The city of Porterville is located 165 miles north of Los Angeles and 171 miles east of the Pacific Coast and is centrally located among major markets and access to major transportation routes. Agriculture has played a major role in the city’s growth over the years. The city has developed a unique vitality, with a quality of life much valued by residents, active support of children by the community, and careful planning of land use.
The Porterville Police Department has been serving its community since 1927. The department is overseen by Chief of Police Chuck McMillan. There are three divisions within the department: Investigative, Patrol, and Services.
The Investigative Division consists of two units: Special Investigations and General Investigations. Special Investigations focuses on gang and narcotic activity, while General Investigations focuses on other felony crimes in the city. Each unit has its own commander and sergeant. Special Investigations has four investigators and General has five. General Investigations are also supplemented by two part-time cold case investigators as well as a check-fraud investigator.
Patrol Division includes patrol officers, K9 officers, school resource officers, traffic unit and neighborhood crime suppression. Patrol officers are assigned to 4 geographical sectors to allow for sufficient coverage of the city. There is also a 10-person SWAT team which responds to high-risk incidents, like hostage situations and barricaded suspects.
Services Division is responsible for all departmental records- incident reports, accident reports, citations, etc. The Dispatch Center also operates 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
Arrest and Booking
When someone is arrested in Porterville, they will likely be taken to the Tulare County Jail for booking. The booking process consists of fingerprinting, photographs, a background check and nationwide warrant search. This could take several hours to complete, depending on how busy jail staff is at the time of booking. After booking is complete, a bail amount will be set for the defendant. Once they are completely booked in, the defendant will have the opportunity to post bail.
In California, the cost of a bail bond is 10%. For instance, if bail is set at $10,000, the fee a bondsman will charge is $1,000. We are pleased to accept payments with all major credit cards. We will even sit down and come up with a payment plan for those who qualify. In most cases we require no collateral for a bail bond.
This is a very stressful time for you, and we want to help make it go as smoothly as possible. We’ll take the time to walk you through the entire process so that you will feel more at ease.
