When someone is arrested they will be taken to the Imperial County jail to be booked and processed into the system.

Very serious crimes will have much higher bail amounts than crimes that are considered to be minor in nature. The booking process often takes 4 to 6 hours and the jail will not allow the defendant to post bail until this this process is complete.
