We handle bonds of every size, for both misdemeanor and felony charges, and of every conceivable variety. Our services are mobile and operate on a 24/7 basis, so we can meet you anywhere and at any time needed.
Where Can Hero Bail Bonds Post the Bail?
While we offer our bail bonds posting services nationwide, the main jails at which we typically post bail in the Las Vegas area are:
- Las Vegas City Jail
- Clark County Detention Center
- North Las Vegas Detention Center
- Henderson Detention Center
- Boulder City Jail
- Pahrump Jail
We are located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas and will waste no time in posting your bail at any jail in the entire area. We do not, as the practice of many other bail bonds agencies is, charge any "runner fees." We offer free bond delivery for all the bonds we issue.
You can arrange bail with us on-site at our office on 117 Gass Avenue, or if you prefer, you can arrange it over the phone with only a credit card and some basic information. Once you are approved for a bond, we guarantee that it will be posted fast- within a 20 minute time-frame. We also guarantee that all of your sensitive information will be kept fully confidential. We do not give out any of your private information to third parties.
How Does the Bail Bonds Process Work?
When someone is arrested in Las Vegas, that person must first be booked at a local jail before they can be imprisoned in a jail cell. The suspect will have his/her fingerprints scanned on a LiveScan device, will be photographed, and will have his bail amount assigned based on the severity of the alleged crime and any past criminal history.
Bail is purposefully set high to discourage defendant's from fleeing justice. This often puts full, upfront payment of bail out of reach and necessitates a bail bond agency post the bail. A friend or relative of the defendant will normally cosign a bail bond to get their loved one out of jail. The cosigner may be required to put up collateral for the full amount of the bail, but Nevada law sets bail bonds fees at 15% of the total bail.
When you contact Hero Bail Bonds to bail out your loved one, we will need to ask some basic questions such as the inmate's full legal name, current address, personal character, employment status, past criminal record, etc. We will also need to know all phone numbers by which we can contact you since we will need to stay in touch.
We have access to the inmate information databases of both Las Vegas and Clark County, which allows for faster and partially automated form-filling. We also know which authorities to contact to expedite the bail-out process. If you have access to a fax machine, this can speed things up even further. You will not need to accompany us to the jail to post the bail, however, since most local jurisdictions only allow professional bondsmen inside the jail.
When we post a bond, we guarantee the court that the defendant will appear for all court hearings at peril of losing the bail money. The cosigner guarantees us the bail money should it be forfeited to the court, but only pays a 15% premium. Financing options can be arranged if the cosigner cannot come up with the premium out of pocket.
The documentation process takes only about 30 minutes to complete. The inmate release process, after the bond is submitted to the proper authorities, can take from 3 to 12 hours, depending on variables like holidays, time of day, day of week, jail staff workload, etc.
Why Use a Bail Bond?
There are different types of bail-related bonds, four of which are as follows:
- Release on own recognizance - which is a simple, written promissory note to the judge to the effect that the defendant will appear for his/her scheduled court hearings. No bail, in this case, must be posted whatsoever. "Community status" factors like length of local employment and testimony of neighbors will determine if this option exists in each case.
- Cash bonds - which simply means paying bail in cash upfront. There is also a verification process, following federal guidelines, however, to ensure all money posted is "clean."
- Property bonds - which is the posting of real estate as bond money. The presiding judge determines the value of the property for bond-posting purposes.
- Citation release - which is used for traffic tickets. The ticket is issued with the court date printed on it in the place of an arrest and release on bail.
Since the above options do not apply in most cases, however a security bond called a "bail bond" is usually issued. This is a contractual agreement that functions essentially like an insurance policy. It allows you to bail your loved one out with only a fraction of the bail but makes you liable to pay the full bail should the bailed-out defendant fail to keep his/her court dates.
