’s Department, they will likely be transported to the Madera County Jail for booking. They will be searched for drugs and any contraband and a medical exam may be performed. Fingerprints and photographs will be taken, and a background check and warrant search will be conducted.
Once the defendant is completely booked into the system, a bail amount will be set according to the Madera County bail schedule. They will then have the opportunity to post bail, either in full or with the help of a licensed California bail bondsman.
Cost of a Bail Bond
Paying the full amount of someone’s bail can be difficult for many people. While that money will be returned to them, it will only be done after the defendant’s court case has been concluded. This could take months or even years. For most people, using the services of a bail bondsman is their only option. The cost of a bail bond in California is 10% of the bail amount. For instance, if bail is set at $20,000, you will pay a fee of $2,000.
In most cases, we require no collateral for a bail bond. We accept payments made with all major credit cards. If you qualify, we can make a bail bond payment plan to help make the cost of a bail bond more affordable.
We know how stressful this situation can be. We will work quickly to get the simple paperwork completed and approve a bail bond so that your loved one will spend as little time in jail as possible.
