The booking process
The booking process starts with collecting information about the individual in custody including their name, where they live, contact information, and medical history. The jailer then logs and bags any personal items that the individual may have such as a watch, wallet, glasses, jewelry, etc. After the property is logged and stored, the jailer will take the person’s fingerprints on the live scan machine and obtain their picture for records. The person’s fingerprints are then sent to the county, the state, and the federal government for a background check.
The background check is to ensure that the person has no warrants or holds preventing them from being released from custody. This typically is the longest part of the booking process can take several hours to complete. Processing times depend on how many fingerprints need to be processed. Next, the inmate goes through a routine medical evaluation to ensure they have no medical conditions that the jail cannot handle. If medication needs to administer or the person requires immediate medical attention that the jail cannot administer, the person will be taken to the county for housing and medical attention. Women will go to Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood California and men will be taken to Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Downtown Los Angeles.
The jail will hold defendants in their custody up to 48 business hours depending on their charge level. Misdemeanors and warrants may see the judge the following day. Felony charges will see the judge within 48 hours of being booked into custody. Once the background check is completed, the booking process is done and the person will be eligible to be released on their own recognizance or will require a bond to be released from custody. In most cases, persons taken into custody will require a bond to be released from custody however some charges such as driving under the influence will most likely be released without bond.

More About Signal Hill, CA
Signal Hill is a small city which is an enclave city, meaning it is completely surrounded by the city of Long Beach. The city is located within Los Angeles County and is home to an estimated 10,951 residents as of 2005. The city shared three different postal codes with Long Beach at one point, but as of mid-2002, they received their own ZIP code. The hill in which the city is named for stands 365 feet above the surrounding area of Long Beach, and because of its height, its original inhabitants, the Tongva Indians, used it for signal fires that could be seen throughout the area, even out to Catalina Island, which sits a full 26 miles away.
Between 1913 and 1923, the city was used by an early movie studio, Balboa Amusement Producing Company. Movies starring Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton shot films located on Signal Hill. Oil was discovered in the area in June 1921 when the Alamitos #1, owned by the Shell Oil Company, erupted. The pressure was so great that the gusher of oil rose as high as 114 feet into the air. The area was soon covered with over 100 oil derricks, helping to give it the nickname ‘Porcupine Hill’ and making part of the Lon Beach oilfield, one of the most productive oil fields in the entire world. The city was officially incorporated into Los Angeles County in April 1924 to avoid annexation by Long Beach and its per-barrel oil tax. The city’s first mayor was Jessie Nelson who was also the first female mayor in California. The most famous resident to ever live in the city was boxer Kid Mexico whose real name was Tod Faulkner. Kid Mexico was California’s bantamweight champion in 1914 when he was just 14 years old; he had lied about his age to be able to fight. He was also the state’s welterweight champion in 1925. Although it is small, the city is home to four large parks and six pocket parks. The most popular of the parks is Hilltop Park, known for its great views, the park houses several telescopes. The pocket parks in the city are .5 acres or less and include Calbrisas Park, Hillbrook Park, Temple View Park, Raymond Arbor Park, Panorama Promenade and Sunset View Park.
