When police arrest suspects, they are normally taken to the police station where they are questioned. More information about the suspect and situation is collected. Depending on the nature of the crime, the suspect may have the option to pay bail to avoid staying in jail while they await their trial. This is essentially a deposit that ensures that the suspect shows up for their court date. They are still closely monitored.
If they don’t pay bail, they have to wait in jail until their court date. Nobody wants to have to wait in jail. However, it may seem like their is no choice if you can’t afford the hefty bail prices. Thankfully, there are bail bond services that will pay for your bail if you can’t afford it. In this video, you will learn about bail bond services.
Bail bond services often have people who help enforce the court date visit. If the suspect doesn’t show, the bail bond people don’t get their money. This is why they have people who will check in on suspects to make sure they show up. As long as the suspect behaves, they won’t get into any extra trouble.
