If you have been notified that someone you care for has been arrested by a member of the Campbell Police Department you likely have a lot of questions about how Campbell Police Department bail bonds work. Most people have never been asked to help get a loved one out of jail before. The first question that crosses most people’s minds is “how much will this cost”?
The California bail industry is regulated by the Department of Insurance (DOI) and the DOI, not individual company owners, set the rate at which all bondsmen are to charge their clients. That rate is 10%. If the defendant’s bail has been set at $20,000 you can expect to pay $2,000 to a bondsman in order to arrange a bond. No matter what California municipality, city or county a person is arrested in the cost to purchase bail bonds will be the same.
Bail amounts in the state are among the highest in the nation and the cost to hire a bondsman can often be in the thousands of dollars. If you are unable to pay the full cost up front, don’t worry. There are a number of companies who offer their clients the option of participating in a bail bonds payment plan.
If this is something you need you will want to ask lots of questions before signing any paperwork. How much money will they require you put down? Do they have minimum monthly payments? Do they charge interest or financing fees? How flexible can they be in terms of accommodating your individual situation? Just because all companies are required to charge the same rate that is not to say they all work the same. A bail bond contract is a legally binding document and you will want to make sure you have a full understanding of all the terms and conditions before signing your name on the dotted line.
