Santa Rita Jail

Arrest and Booking Information

Suspects arrested within the Bay Area are received at the intake and release center at 425 7th Street. This facility, maintained by the Alameda Sheriff’s Department, is only a temporary holding center and detainees will find themselves transported to their actual jail within a few hours.

During their time at the intake center, detainees go through a process known as “booking”. During the booking process, a suspect is fingerprinted, photographed, interviewed by detectives, and is searched against a national computer database to gain an idea of their background. Should a detainee have outstanding warrants in other states, they may be extradited to those states to stand trial on top of their court date in San Francisco.

If the arrest happened in Alameda County, the defendant will likely be transferred to one of two facilities maintained by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department after your booking. The primary detainment facility, Santa Rita Jail, is located on the site of a World War II-era military base at 5325 Broder Blvd in Dublin, California.

Bail Bonds and Collateral

In order to secure your release back into society between your arrest and your court date, you must first post bail. This is a financial agreement between you and the government which ensures you will show up on the day of your trial. Depending on the severity of your crime and your criminal history, this amount could be massive.

Collateral, or valuable items used to reinforce a debt or ensure payment for something, is generally not needed when seeking a bail bond. Rather, an examination of your personal stability and credit history may qualify you for what’s known as a “signature bond.”

Signature bonds, like their name suggests, are entirely no collateral. Many factors come into deciding whether or not you qualify for this special type of bond. A questionnaire detailing your length of residency within the state of California, employment history and current situation, credit rating, the type of crime, your character, and other factors will be administered prior to discussing options. This questionnaire helps to determine the risk to the bondsman and hopefully ensure that you get a collateral-free bond.

Collateral is returned upon conclusion of the defendant’s case and fulfillment of any standing financial obligations with the bondsman.
