Cost of Bail
The cost of a bail bond is 10% of the bail amount. For example, if bail is set at $15,000, then a premium of $1,500 will be paid to a bondsman. When searching for a bail bondsman, you may encounter an agency that will “negotiate” the price. If that is the case, go elsewhere for bail bond services. It is illegal for an agent to accept a lower premium than those set by the California Department of Insurance.
We know that nobody plans for someone to be arrested, and that having the money needed for a bail bond can be difficult. That is why we are happy to accept payments with all major credit cards. In many cases, we can make a payment plan with clients to help ease the financial strain that a bail bond can put them under.

The city of Hanford was settled by the Southern Pacific Railroad and incorporated in 1891. It grew to be one of the bustling sites of the west. As the county seat for Kings County, Hanford has a population of nearly 55,000 residents, which continues to grow each year.
The police department focuses on a program of Problem Oriented Policing. By remaining in constant contact with the community, both formally and informally, the quality of life for residents is enhanced. There is an exchange of communication between law enforcement and citizens which leads to the ultimate reduction of crime in the neighborhoods.
Members of the Hanford Police Department take part in both the Kings County Gang Task Force as well as the Narcotics Task Force. They work in conjunction with other Kings County agencies with the ultimate goals of significantly reducing gang violence and the availability and use of illegal drugs throughout the county.
When someone is arrested in Hanford, they will likely be transported to the Kings County Jail for booking. This will consist of fingerprinting, photographs, a background check and warrant search. A bail amount will also be set for the defendant, if applicable.
Bail Bond Responsibilities
When you enter into a bail agreement with a bondsman, you become what is known as an “indemnitor.” You are agreeing to be the person responsible for the bail contract and the defendant. By signing an agreement with a bail bondsman, you agree to pay the bail bond premium in full. This is the fee that is set by the state of California. It is equal to 10% of the total bail amount. This fee is non-refundable. Even if the defendant is found not guilty or charges are not filed, this fee must be paid.
It is your responsibility to make sure that, once released, the defendant shows up at any court appearances. If the defendant fails to appear, you are responsible for any fees and administrative costs incurred by the bondsman, court costs and you will be responsible for paying the entire bail amount set by the Kings County judge.
You must make sure that the defendant’s information, such as address and employer, remain current. If the defendant leaves town or “goes on the run,” it is your responsibility to notify the courts and bondsman of their whereabouts, if they are known to you.
