Many people think arranging Riverside bail bonds is much more complicated than it actually is. If someone you care for has been arrested and taken to one of the Riverside County jails you may be relieved to learn that securing bail is a quick and easy process.
There is some information you will want to gather before you call a bondsman. During your consultation the bail agent will ask you some basic information about the defendant including their date of birth, the correct spelling of their first and last name, the jail they are being detained at and their bail amount, if you know it. If you don’t have all of that information handy, that’s OK. They will be able to look it up.
The next step will involve filling out the bail bonds paperwork. Some companies require Read more »
Supervisors for Riverside County accepted the state funding that will go towards expanding the local jails today. The county was awarded $100 million for this purpose, though that large sum will only be able to make so many improvements to the current system.
Reportedly, he expansion of the local facilities will do much to help alleviate the overcrowding at the Riverside County Jails due to the quickly-growing inmate population. This increase is due to the state’s recent implementation of the realignment plan, which sends low-risk prisoners to county correctional facilities to serve out their sentences.
A part of the realignment plan included providing funding to select counties in order to make necessary improvements to the current facilities or to construct new ones that can better serve the inmate population.

The proposal was brought forth by Supervisor Jeff Stone as a means of saving $3 million to $5 million in annual expenditures currently spent to house inmates.

Even if just 25 percent of prisoners pay for their jail stay the county Read more »
With the U.S. Supreme Court’s order last month, that California must reduce its prison population by more than 30,000 inmates over the next few years, Riverside County Jails are reportedly looking for possible solutions to help with the severe overcrowding issue.
The state could possibly send some of their inmates to county jails to serve out their sentences. Because of this, Riverside County is proposing to charge inmates for the cost of incarceration.
The plan is for inmates to repay the county for housing, feeding, clothing, and supervising them. Supervisor Jeff Stone says, “It’s $142 a day that it costs the taxpayers to house our convicts in our jails which amounts to $51,830 a year.” Stone admits that the idea is a long shot.
The plan also includes charging admission fees for Read more »
